I’m left here alone
With this hole in my heart that just keeps growin’
She took every single little thing with her that she owns
And left me with only parting words

Parting words can’t wrap their arms around me
And make a sea of love for a home
Parting words won’t keep my heart from hurting
While you sail away with all the light I’ve ever known
But I deserve
Parting words

I was a fool and I was careless,
She was a fool to see anything in me
When I had her love I was fearless,
But my hard livin’ took my lovin’ one away

Parting words can’t wrap their arms around me
And make a sea of love for a home
Parting words won’t keep my heart from hurting
While you sail away with all the light I’ve ever known
But I deserve
Parting words

Parting words can’t wrap their arms around me
And make a sea of love for a home
Parting words won’t keep my heart from hurting
While you sail away with all the light I’ve ever known
But I deserve
Parting words
