Perfect Day (To Break My Heart)

I really do love the way you try to cut me gently
And I really do love the way your eyes say "I'm sorry"
As you rip my heart out of my chest
I can see you're really tryin' your best
Not to break me
You don't wanna break me
But there's no way around it
I'm tellin' you right now
It'd be easier if you'd just go on and do it

Chorus:
You can try and try to do it with grace but
There's never gonna be a painless way
You might as well rip it off like a Band-Aid
Never gonna be a clean break 'cause you've already made your mark
And there's never gonna be a perfect day to break my heart

I really do love the way you hesitate before leaving
And I really do love the way you try to stop the bleeding
Try to stitch up my wounds
The wounds I only have because of you
Because you don't want me
And you don't love me
But there's no way around it
I'm tellin' you right now
It'd be easier if you'd just go on and do it

You can try and try to do it with grace but
There's never gonna be a painless way
You might as well rip it off like a Band-Aid
Never gonna be a clean break 'cause you've already made your mark
And there's never gonna be a perfect day to break my heart

Bridge:
You can try and try to do it real slow
You can try and try to make the pain go, away
You can try and try to put it off
You can try and try to wait
But there's never gonna be a perfect day
You've left your mark
And there's never gonna be a perfect day to break my heart

You can try and try to do it with grace but
There's never gonna be a painless way
You might as well rip it off like a Band-Aid
Never gonna be a clean break 'cause you've already made your mark
And there's never gonna be a perfect day to break my heart

You can try and try to do it with grace but
There's never gonna be a perfect day to break my heart
