Lyrics
An empty house
Is the only thing standin'
Between our lives
And the speed of sound

Some words flew out
And made a crash landin'
No love survived
Not a trace could be found

[Chorus:]
I broke your heart
With the back of my mind
From the tip of my tongue
To the end of the line

I walked away
And you stood there tremblin'
Like a leaf
In the autumn chill

Now this house won't say no
What I'm still rememberin'
Three angry words
And a love that they killed

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
You couldn't say how much it hurt you
And I couldn't see the damage I'd done
Till I watched the greatest love I've known
All come down to a slip of the tongue

Well, I'd take it back
But time won't let me
No, time just takes
You further away

I watched you pack
A house full of memories
Where did you go
Lord, what did I say?

[Chorus]
