"Don't hurt this one," you'll say
"It won't be love in two days."
Say the words, a sentimental whim, no meaning
It's just for the exchange, just to reciprocate

You blame your sticky situation, darling
Retell it like it was before
You play innocence like a little baby
You're old enough not to ignore

Clinging to past lovers
Turning back to old
A memory of her, well you can't let go
Hanging from the rafters
Of a home you once owned
You won't let her, you won't let go

You're pleading, well "Please don't hate me."
It doesn't stand for anything
Say the words, a sentimental whim, no meaning
It's just for the exchange, just to reciprocate

I scrape my heart up off the floor
You say "You're not welcome anymore."
So play your hand, but understand
The rules can change at any time

Clinging to past lovers
Turning back to old
A memory of her, well you can't let go
Hanging from the rafters
Of a home you once owned you
You won't let her, you won't let go

I'll walk away, walk away
And won't be holding on
It's your mistake, the choice you made
She'll never love you, oh

I'll walk away, walk away
And won't be holding on
It's your mistake, this choice you made
She'll never love you like I do

Clinging to past lovers
Turning back to old
A memory of her, well you can't let go
Hanging from the rafters
Of a home you once owned you
You won't let her, say you won't let go
Clinging to past lovers
Turning back to old
A memory of her, well you can't let go
Hanging from the rafters
Of a home you once owned you
You won't let her, say you won't let go
