  • Hey girl with the empty eyes
    Open up, you know you look prettier when you smile
    Look around, it's a decent life
    You feel too much, pick up your feet and make use of your time

    They sure know how to talk up a storm
    Rain down on your petty parade
    Trying to find the cure
    Bask in your distress a little bit more
    'Cause a sad face don't go away that easy

    Healing and patience are lovers
    Don't place the blame on your heart, just to shut 'em up
    There ain't a rush to recover
    'Cause it's easier said, it's easier said than
    Healing and patience are lovers
    Don't place the blame on your heart, just to make 'em stop
    Just take your time to recover
    'Cause it's easier said, it's easier said than done

    Hey boy, with the painted frown
    Listen up, shake off the cloud that follows you around
    Think fast, change your mood and be approachable
    Man up, crawl your way up off the ground

    They sure know how to talk up a storm
    Rain down on your petty parade
    Thinking they found the cure
    Bask in your distress a little bit more
    'Cause a sad face don't go away that easy, no

    Healing and patience are lovers
    Don't place the blame on your heart, just to shut 'em up
    There ain't a rush to recover
    'Cause it's easier said, it's easier said than
    Healing and patience are lovers
    Don't place the blame on your heart, just to make 'em stop
    Just take your time to recover
    'Cause it's easier said, it's easier said than done

    So what if you're a bit bitter before you reach us
    I mean, I spend my days complaining to a guitar
    Remember everyone is coping with their own scars
    And just a little bit of time can get you so far, yeah

    Healing and patience are lovers
    Don't place the blame on your heart, just to shut 'em up (No, no, no)
    There ain't a rush to recover
    'Cause it's easier said, it's easier said than
    Healing and patience are lovers (Healing and patience are lovers)
    Don't place the blame on your heart, just to make 'em stop (Make 'em stop)
    Just take your time to recover (No, no)
    'Cause it's easier said, it's easier said than done

    Done, done, done, done, done
    Done, done, done
    Done, done, done, done (It's easier said, it's easier said than done)
    Done, done, done
    Done, done, done, done, done
    Done, done, done
    Done, done, done, done (It's easier said, it's easier said than done)
    Done, done, done Writer/s: Alessia Caracciolo, Andrew Wansel, Trevor Brown, Warren Felder, William Simmons
