Shoshana Bean – Broken Even lyrics

You know I never been too good at math
I use my fingers to count (She use her fingers to count)
But the result of our equation
Isn't too hard to figure out (It don't take a genius)
I gave you seven good years
To make up for seven bad
I'd say I paid off
Any debt I might've had

A little lost
A little gained
In the end
We've broken even

Every night when I'm on my way home
I wonder what I'm gonna find (when she walks through the door)
You're either burnin' or freezin' me out
You're made of fire and ice
I know I've done wrong
But you matched me with one
So I am absolved, I am free, I am done

Up and down
Back and forth
No more keeping score
We've broken even

See I was waiting
Til' something better came along
To give me a good reason for leaving
I was wasting precious time
And sacrificing happiness
(Yes she was)
But true love doesn't punish
And it does not possess
And leaving you has sure been worth the price
Worth the price of loneliness

Now I was trapped like a prisoner
Who had no lock on her cell
(She had no lock on her cell, YEA)
But now I'm springing the joint and
I'm no longer under your spell
Your wrong plus mine have come out alright
So I have no shame when I lay down at night

You don't owe apologies
You don't owe a thing to me
We've broken even

Up and down
Back and forth
No more keeping score we've
Broken even

A little lost
A little gained
In the end we've
Broken even
