"Thank You For the Broken Heart" by J. Rice Lyrics

Bombshell

Words spoken from his lips,
garbled in disbelief,
her heart sinking to the floor
as this bombshell explodes.

Lost in the confusion,
bewildered by his actions,
tears streaming down her cheeks,
the words “I love you”
still ringing in her ears,
remembering those tender hugs and kisses
before he left for work.

His actions displaying a loving couple,
leaving no insight
for this shocking revelation,
a fate, she does not deserve,
killing her inner being
leaving her in complete and utter loss.
