Lyrics

Studio version

Well, I didn't know it would come to this
But that's what happens when you're on your own
And you're all right with letting nice things go

Well, I pawned the earrings that you gave me
Gold and made of flowers dangling
And I almost cried as I sold them all
And I don't mind living on bread and oranges, no no
But I gotta get to and from where I come
And it's gonna take money to go
Oh no, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

In the name of higher consciousness
I let the best man I knew go
'Cause it's nice to love and be loved
But it's better to know all you can know
I said it's nice to love and be loved
But I'd rather know what God knows
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no

I can't do this once more
No man can keep me together
Been broken since I was born

Well, I didn't know it would come to this
But that's what happens when you're on your own
And you're all right with letting nice things go

Well, I didn't know it would come to this
But that's what happens when you're on your own
And you're all right with letting nice things go

Well, I pawned the earrings that you gave me
Gold and made of flowers dangling
And I almost cried as I sold them all
And I don't mind living on bread and oranges, oh, oh
But I gotta get to and from where I come
And it's gonna take money to go
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

In the name of higher consciousness
I let the best man I know go
'Cause it's nice to love and be loved
But it's better to know all you can know
Yeah, it's nice to love and be loved
But I'd rather know what God knows
Oh no, oh no, oh no, no, no no, oh

Well, I didn't know it would come to this
But that's what happens when you're on your own
And you're all right with letting nice things go
