Lyrics

Verse 1

When I first saw your smile I knew that I’d love you forever

We walked down the aisle dreaming of being together

We talked about houses and kids two or three

A dog and two cats, a real family

When you said forever, I thought it’d be longer than this

 

Verse 2

Well how ‘bout the kids

I guess I’m the one who should keep them

When they say where’s Dad

I’m not really sure what I’ll tell them

You’ll have weekends and Christmas and days in between

Oh my heart can’t handle this shattering dream

As your packing your bags tell me it’s really not true

 

Chorus:

You’ve been talking a dream but livin’ a lie

There aren’t too many things on which you can rely except

Taxes and heartache and saying goodbye in the end

When it all boils down to what’s two and two

It just don’t add up when I’m talkin’ to you

If we’re gonna break up I hope we’ll do it as friends

 

Instrumental:

 

Bridge

Now we’re breaking our home up and our egos too

Oh I’ll never love someone as deeply as you

This pain in my heart will never ever subside

 

Chorus:

You’ve been talking a dream but livin’ a lie

There aren’t too many things on which you can rely except

Taxes and heartache and saying goodbye in the end

When it all boils down to what’s two and two

It just don’t add up when I’m talkin’ to you

If we’re gonna break up I hope we can do it

Oh please let us do it, Lord how can we do it

If we’re gonna break up

We’ll never make it as friends
