Story behind the song
I struggled with this song more than any other song I have ever written. I wanted it to truthfully depict the sadness, but also the love.
Lyrics
BROKEN GLASS They’ve shared a life he can’t remember They’ve shared a life she can’t forget She’s the stranger in the mirror Who combs his hair and helps him dress They started young raisin’ a family Seldom took time for themselves Had a closeness most can only dream Through rich or poor, sickness and health Before his memory of their history Was shattered like a mirror into pieces of their past Like broken glass He used to joke “I don’t remember squat” She’d just say “You work too hard” Now lost among his scattered thoughts He still holds her in his arms Before his memory of their history Was shattered like a mirror into pieces of their past Like broken glass He’ll always be - the husband that she loves She’ll always see - the father that he was Before his memory of their history Was shattered like a mirror into pieces of their past Like broken glass
