The memory, it hits you
The loss of him still hurts you
He's forgotten all about you
Your address has got a line through

But postcards, photos, left-behind clothes
They stay with you wherever you go

A few years on from that scene
She looks like her, she must be
He felt a sweet reaction
A taste of honey for all that could be

Gingham, paisley, all that she wore
She still haunts like she did before

Sad love
The unspoken, heartbroken, gift tokens
You're hoping there's still a place in his heart
Where you belonged

What's the saddest love of all?
The one you never had or you can't recall
The one that you made up
Or the one that gives you nothing at all
All your weak ghosts, tied up your name
But you can hide in the flames in the rain

Sad love
The tear-stained, migraines, your sweet pain
You're praying you both feel the same
When you're awake

When you break up
But you don't wanna
And when you see him
And you still remember
The rainbow in the gutter
The blood upon the butter
When he split town without you
And he took his red pajamas

And home is with the hammer
And you'll hide it well forever

Sad love

She lives in a time of her own
She lives in the things that she owned
She lives in a dream you're in
She lives with something

Sad love
