fiery-eyed and foul mouthed she's had all she can take
of an unresponsive boyfriend who's pushing for a break
and I know that I'm the bad guy, but i'm bad for goodness sake

the bitter of mid-winter is the time she'll have to choose
and oh, i couldn't force the issue, there's still so much to lose
and you can lead a horse to water but it only thins the glue
in this life long test you'll only do your best
of times can only prove that there can be no substitute
for moments when the fear has fled like love annulled my fear of death

and i gave the girl my body but it still was not enough
because time is an investment and you can't compete with love
so we'll live with these decisions but it's this i will impart
you can hold on once, but twice will break your heart

the moment when the news broke came as hardly a surprise
for while we all know love lies bleeding, yeah it rarely ever dies
oh and romance wasn't really dead, it merely closed its eyes
whether wrong or right you don't give up the fighting and the fortitude the anger and the attitude, the lives we lead without regret and love annulled my fear of death

and i gave the girl my body but it still was not enough
because time is an investment and you can't compete with love
so we'll live with these decisions but it's this i will impart
you can hold on once, but twice will break your heart

the best of days can only prove that there will be no substitute
for moments when the fear has fled my love annulled my fear of death
