never heard it straight from you
i heard you done me wrong
why am i the last to find out just what's going on?

don't wanna know all your secrets
just tell me one thing true
just tell me what i meant
and what i mean to you

and now i just walk away
and leave you standin' there
it's not that i don't love you
and it's not that i don't care

and now i look over the rooftops
of the houses in my new town
a hundred years to build up
and seconds to fall down
fall down

tell me the road of my life
paved with bricks of gold
a hundred miles of walking
and hundred miles to go

everything looks like a nail
with a hammer in your hand
built this stupid crooked house
upon the shifting sand

and now i just walk away
and leave you standing there
it's not that i don't love you
and it's not that i don't care

and now i look over the rooftops
of the houses in my new town
a hundred years to build up
and seconds to fall down
fall down
