Lyrics

A window left open
And the pillow is soaking wet
Who says love, ever comes without tolls
She sends no kindness
No words of regret
When she put the fork in the road

There’s a ring with a diamond missing
It was lost in the backseat of a car
There’s a dollar on the floor in the kitchen
Christmas lights blinking on a long dead tree in the parlour

Cheaters never prosper
Cheaters never win

Long hair
Big eyes
And she always needs money
Did I find her?
Or was she the one who chose?
I wanna drown
Like a fly in the honey
And she stole the blush
From the rose

Long hair big eyes and she always needs money
Did I find her
Or was she the one who chose
I wanna drown
Like a fly in the honey

Because she stole the blush
From the rose
