The Heart Keeps a List

I'm thankful for another day, thankful for another night.
My thankfulness, helps me keep sight
of all the things in my life that I'd like to get consistently right.
Like you don't always have to be wound so tight
and you don't always have to go around looking for a fight.

Fights rarely fix anything, you can trust me on this.
You can do more damage with your words than you can with your fist.
Bruises are on the surface, but the heart keeps a list.

Remember when you ripped mine out of my chest?
It was the first time I realized my heart needs a rest.
We gave it a try but your love failed the test.
Its time I get to leaving, we both know that's for the best.

Fights rarely fix anything, you can trust me on this.
You can do more damage with your words than you can with your fist.
Bruises are on the surface, but the heart keeps a list.

So from now on this heart's reserved for my true loved ones and friends.
I'm thankful that today we finally come to an end.
Now that my heart's out of your hands, I can let the healing begin.
Each day I spend without you, I will consider a win.
And as I drive away, you can watch how fast my truck tires spin.
I'm so thankful I'll never have to trust you again.

Fights rarely fix anything, you can trust me on this.
You can do more damage with your words than you can with your fists.
Bruises are on the surface, but the heart keeps a list.
