Shattered
Like a windowpane
Broken by a stone
Each tiny piece of me lies alone

And scattered
Far beyond repair
All my shiny dreams
Just lying there

I’m broken, but I’m laughing
It’s the sound of falling glass
I hope that you won’t mind if I should cry,
In public, while I wait for this to pass

‘Cause I’m shattered
Into fragments cold and gray
Sweep the pieces all away
Then no one will ever know how much it mattered
You dropped me and my precious love 
is shattered

I’m broken, but I’m laughing
It’s the sound of falling glass
I hope that you don’t mind if I should cry,
In public, while I wait for this to pass

‘Cause I’m shattered
Into fragments cold and gray
Sweep the pieces all away
Then no one will ever know how much it mattered
And something deep inside of me
Shattered

from Jimmy Webb’s Still Within the Sound of My Voice (2013)
