lyrics

I walked in with you sitting there
Spouting lines without a care
My mouth was split wide open
I knew from the very start
Your tales would tear us apart
My mind was split wide open

Everyone says I should've seen it coming
But I waited for you when I should've been running
Now it's all gone south, and so have you, honey
But I haven't a tear to spare

Everyone says I should've seen it coming
But I waited for you when I should've been running
Now it's all gone south, and so have you, honey
But I haven't a tear to spare

Oh, this house seems so empty now
I haven't one picture to hang
No shoes to rest beneath my bed
No one to come home to

But I'm glad for one thing I guess
That's having you off my chest
Though it's split wide open
No, I don't want my dresses back
God knows who's been wearing them
Split 'em all wide open

Everyone says I played the part of the fool
Turning my back on what I knew wasn't true
There's nothing left of this heart in my chest
It's split wide open
