lyrics

I tried to call you on your cell phone
I’m tired of wonderin' when you’re gonna come home
Been sittin' ‘round here drinking
I been down here thinkin' you’re slipping away from me
Lord knows where you are!
If you’re tryin' to break my heart
You’re doin' fine so far

You went out early in the evenin'
In that low-cut dress that I bought you
There must be somebody you’re seein'
Must be a reason why you’ve never thought to
Try it on for me.
I take it as a sign
If you’re tryin' to break my heart
You’re doin' fine so far

Don’t you wanna throw some dishes?
Wouldn’t you rather smash my things?
Give me somethin' I can work with
‘Stead of hangin’ on your string
You could spend my hard-earned money
Turn and slap me ‘cross my face
Slam the door clear off it’s hinges
Drive my car into the bay
Oh no, but if you’re tryin' to break my heart,
You’re doin' fine so far

Don't you wanna throw some dishes?
Wouldn’t you rather smash my things?
Give me somethin' I might work with
Tired of hangin’ on your string.
You can take my hard-earned money
Turn and slap me ‘cross my face
Slam the door clear off it’s hinges
Drive my car into the bay
Oh, but if you’re tryin' to break my heart,
You’re doin' fine so far.
You’re doin' fine so far.
