I couldn't escape the suspicion
Ambition was all overblown
As I stood in the ruins of my kingdom undone
Honey, you were the heir to my throne

Remember we met in your office
Makes sense now that we never worked
You perfectly dressed, and my shit a mess
I think your boss called me a jerk

But everyone's broken in some way
We all got a crack that we hide
And maybe my problem is talking too much
But I just can't keep it inside

And I've got nothing left to hide

In those days we were quite the item
I look back and say 'what a ride'
But it came apart when you guarded your heart
And darling I know that you tried

'Course everyone's broken in some way
We all got a memory to hide
And when I hear a voice that sings in my key
Then I let that voice be my guide

'Cause I got nothing left to hide

Love is like breaking and entering
You always leave something behind
And I get the feeling what I left was nothing
That you have a need for or mind

But everyone's broken in some way
Like lions in search of our pride
After all that's gone wrong I carry along

'Cause I got nothing left to hide
