lyrics

I was given a gift
I know I didn't deserve one
like a little boy on Christmas morning
I ripped it open
All I never wanted
all anyone ever needed
I knew right away
by the way it fit my hand
I better put it down before I break it
put it down before I break it
put it down before I break it into pieces

So sweet it hurt my teeth
so warm at night I could not sleep
So hard to find a place in here
for something that I can keep
so I keep it far away
yeah up high then I walked away
I turn around for one more look
I heard somebody say
put it down before you break it
put it down before you break it
put it down before you break it into pieces

sometimes I feel like you're testing me
'cause in the past I've broken everything
I've broken everything...
Put it down before you break it
put it down before you break it
put it down before you break it into pieces
