Broken Glass
Inner Circle Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Because we dance
That doesn't mean we're in love (oh oh)
Like broken glass
This love will never last

I'm gonna do all you want me to do
Even more but nothing less
(Gonna put) love to the test
Won't come running back to you

Before we close the door
Let's try one more




Crazy as it may seem
I can see the glow in your eyes

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Inner Circle's song Broken Glass depict someone who is in a relationship that is going nowhere. The chorus, "Because we dance, that doesn't mean we're in love, like broken glass this love will never last" indicates that physical attraction and dancing does not necessarily mean that two people are in love. The line "This love will never last" suggests that the relationship is not built on a solid foundation and is doomed to fail. The verse "I'm gonna do all you want me to do, even more but nothing less" suggests that one of the partners is willing to do anything to save the relationship, but the following line "Gonna put love to the test, won't come running back to you" indicates that the singer knows the relationship is not worth saving and that it is time to move on. However, the last lines of the song "Before we close the door, let's try one more, crazy as it may seem, I can see the glow in your eyes" suggests that there is still some hope for the relationship despite its flaws.


Overall, Broken Glass is a song about a doomed relationship that is held together by physical attraction rather than genuine love. The lyrics warn against mistaking attraction for love and encourage listeners to recognize when a relationship is no longer worth fighting for. The final lines of the song suggest that there is still some hope for the relationship, but ultimately the singer knows that the relationship is doomed to fail.
