Every Word Was A Piece Of My Heart Lyrics

I’ve been staring at the page
For what seems like days
I guess I put this one off for a while
Did I see a tear fall from your eyes
Or did you laugh so hard that you cried
When I served my secrets on a silver tray to you
Hey now, I guess the night’s just bringing me down

There’s no love, there’s no hate
I left them there for you to take
But know that every word was a piece of my heart

You’ve been the blood in my veins
The only one who knows my middle name
And the smiles that came easy ‘cause of you
You know that I love you, but I hate you
‘Cause I know I can never escape you
So let the choir sing for tonight I’m an easy mark
Hey now, am I acting just a little too proud

There’s no love, there’s no hate
I left them there for you to take
But know that every word was a piece of my heart
Have I said too much
Maybe I haven’t said enough
But know that every word was a piece of my heart

Hush me darling, maybe I’ve lost my touch
Maybe I’ve lost my guts - there, is that truth enough
Hey now, hey now
You know these love letters mix with whisky
Just don’t light a match when you kiss me
Though I’ll blow away, you know I’ll be back soon
Hey now, hey now, hey now, am I talking
Just a little too loud

There’s no love, there’s no hate
I left them there for you to take
But know that every word was a piece of my heart
Have I said too much
Maybe I haven’t said enough
But know that every word was a piece of my heart

Hey now, am I talking just a little too proud
Hey now, the night’s just bringing me down

I saw an interview where Jon said this was actually written to his bandmates at a point where they were wanting to do some work separately but yet not break up as a band. It sounds like a traditional love song though. Interesting take on things.
