STOP BREAKIN’ DOWN Music/lyrics: bill mallonee

This is gonna be short
This is gonna be sweet
this gonna be tidy
this is gonna be neat
like a deal gone bad
like the hand you’ll fold
when the cards hit the table
and the truth gets told
Stop breakin’ down
Stop breakin’ down
Stop breakin’ down
Stop breakin’ down
Stop breakin’ down
...on me

I remember when
when we first met
nobody now
plays that hard to get
I forgot just where
where my solo was
when I looked in your eyes
and the monitors buzzed

Is it gonna be just?
Is it gonna be fair?
I wonder where you got
got that idea?
It’s a glass that’s broken
and these shards of trust
baby, all that’s golden
gonna turn to dust


from THE POWER & THE GLORY (2011), track released October 2, 2011
