Yeah I want a different answer
So I ask you once again
But the truth in the silence this time I got it
It's over!

Thank you for breaking my heart
Now I know that it's in there
I left it wide open
And asked you to stay
But you know better!

Guess I thought it wouldn't happen
And I could care until it hurt
Damn the ironic timing
The clouds and their linings
That open up and pour

And thank you for breaking my heart
Now I know that it's in there
What a fool to imagine
That you'd feel the same
But you know better

Rain has washed the leaves away
Skeletons and stars
I'm pulling the door to
And closing the blinds

So thank you for breaking my heart
Now I know what it feels like
And it hurts so badly
Tell me this will pass
Soon enough know better
