I just dropped in, cause I could use a friend
And a little bit of consolation
I'm hanging by a thread from the southern end of my rope
If you really wanna know I'll do my best to explain my situation
Maybe I can find the words
If the tears don't get me first

Chorus
It's kinda like fallin' from the sky
When you're up a mile high
And your parachute won't open
Kinda like clingin' to the bottom of the bottom
When the bottom drops out
The only way I know to say how bad her leaving hurts
It's kinda like a heartache, only worse

It wasn't my first brush with love
But this one was the deepest
Yeah, I've been blue but this time it's closer to black
Swore I'd never get hurt again
But here I am in pieces
When this was broke my heart that was just the start

Chorus

It's kinda like being cut open
Kinda like being burned at the stake
Kinda like drownin' in the ocean knowin'
Knowin' there's no help on the way

Chorus

Only worse
