BREAK IN THE CUP  David Wilcox

I [Em7]try so hard to please you, to be the [C]love that fills you up
I try to [Em7]pour on sweet affection but I think you got a bro[C]ken cup
Because you [Em7]can't believe I love you
I try to [C]tell you that there is no doubt
But as [D]soon as I fill you with [Em]all I've got
That little [C]break will let it run right [D]out
[G]I cannot make you [C]happy, I'm learning [G]love and money never [C]do
But I can [G]pour mys[D+]elf out till I'm [Em7]empty
trying to be [C]just who you'd want me [D]to
But [G]I cannot make you [C]happy even [B7]though our love is [Em7]true
for there's a [G]break in the cup that [C]holds love [D]Inside of you[Em7] [C]
Now I begin to understand you as you explain this fear you feel
It's when you see me fall into that sorrow, it makes you doubt the love is
'cause the lonely wind still blows through me
I turn away so you can't see
But now how could I still be so empty
with all the love that you pour on me.
I guess you cannot make me happy, that's just a money back guarantee
but you can pour yourself out till you're empty
trying to be just who I'd want you to be.
You cannot make me happy, it's the law of gravity
and that break in the cup that holds love, inside of me.
So if you're [F]tempted to rescue me,
drowning in this [C]quicksand up to my [G]neck
Before you [F]grab my hand to save me
Why don't you [C]ask me if I'm finish[Dsus4]ed yet?
Because you cannot make me happy, not when I'm empty inside of me
But you can pull yourself right in here with me
My misery'd love to have your company
[G]We cannot trade empty for [C]empty, we must [B7]go to the [Em7]waterfall
For there's a break in the cup that holds love
a break in the cup that holds love
a break in the cup that holds love
Inside us all.
