13 Reasons

from A Good Wife by Tommy Wiggins

/

lyrics

13 reasons you should go
first one we already know
all the hearts we’ve broken, oh
just one of 13 reasons

two would be forever more
the breaking of the bonds we swore
dashed upon love’s rocky shore
not altogether pleasin’

13 reasons on and on
like verses in a sad old song
once you sing can’t be undone
13 reasons one by one

houses where they bolt the doors
are precious reasons three and four
declaration of love’s gone war
they’re there to underscore

13 reasons on and on
like verses in a sad old song
once they’re sung can’t be undone
13 reasons one by one

passion fuels the flames of blue
makin’ fools out of me and you
there ain’t no need to list them all
let’s stop at 13 reasons

so we best be on our separate ways
hopin’ and prayin’ for some better days
we gotta mend those fences one by one
each morning ‘till the setting sun

13 reasons on and on
like verses in the saddest song
once they’re sung can’t be undone

13 reasons you and I
will pay the price until we die
to all the hearts that we denied
way more than 13 reasons
more than 13 reasons
more than 13 reasons

13 reasons you should go
