about

this is why we don't have nice things

lyrics

Reaching up to feel
an earrings missing
don't search the street
you’re nearly home
you know it's gone
This is why you always
buy the cheap kind
no use lamenting
whats so easily replaced
but picture you rolling in the gutter
soon forgotten and rarely, if ever, missed

see this is why we don't have nice things
you know you're only going to lose them
this is why I'm scared to try
afraid I'm only going to lose

You're prone to getting too comfortable
better to keep you on your toes
before you get to be too much to handle
This is why you ought to stay a stranger
feign allure then slink away to waste
before you get into trouble
try to have some self control

see this is why we don't have nice things
you know you're only going to lose them
this is why I'm scared to try
afraid I'm only going to lose

He gave you such a pretty ring
you swore it'd never leave your finger
no need to show him you were careless
don't let him see the stones broke already
don't let him know he could do better
just glue the pieces back togther
just let him go he could do better

see this is why we don't have nice things
you know you're only going to lose them
this is why I'm scared to try
afraid I'm only going to lose
