When it's one-sided you hide it
When it's one-sided why bother to deny it?
If you want to jump ship now is the time to
Better to have loved than to never have been through this
One foot out the door in love

Meanwhile, I've got one foot stuck in the grave
I'm pale as a ghost ship never meant to sail
A letter never mailed

(Whoa ah oh oh)

There was a point where I felt that something's gonna fall in my lap
Like a sign from an angel that tells me where to go (oh oh oh)
Well I do know (oh oh oh)
And I'm more lost now than I was back then
But I never once imagined I'd be begging for empathy

It's a one-foot-out-the-door love
It's a one-foot-out-the-door kind of love
It's a one-foot-out-the-door love
It's a one-foot-out-the-door kind of love

Give me just a sign just a little sign that there is more than this
Give me just a sign just a little sign that there may be more than just this
Give me just a sign just a little sign that there is more than this
Give me just a sign just a little sign that there may be more than just this

Meanwhile, I've got one foot stuck in the grave
I'm pale as a ghost ship never meant to sail
A letter never mailed

(Whoa ah oh oh)

There was a point where I felt that something's gonna fall in my lap
Like a sign from an angel that tells me where to go (oh oh oh)
Well I do know (oh oh oh)
There was a point where I felt that something's gonna fall in my lap
Like a sign from an angel that tells me where to go (oh oh oh)
Well I do know (oh oh oh)
And I'm more lost now than I was back then
But I never once imagined I'd be begging for empathy

It's a one-foot-out-the-door love
It's a one-foot-out-the-door kind of love
It's a one-foot-out-the-door love
It's a one-foot-out-the-door kind of love

    General Commentthis song is pretty much my anthem right now. it has the perfect way of explaining the feeling of knowing a relationship is not working out but not having the courage to end it. you have one foot out the door. you need to believe there is something more than this relationship. the scary part is what comes after. be happy today.
