  • At first you gotta learn how not to listen
    When she opens up her heart
    You try your best to make it all about you
    Yeah, that's the easy part
    Take all your promises and break 'em
    Stay out late and come home high
    By this time you're on your way
    It's going to be over any day
    And if you really try, you won't have to wonder why

    Take it from a man who knows
    Just how to break a heart
    Listen hard and listen close
    I got it down to an art
    Keep on thinkin' she won't leave
    You know the writing on the wall
    That's how you lose it all

    Let the walls fall down around you
    Let the bills and dishes stack up to the sky
    Makes friends with regret
    Try your damnedest to forget
    And I bet you never will, no I swear you never will

    Take it from a man who knows
    Just how to break a heart
    Listen hard and listen close
    I got it down to an art
    Keep on thinkin' she won't leave
    You know the writing on the wall
    That's how you lose it all, yeah

    Take it from a man who knows
    Just how to break a heart
    Listen hard and listen close
    I got it down to an art
    Keep on thinkin' she won't leave
    You know the writing on the wall
    That's how you lose it all

    You lose it all
    Take all your promises and break them
