Fingers & Thumbs (Cold Summer's Day)
Don't know what you've got till it's gone
A hint of the scent then it's gone
Look at the state of you you're all fingers and thumbs

So who's your latest flame
Driving ' 'em wild in the fast lane
I won't say I told you so, but the boy has no shame

Once when my hands were full
We were double or quits then some
Nothin' at all to show for a love so precious

Gone and blown it all, how can you say
It doesn't matter much to me?
A dumb mistake too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blow it all and then you say
This can't be happening to me
A dumb mistake too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Don't know what you've got till it's gone
The thrill of the chase then it's gone
Only the hurt to prove that it ever went on

And life is a wonderful thing
When you're humming the words to a love song
Do what you wanna do be who you want to be

When I'm in your arms I'm strong
There's nowhere I'd rather be
We shine for liberty, life and the pursuit of pleasure

Gone and blown it all, how can you say
It doesn't matter much to me?
A dumb mistake too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blown it all and then you say
This isn't happening to me
A dumb mistake too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blown it all, how can you say
It doesn't matter much to me?
A dumb mistake too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

How the days have flown too few and fast
They said it wasn't meant to last
A dumb mistake too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

How the days have flown
Said it wouldn't last
Much too much to ask
Your heart is made of glass
Love will save the day
See it blow away
Like a shattered heart
A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blown it all, how can you say
It doesn't matter much to me?
A dumb mistake too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris
