Dam Would Break

Toad The Wet Sprocket

Music by Glen Phillips and Toad. Lyrics by Glen Philips.

is it this place that makes me fall from you

forget the words that once rang so true

did we expect that life was ever fair, my god...

i sowed a field of rose and reaped a whipping rod

and everything i've held too tight inside

could make a part of me die

and if my lips could only speak the name

the dam would break

what is this ice that gathers round my heart

to stop the flood of warmth before it even starts

it would make me blind to what i thought would always be

the only constant in the world for me

and every hours of every day

i need to fight from pulling away

and if my mind could only lose the chain

the dam would break

for all the things i hid away

and all the words i could not say

the dam would break
