Arithmetic




I ain’t never been huntin’ but with the way I love it should count
They should charge me all the fees and charge me for the hearts that I’ve taken out
I ain’t never used a rifle all I need are the words of my mouth
They burn deeper than a bullet

Her eyes have a shine all the diamonds in the mine don’t come near it
And all the angels on high fly down time to time just to see it
With a love like this anyone in the world would die for it
And I just want to pull the trigger

It’s not my fault that I’m not that strong
You see I’ve been taught to walk away
We can try again try your arithmetic
Tell me what’s the formula for love

I’ve been pluggin’ in numbers but nothing I put in every comes out
With every problem I solve there’s another one seen I never gain any ground
The answer I fear is a number I know you could do without
So tell me truth

I got a song to sing for every little thing I’ve been through
And on a perfect day I’m praying for rain just to hum a sad tune
See when the chips are down there’s only one thing that’s left to do
Walk away
