MELANIE MARTINEZ A THOUSAND WORDS

Lyrics

How can I see when my eyes are closed?
How can you be so far away and already wanna go?
How can we talk when our mouths are closed?
And I want you to know I can't fix what you have broke

Close my eyes and go to sleep, oh
You're the last thing, the last thing that I see

I had a thousand words to say 
You just chose to walk away
And are you happy now you're free, oh
You gave me your heart
And took it back from me
Now I've seen the light of day
Boy, you don't mean shit to me

How can we write when the ink is gone?
Our love's an empty page that you've never written on
How can we be what we used to be?
Was it all just make-believe?
When my heart was on my sleeve

Close my eyes and go to sleep, oh
You're the last thing, the last thing that I see

I had a thousand words to say
You just chose to walk away
And are you happy now you're free, oh
You gave me your heart
And took it back from me
Now I've seen the light of day
Boy, you don't mean shit to me

Our love's a postcard on its way heading towards no destiny
Our love's a postcard on its way heading towards no destiny
Our love's a postcard on its way heading towards no destiny
Our love's a postcard on its way heading towards no destiny

Close my eyes and go to sleep, oh
You're the last thing, the last thing that I see

I had a thousand words to say
You just chose to walk away
And are you happy now you're free, oh
You gave me your heart
And took it back from me
Now I've seen the light of day
Boy, you don't mean shit to me
