Precious lyrics

Precious and fragile things
Need special handling
My God what have we done to you?

We always tried to share
The tenderest of care
Now look what we have put you through

Things get damaged, things get broken
I thought we'd manage, but words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

Angels with silver wings
Shouldn't know suffering
I wish I could take the pain for you

If God has a master plan
That only He understands
I hope it's your eyes He's seeing through

Things get damaged, things get broken
I thought we'd manage, but words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in your hearts for two

Things get damaged, things get broken
I thought we'd manage, but words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

    This song remains me of my birth town. Mexico, City. When I was growing up (11 years old) I used to go to a place where the people would "just land". (Whole communities would just settle, over night, in cardboard boxes). I would observe how the people struggled to feed their own and made me wonder "what could I do to change that"? I still can’t answer that question.

    I pray you learn to trust
    Have faith in both of us

    Confianza es la palabra que nos derrumba el mundo encima cuando tu y yo sentimos que nuestro amor es inmortal. Ten fe en noostros.Ten fe en nuestro amor. Ten fe y confianza en mi. No me hieras màs con el espacio tan frìo y cortante que me deja tu silencio.

    This song is about Martin Gores divorce... He has written it for his children...

    We always tried to share
    The tenderest of care
    Now look what we have put You through

    I pray you learn to trust
    Have faith in both of us
    And keep room in your hearts for two (for mum and dad)
    As Darthpitufina says.

    I think this song tries to explain why some people split up when there are children in between. I don´t know, maybe it has a totally different meaning, but I´ve always thought that it was the explaination a dad gives to his child when things aren´t going to be the same.

    Damaged, I think we can damage stuff without completley ruining them, life are not all black & white, when you damage there are conciqunces but most of the time they are not fatal. besides I think this song is somewhat about bad desigions.. brilliant choice of words. mayb not a fan for the sound but most certenly for the lyrics.

    THINGS GET DAMANGED?
    things do not get damanged
    when you damange something you ruin it
    weither its a heart or an object
    choice the right choices
    or live with the conciqunces

    De alguna manera sé que es lo que piensas en lo más profundo de tu corazón, no con palabras pero sí con sentimientos. Me siento desagraviada cada vez que la escucho, porque si ha llegado ahora hasta mí, es porque Alguien quiere que lo sepa.
    Es lo mejor.
    There was so little left to give.

    Esta cancion me recuerda el momento en el q estuvimos separados por primera vez, pasaba la tarde escuchando musica para poder sentirme mejor, sentir menos tu ausencia, pero ahora añoro esos dias , estamos mal y no lo quieres aceptar, nos equivocamos en volver, thing get damaged , things get broken............
