all he took away returned to me today
all the painted ponies found their stride

she never knew him and it fused his back
never knew him so she paints a white horse black
never listen to a pretty girl's advice

'cause it all adds up and you can't afford the price
and when it all falls down it's gonna be one hell of a demise

so the breezes blow from seas we'll never know
as the painted ponies take their stride
she set off running and he fades to black
sit and listen to the mothers calling back
noone ever does those chinese whispers right

and it all adds up so you can't afford to buy
and when this sky falls down she's gonna lose that pretty girl disguise

but she loved you
she loved you
did she love you
like I love you?

like I still do
