A heart-felt song about reconciliation.

Words and music by Jim Byrne

The handle is broken on my cup
There is no way to fill me up

Oh no, oh no

As I  watched you turn your back
It crossed my mind you won't be back

Oh no, oh no

And all the plans
that we made
I won't let them fade away

I did not mean to break your heart
Never meant to be apart

Oh no, oh no

And all the plans
that we made
I won't let them fade away

And on the days the days that lie ahead
I will try to mend this broken thread

And hold you closer to my heart
And know this love will be our start
and we will never be apart

The handle is broken on my cup
