Been a long time comin' and the cards were stacked
It's been a long hard road to hell and back
Your love meant trouble from the day we met
You won every hand, I lost every bet

Now you'd think that I should've known better
Now I think that I, I would've seen it come
My heart sank when I read that letter
Sank like a stone, it sank like a stone

A cup of cold coffee, yesterday's mail
A bad love like this is always bound to fail
Your love meant trouble from the day we met
If you want your things, they're on the front step

An' now you'd think that I should've known better
Now I think that I should've seen it come
My heart sank when I read that letter
It sank like a stone, it sank like a stone

All alone in my kitchen, all alone in my head
Somethings you can't take back, once they've been said
I don't know what this love is for
All I know is I don't want it anymore

Now you'd think that I should've known better
I should've seen it come
My heart sank when I read that letter
It sank like a stone, it sank like a stone
