You had a good thing for a while.
Hell, you'd even been believing.
You let go for just a moment.
Then you turn and he was leaving.
You never know what you got till it's gone.
Well we only get so far till the light shifts and we're in it.
And we see us for what we are,
what we have and what's our limit.
We might take the long way home,
and a long look in the mirror,
but we never know what we've got till it's gone.
All these broken, broken things,
tattered tissue-paper wings,
all the hope that loving brings
just flies away.
Once your love had sent me reeling -
pin the flowers in my hair.
Now my heart is set on healing
all the things that need repair.
I always knew this was love.
I always knew it wouldn't last long.
I always knew what I had,
now it's gone.
