And you feel like every word is just common sense.
But then that heartache reveals your incompetence,
And you realize that common sense ain't been common since.
If love don’t cost a thing then why does it always leave you broke?
Standing in the courtroom arguing over who gets the most.
Good times always seem to turn into bad memories,
Staring at old photo’s and asking, “do you remember me”?
Please pardon all these skeleton’s in my closet,
Still love don’t cost thing, but she gonna need a deposit.
That’s why I'm posting pretty pictures all over my facebook
To replace the man who used to tell me how pretty my face looked.
My ex told me he loved me and made a bad decision,
And everyday he thinks about the love that he knows he's missing.
And I used to hope that one day he would feel that pain,
Thinking that knowledge would help me to be whole again,
But honestly his honesty had the opposite effect,
Now I’m feeling bad about every word that I ever said.
I was just hurt baby you know I never I meant it,
I wrote you a hate letter, but I never sent it.
So as you lay in your bed with your eyes open,
And your mind’s numb, and your hearts broken.
Find the will to say everything that you mean,
Or watch our love drown in a sea of words left unspoken.
