Don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
A hint of a scent then it's gone
Look at the state of you, you're all fingers and thumbs

So who's your latest flame?
Driving 'em wild in the fast lane?
Won't say I told you so, but the boy has no shame

Once when my hands were full
We were double or quits then some
Nothing at all to show for a love so precious

Gone and blown it all
How can you say, 'it doesn't matter much to me'? A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blown it all
And then you say, 'this can't be happening to me'
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
The thrill of the chase then it's gone
Only the hurt to prove that it ever went on

And life is a wonderful thing
When you're humming the words to a love song
Do what you wanna do, be who you want to be

When I'm in your arms I'm strong
There's nowhere I'd rather be
We shine for liberty, life and the pursuit of pleasure

Gone and blown it all
How can you say, 'it doesn't matter much to me'?
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blown it all
And then you say, 'this can't be happening to me'
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

And how the days have flown too few and fast
They said it wasn't meant to last
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
