James Morrison feat. Nelly Furtado - Broken Strings

Let me hold you for the last time
It’s the last chance to feel again
But you broke me
Now I can’t feel anything

When I love you, rings so untrue
I can’t even convince myself
When I’m speaking, it’s the voice of someone else

Oh it tears me up
I try to hold on, but it hurts too much
I try to forgive, but it’s not enough to make it all ok

You can’t play on broken strings
You can’t feel anything
that your heart don’t want to feel 
I can’t tell you something that ain’t real
Oh the truth hurts
A lie’s worse
How can I give anymore
When I love you a little less than before

Oh what are we doing 
We are turning into dust 
Playing house in the ruins of us

Running back through the fire
When there’s nothing left to save
It’s like chasing the very last train
When it’s too late, too late

Oh it tears me up
I try to hold on but it hurts too much
I try to forgive, but it’s not enough to make it all ok

You can’t play on broken strings
You can’t feel anything
That your heart don’t want to feel
I can’t tell you something that ain’t real
Oh the truth hurts
A lie’s worse
I cannot give any more
When I love you a little less than before

Oh we’re running through the fire
When there’s nothing left to save
It’s like chasing the very last train
When we both know it’s too late

You can’t play on broken strings
You can’t feel anything
That your heart don’t want to feel 
I can’t tell you something that ain’t real
Oh the truth hurts
A lie’s worse
How can I give any more
When I love you a little less than before
Let me hold you for the last time
It’s the last chance to feel again
