I can´t believe it took me three years
To discover what a fool I've been
Now I can see that she just kept me
On the threshold but that she never let me in

She said that we would be the best of friends forever
Then she said everything to me
I froze and watched her when she just tore my heart wide open
Before she poured her salt in it

So I took her from the pillar and put her in a drawer
What once was a treasure, my everything before
Lost all its glow and value
Now I can't even hate her anymore

I was a sudden strike of insight out of nowhere
It sort of woke me from a dream
It was a tiny piece of glass there on the pavement
And not the diamond I had seen

So I took it from the pavement and put it in a drawer
What once was a treasure, my everything before
Lost all its glow and value
Now I can't even hate her anymore
I could never get her, not even get up close
She was a mystery
But now I've solved the riddles, I found the missing puzzle piece
Now she´s history

So I took her from the pillar and put her in a drawer
What once was a treasure, my everything before
Lost all its glow and value
Now I can't even hate her anymore
