He'll be sorry in the morning
You say he's tender when you're home
But if I was your man, I'd be more than
just a cure for being alone

You say you see some good in him
you can't explain
And he's somehow better than
the way he behaves

But the fact is that in practice
his love grinds you like a stone
And you're wrapped around
the axle now, afraid to let
the whole thing go

CHORUS
You can't drain the sea and stay afloat
You can't take the knot but leave the rope

Water it won't ever run clear
rinsing your heart out in the sink
stay and all you'll ever get, dear
is a lighter shade of pink

But the fact is that in practice,
his love cuts you to the bone
and you're wrapped around the axle, now
afraid to let the whole thing go

CHORUS

We've all loved liars
but most have learned
that those who play with fire
spend their whole lives
icing burns
