(Verse)
He put the coffee in the cup and with milk he filled it up
He added sugar and I never knew he liked it like that

(Verse)
He took his coat from the hook and his scarf and his hat
And he put down a key and said I won’t be needing that
And he turned and smiled and said that explained it all
And he walked down the hall and he opened the door
And said I’ll call, I’ll call

(Chorus)
Why do I bring you love
When all you give me back is pain
Why do we search it out
To watch you wash your hands and walk away

(Verse)
Now there’s a black black black bird in my chest
All the flatter all changed in
Wanting to break free with the wolves in my head
You’re tearing every words that I should have said

(Chorus)
Why do I bring you love
When all you give me back is pain
Why do we search it out
To watch you wash your hands and walk away

(Bridge)
We’re like the strangers we were
When we first met
But the pain in strangers had the end
And all that remains is a day without plans
The loneliness and the forever lost

(Chorus) x2
Why do I bring you love
When all you give me back is pain
Why do we search it out
To watch you wash your hands and walk away
