When We Fall Apart
by Ryan Stevenson

Album: When We Fall Apart - Single


Verse 1
You were 43 when you got the news
Life will be changing, nothing we can do
The clock is ticking now, all I can think about
Is knowing I have to move on without you somehow
And I just can't believe that you're the one who's keeping it together
As you hold my hand and say

Chorus
It's okay to cry, it's okay to fall apart
You don't have to try, to be strong when you are not
And it may take some time to make sense of all your thoughts
But don't ever fight your tears 'cause there is freedom in every drop
Sometimes the only way to heal a broken heart
Is when we fall apart

Verse 2
You ask me to sing some songs that I wrote
But I can barely speak, can barely play a note
All my tears rush in, falling on my strings
And make the sound of these progressions have a different ring
And I hate to say goodbye, knowing this will be the last time we're together
As you close your eyes and say

Chorus
It's okay to cry, it's okay to fall apart
You don't have to try, to be strong when you are not
And it may take some time to make sense of all your thoughts
But don't ever fight your tears 'cause there is freedom in every drop
Sometimes the only way to heal a broken heart
Is when we fall apart, oh

Bridge
And you've got the gift of mercy, don't ever think it's strange
Not a curse, but it is a blessing to feel other people's pain
And always love without condition and trust with all your heart
There's healing in the story of your scars

Verse 3
Well, it's been a while since you've been gone
Sometimes I still catch myself trying to call your phone
All the hopes and dreams we used to talk about
They're still alive in me and I just hope I make you proud
Now I'm your legacy and it's your love still holding me together
And I still hear you say

Chorus
It's okay to cry, it's okay to fall apart
You don't have to try, to be strong when you are not
And it may take some time to make sense of all your thoughts
But don't ever fight your tears 'cause there is freedom in every drop
Sometimes the only way to heal a broken heart
Is when we fall apart (Yeah, yeah, it's okay to fall)
Sometimes the only way to heal a broken heart
Is when we fall apart
