I started a fire in the house I built
Poured gasoline all on the ground
With one little match, I lit a whole pack
I’m so sorry that we were burned down
You promised me diamonds, you swore to me pearls
You fed me thin wafers of hope
You gave me a ring, claiming to be king
But when it came to love, you were broke
So, I poisoned the well, and I’d do it again
It’s too evident to pretend
The water we drank ran foul and it stank
Here’s one final toast, my old friend
For what once was golden has tarnished, it’s rotted
I pawned it for a red cent
Then I found a man proud to stick to his plan
’Twas the best heartache ever spent
