I've been a cold-hearted man
I've been the stone cold killer
You've been the good-hearted girl
You've been the constant forgiver
I've been frayed at the ends
I nearly drowned in the river
And I was busted up
But you can trust my love

Did I smoke you like a cigarette
Flick the ashes to the ground and then soon forget
Did I drink you like alcohol
Push you hard to the limit then destroy it all
Did I treat you like a summer day
Get my kicks, get what I wanted then just fade away
Did I treat you like I knew I should
How could I be so restless with a love so good

Been dry for awhile,
I've been thinking a little clearer
You've been cracking a smile
You've been inching a little nearer
I've been honest with you
I can look in the mirror
And I can trust my love
And you can trust my love

Did I play you like a poker game
Bet the house on the joker and the queen of spades
Did I wreck you like a cannonball
Did I knock down the castle just to watch it fall
Did I drain you like an hourglass
Watch it crumble to the bottom while the time flew past
Did I treat you like I knew I should
How could I be so restless with a love so good

Did I cut you like a kitchen knife
Kill the one thing that mattered to me in my life
If I said that I was better now
Would you open up your heart and try to hear me out
If I really treat you like I should,
Could I be so reckless with a love so good
Never be so reckless with a love so good
