(Carrie Ann Newcomer)

Been a long time comin', and the cards were stacked.
It's been a long hard road to hell and back.
You were love-makin' trouble from the day we met.
You won every hand; I lost every deck.

Now you'd think that I should've known better.
Now you'd think that I would have seen it comin'
My heart sayin', when I read that letter:
"Sink like a stone; sink like a stone."

If I could stop yesterday's mail,
Brown love like this is always bound to fail.
Your love meant trouble from the day we met,
If you wanted your things, they're on the front step.

Now you'd think that I should've known better.
Now I think that I should have seen it comin'
An' my heart sayin', when I read that letter:
"Sink like a stone; sink like a stone."

All alone in my kitchen, all alone in my head.
Some things you can't take back once they've been said.
Don't know why this love is full.
All I know is I don't want it anymore.

Now you'd think that I should've known better.
I, I should have seen it comin'
My heart sayin', when I read that letter,
"Sink like a stone; sink like a stone."
