Break in the Cup
Break in the Cup David Wilcox (c) 1994 Em7 C I try so hard to please you, to be the love that fills you up Em7 C I try to pour on sweet affection but I think you got a broken cup Em7 Because you can't believe I love you C I try to tell you that there is no doubt D Em But as soon as I fill you with all I've got C D That little break will let it run right out G C G C I cannot make you happy, I'm learning love and money never do G D+ Em7 But I can pour myself out till I'm empty C D trying to be just who you'd want me to G C B7 Em7 But I cannot make you happy even though our love is true G C D Em7 C for there's a break in the cup that holds love Inside of you 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 real. '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. F G if you're tempted to rescue me, C G drowning in this quicksand up to my neck F Before you grab my hand to save me C Dsus4 Why don't you ask me if I'm finished 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 C B7 Em7 We cannot trade empty for empty, we must go to the 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.
