lyrics

It takes five years to build a white picket fence
And another two to make sure it holds
Against all odds and the tired fights and the doubts
And the fear of getting old

You never thought that bird could fly
But there she goes, she’s on her way
And now you’re left here wondering why
You thought you were doing the leaving
And now you’re doing the grieving

It takes five years to realize its over
And another two to actually go
And more time still to get over it
To wake up alone and feel whole

You never thought that bird could fly
But there she goes, she’s on her way
And now you’re left here wondering why
You thought you were doing the leaving
And now you’re doing the grieving

When you look right through someone long enough
You won’t see them disappear
And do you think you’ll feel when they’re gone
That they were never here

You never though that bird could fly
But there she goes, she’s on her way
And now you’re left here wondering why
But while you were doing the cheating
She was doing the leaving
And now you’re doing the grieving
