Long hours in a few dying flowers but you never seem to stick around
How could you let something so good, go to waste and bleed the colors out?
You don't know what you got 'til it's gone
Know when it's right 'til it's wrong
In search of perfect when you had it with you all along
You broke your heart down with ease
Now I'm picking up every piece
You must be so hard to please

I wish I could say
"Thank you for all the mistakes"
"Thank you for all of the pain"
I guess somebody else's loss is another's gain
I'm saying thank you to the one who let her get away
Away

She gave you love but it wasn't enough
You had your mind set out on other things
Can't sleep at night, now you're paying the price
You let another come and take your place
You don't know what you got 'til it's gone
Know when it's right 'til it's wrong
In search of perfect when you had it with you all along
You broke your heart down with ease
Now I'm picking up every piece
You must be so hard to please

I wish I could say
"Thank you for all the mistakes"
"Thank you for all of the pain"
I guess somebody else's loss is another's gain
I'm saying thank you to the one who let her get away
Away

Thank you to the one who caused her heart to break
I'm thanking you for giving me a soul to save
Thank you to the one who let her get away

You know, I wish I could say
"Thank you for all the mistakes"
"Thank you for all of the pain"
I guess somebody else's loss is another's
Oh, I wish I could say
"Thank you for all the mistakes"
"Thank you for all of the pain"
I guess somebody else's loss is another's gain
I'm saying thank you to the one who let her get away
Away
