Counting – Song Lyrics

Standard

Verse One
One true love and I thought that you were mine
Two sides to every story but you were at her shrine
Three in the bed and I was the one pushed out
Four times I saw you with her to make me doubt
Twenty years old when I let myself get caught
A lifetime of misery in the lessons I was taught
Fourteen diamonds in the ring that kept me chained
Too many stories I believed when you explained

Bridge
I can’t count, just want to forget
All the times I cried
I can’t count, just want to forget
All the times you lied

Chorus
You said it’d just be us forever
But forever came and went
Now I’m counting broken promises

You said it wouldn’t be her ever
But she was heaven sent
And I’m still counting

Verse Two
Five nights in a row that you were all but gone
Six years and our child to cement the perfect con
Seven mortal sins and you embraced them all
Eight love letters to her in your lazy scrawl
A dozen red roses sent to her every week
A million words I didn’t want to hear when you decided to speak
A billion men – what did I do to deserve you?
Not one damn good reason for what you put me through

Bridge
I can’t count, just want to forget
All the times I cried
I can’t count, just want to forget
All the times you lied

Chorus
You said it’d just be us forever
But forever came and went
Now I’m counting broken promises

You said it wouldn’t be her ever
But she was heaven sent
And I’m still counting

Coda
There’s so many simple numbers
But still I’m losing track
So many silver linings
But all my clouds are black
So many times, counting the times
As I watched you pack
So many lies, counting the lies
I won’t ever let you back

Chorus
You said it’d just be us forever
But forever came and went
Now I’m counting broken promises

You said it wouldn’t be her ever
But she was heaven sent
And I’m still counting
