How long's a tear take to dry
When a woman has no breeze?
How long's a tear take to dry
When a woman's, when a woman's on her knees?

How long's a tear take to dry
When a woman hasn't sinned?
How long's a tear take to dry
When the weather, when the weather brings no wind?

Look, I'm sorry that I hurt you
You look a million dollars and a dime
Time's the greatest healer
But love's the greatest stealer of all time

I'm so sorry, make it plural
My heart's broken, mine's the same
I still love you, make it plural
You're so sweet
The flowers smell sweeter, the closer you are to the grave
The flowers smell sweeter, the closer you are to the grave

How long's a tear take to dry
When almighty brings his rain?
How long's a tear take to dry?
And do tears, and do tears really stain?

This heart was like a [Incomprehensible]
I went and lost the key in a fight
I've never found a locksmith
Will you be my locksmith tonight?
Will I [Incomprehensible]

I'm so sorry, make it plural
My heart's broken, mine's the same
I still love you, make it plural
You're so sweet
The flowers smell sweeter, the closer you are to the grave
The flowers smell sweeter, the closer you are to the grave

How long does sorry really last
Is it tattooed upon your heart? Ahh ha
Or is it hung in a museum
With your Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa ex-ass art?

I have no summer, I'll buy you summer
I'll buy July, if December makes you cry
A little or no trace face belies a lie of many days gone by
A little or no trace face belies a lie of many days gone by
