Debra Fotheringham – Subtraction lyrics

Subtraction and you're gone.
Just like that.
In seconds flat.

Reaction. I had none.
No more to add.
Gone from have to had.

June passed by so quick.
The timid talks and my lipstick.
July just wasn't enough.
In my plans it was never this rough.

Math is not my strong suit.
I don't know pi from a square root.
But I know subtraction.

Subtraction and we're gone.
And all of the trust
Has turned to dust.

Distractions, they were wrong.
No more to say.
Last look, walk away.

I read this in a book.
They said pages in one look.
But I saw just one thing.
And I knew the meaning.

Math is not my strong suit.
I don't know pi from a square root.
But I know subtraction.

You say two can care
And still not make a pair
And I say love just ain't fair.

Love is not my strong suit.
It never seems to take root.
But I know subtraction.
