Lyrics

Don’t let me be the one to break the bad news
Honey I’m not good at putting these things into words
Don’t let me be the one to tell you
That the bad things will become what the good things were
Yeah the bad things will be what the good things were

I know it sounds strange but I liked to wake up alone
Until the first night you shared my pillow
I’d wash the dishes and you would wash all the clothes
I always had these dreams about building our home

So don’t let this ship go down unattended
We bailed out once when we lost sight of the shore
Don’t let this ship go down unattended, baby please
I’ll hang around see it gets to the ocean floor

Your sweaters are gone and I’ve disconnected the phone
There’s no need to answer it anymore
Been a year since light moved through the windows
But I still recall when we danced across the floor

This old house is filled with the dust of an ancient love
That sparkled bright once before it’s time was up

But don’t let this ship go down unattended
We bailed out once when we lost sight of the shore
Don’t let this ship go down unattended baby please
I’ll hang around see it gets to the ocean floor

And don’t cry for me as I disappear into the wind
Just remember that some things can’t start till other things end
Yeah the good things can’t start until the bad things end
Oh baby the good things can’t start until the bad things end

Well I see you’re still wearing my raincoat
In the pictures that your friends post
