Cowboy Junkies - Five Room Love Story Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I met her in a church on a sunday evening
  • Not late on saturday night
  • She sang ave maria
  • A little flat and out of time
  • But thats what drew me to her
  • So thats alright
  • As she placed a nickle in the basket
  • That I held before her
  • I asked her to be my wife
  • And theres one cardboard heart
  • For every time you said i love you
  • A painted star for every secret that we shared
  • A dried lima bean and small plastic birds
  • Because you cared
  • I hear their talk and I watch them swap
  • Their old black and whites
  • Bitter and beaten
  • They talk of lifes cheatin
  • Like old boxers comparing scars
  • All I remember is a smile at the top of every working morning
  • And a shoulder always willing and able
  • And all those nights that wed spend just sitting
  • And talking around our kitchen table
  • And theres one cardboard heart
  • For every time you said i love you
  • A painted star for every secret that we shared
  • A dried lima bean and small plastic birds
  • Because you cared
  • Five rooms made stronger by the breaking and the healing
  • Of the two hearts they protected within
  • Now one heart left aching
  • Just piecing and painting
  • These walls with the memories of all that is real
  • And theres one cardboard heart
  • For every time you said i love you
  • A painted star for every secret that we shared
  • A dried lima bean and small plastic birds
  • Because you cared
  • And theres one cardboard heart
  • For every time you said i love you
  • A painted star for every secret that we shared
  • A dried lima bean and small plastic birds
  • Because you cared
