It can't be saved, this love is beyond repair, my dear
But at least I'm twice the man that I once was
All things end and now I will only call you friend
My heart will not allow the words up through my throat
'Cause you walked away
My best wasn't good enough for you
I pulled most of the shrapnel from my heart
But I left a piece to remind me that

She is the heart juggler but I don't wear clown makeup or big shoes
Fire me from the cannon, far away from her tightrope
She promised to never close the door on us
But she opens and she slams it as she pleases
Juggling hearts is a messy business, mistress

A Trojan horse could not breach the perimeter
Do you think people deserve a second chance?
I've set a new course, these arms will hold somebody new
It's a grand ocean that only invites bold sailors
'Cause you sailed away, you went to Antarctica via the Bermuda triangle
He followed you into the abyss for the sake of an icy kiss
Like a dog with his tongue hanging out

She is the heart juggler but I don't wear clown makeup or big shoes
Fire me from the cannon, far away from her tightrope
She promised to never close the door on us
But she opens and she slams it as she pleases
Juggling hearts is a messy business, mistress

It's cruel to say you love me, my heart is all or nothing
Put your head upon my chest, the beating has no soul left
And there is so much truth in the space between our words
And it clings to bubbles and it rises to the surface
On an island there's a circus where she resides

She is the heart juggler but I don't wear clown makeup or big shoes
Fire me from the cannon, far away from her tightrope
She promised to never close the door on us
But she opens and she slams it as she pleases
Juggling hearts is a messy business, mistress
Juggling hearts is a messy business, mistress
