Her goodbye kisses kept me warm through Providence
Yours, they barely get me out the door
I could sit here trading empty promises
If you had ones I felt like trading for

My favorite cousin taught me how to break a lover's heart
And baby, I don't mean to let you down
But this has been my train ride from the very, very start
And you were just a paperback I'd found

There's no time to lose your mind
Slowly back away from the flames you've been fueling
You've got yours and I've got mine
You'd be better off finding somebody new
To give your troubles to

Maybe something's wrong with me, maybe I'm a prick
But some days I just want to make you cry
Tell you not to bother, save your sutures for the sick
And leave your medicine for better men than I

And I can't tell you why I'm taking pride in my defeats
But I've been burned, and baby I've been down
You tell me that you're lonely, girl, you're preaching to the priest
And he's got better things to do than stick around

There's no time to lose your mind
Slowly back away from the flames you've been fueling
You've got yours and I've got mine
You'd be better off finding somebody new
To give your troubles to
