  • Long hours in a few dying flowers but you never seem to stick around
    How could you let something so good, go to waste and bleed the colors out?
    You don't know what you got 'til it's gone
    Know when it's right 'til it's wrong
    In search of perfect when you had it with you all along
    You broke your heart down with ease
    Now I'm picking up every piece
    You must be so hard to please

    I wish I could say
    "Thank you for all the mistakes"
    "Thank you for all of the pain"
    I guess somebody else's loss is another's gain
    I'm saying thank you to the one who let her get away
    Away

    She gave you love but it wasn't enough
    You had your mind set out on other things
    Can't sleep at night, now you're paying the price
    You let another come and take your place
    You don't know what you got 'til it's gone
    Know when it's right 'til it's wrong
    In search of perfect when you had it with you all along
    You broke your heart down with ease
    Now I'm picking up every piece
    You must be so hard to please

    I wish I could say
    "Thank you for all the mistakes"
    "Thank you for all of the pain"
    I guess somebody else's loss is another's gain
    I'm saying thank you to the one who let her get away
    Away

    Thank you to the one who caused her heart to break
    I'm thanking you for giving me a soul to save
    Thank you to the one who let her get away

    You know, I wish I could say
    "Thank you for all the mistakes"
    "Thank you for all of the pain"
    I guess somebody else's loss is another's
    Oh, I wish I could say
    "Thank you for all the mistakes"
    "Thank you for all of the pain"
    I guess somebody else's loss is another's gain
    I'm saying thank you to the one who let her get away
