A palace for the princess of pretension
A garden that we never should have shared
The castle walls are falling all around us
The sound of sadness sober in the air

Could you see what I could see
When I let you fall for me

The nights were full of graveyard shifts
The towns that I was going to
And the dollars burn holes in my pockets
But what good's the money if I can't spend it on you

And I will rest my case when you divorce me
Love ain't what it seems to be
And I would call your name and you'd ignore me
Love ain't what it used to be
But it used to be

This is more than what we bargained for
I wonder why we ever had to meet
It turns out that our reception
Was just a place for the in-crowd
To have somewhere to drink

And I will rest my case when you divorce me
Love ain't what it seems to be
And I would call your name and you'd ignore me
Love ain't what it used to be
But it used to be

I'd have covered you my lover
You would never, ever bleed
I'd have bought you all the glory too
If that is what you need
The odds were just against us
And I'm so tired of the lies
I will rest my case when you divorce me
Love ain't what seems to be
I could call your name and you'd ignore me
'Cause love ain't what it used to be
But it used to be
