lyrics

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

They always say “Let sleeping dogs lie”,
But you were so good at making me cry
Adored you so much I came back for more
Words cut like a double-edged sword
Half-hearted love at your core

Let sleeping dogs lie, did it ever occur to you
Let sleeping dogs lie, that some things take two
Let sleeping dogs lie, guess you never really knew
Let sleeping dogs lie, or at least pretended to

Anything goes when luck knocks on your door
You were so quick to push me aside
Yet worshipped me when you were poor
Half-hearted love at your core

Let sleeping dogs lie, did it ever occur to you
Let sleeping dogs lie, that some things take two
Let sleeping dogs lie, guess you never really knew
Let sleeping dogs lie, or at least pretended to

I was so good at saying goodbye
Adored you so much I’d never come back for more
Words cut like a double-edged sword
Whole-hearted love at my core

Let sleeping dogs lie, did it ever occur to you
Let sleeping dogs lie, that some things take two
Let sleeping dogs lie, guess you never really knew
Let sleeping dogs lie, or at least pretended to
