When I spoke what was on my mind
I wasn't thinking of your heart
I wasn't thinking when I said those things
That landed us so far apart

How my world is ending
With a chance remark
You can't take love for granted

And you look at me with your wounded eyes
And I look back with fear
There used to be such faith between us
Now its just not here

And the door was slammed hours ago
But its still ringing in my ears
You can't take love for granted

It was a funny way to show, I love you
Funny way to care
It's a funny thing to be without you
As empty as your stare

You can't take love for granted
It's got its own free will
It's got a mind of its own when it wants one
And looks that can kill

One day you're in Heaven, darlin'
The next you feel like hell
You can't take love for granted

You can speak what's on your mind
If you've got a gamblers heart
You can be the truth incarnate
You can shoot straight in the dark

You can pull the moon down, baby
With a lasso made of stars
But you can't take love for granted, no
You can't take love for granted, no
You can't take love
