lyrics

Boy if I leave ya
Good being with ya
But I just watch out for my heart

Got sick of waiting
Anticipating
and I just think we two should part

If I told you once, I told you a thousand times
Seems you're not with me when you're near
My heart can only wait for so long
So I put on a smile and that old emerald cut and forget about you, dear

There's nothing left of your old magic
Oh, how your words have lost their charms
There was a time they used to haunt me
but forever and always is, oh, such a long time when I don't want you here


You good for nothing
you're wanting something
but I can read between those words
Love made me sightless
but now I'm heartless
just basing things off what I heard

If I told you once, I told you a thousand times
Seems you're not with me when you're near
My heart can only wait for so long
So I put on a smile and that old emerald cut and forget about you, here

You good for nothing
still wanting something
I said I'd watch out for my heart

You didn't mean it
I should've seen it
Just leave me that old emerald cut
