What took so long to build
Took a moment to slip away
You could barely hide
The satisfaction on your face
Time takes another day
Changes you in subtle ways
Lifts you up then slowly lets you go
Sitting there across the room
Your smile looks like a threat
I'm living underneath the heel
Of what you might say next
Memory works in strange ways
Cuts you down makes you pay
One day you'll be walking fine
The next day lightning hits you from behind
One heart one love
Two people who can't rise above
Each time we fall
Don't know what I was thinking of
Don't say it's so
Don't say it's so
Let me be the last to know
Seems we move backward now
The further on we walk
Hard to find a single line
Through all our double talk
Home late and drunk again
Close the door shut out the rain
One more day no damage done
But my spirits are falling sinking
Like the sun
One heart one love
Two people who can't rise above
Each time we fall
Don't know what I was thinking of
Don't say it's so
Don't say it's so
Let me be the last to know
I'm standing at your doorway
I can hear your voice inside
You're telling all your friends
What you're gonna say to me tonight
Write me a better part
Find the words to break your heart
Keep you on your knees forever
Funny how my tongue gets tied together
One heart one love
Two people who can't rise above
Each time we fall
Don't know what I could be dreaming of
Don't say it's so
Don't say it's so
Let me be the last to know
