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
So 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.
