Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Our missing pieces walk between us
When we were moving through the door
You called 'em mine, I called 'em yours
You make me get so angry
And I'd stay there on my own
We both make peace but all alone
Verse 2
Some call it talking blues (talking blues)
Some call it bitter truth
Some call it getting even in a song
Verse 3
I can't read it, didn't mean it
As you would rage how I was wrong
Life is too short, and you'd stay too long
Let's be honest, we were strongest till I let you drag me down
I was sorry then, I'm not now
Verse 4
Some get a golden heart
Some get a riverside
Some get a house that lets the years go by
Verse 5
That life is ending, you seem contented
While the graveside flowers die
I call 'em yours, you call 'em mine
Nothing makes silence like experience
There's a message in my eyes
You'd better love yourself, 'cause I tried
Verse 6
Some call it talking blues (talking blues)
Some call it bitter truth
Some call it getting even in a song
