I let my heart fall into careless hands

Careless hands broke my heart in two

You held my dreams like worthless grains of sand

Careless hands don't care when dreams slip through

I brought you joy

And girl I loved you so

But all that sunshine didn't make the roses grow

If you don't change

Someday you'll know the sorrow of careless hands

That can't hold onto love

 

I let my heart fall into careless hands

Careless hands broke my heart in two

You held my dreams like worthless grains of sand

Careless hands don't care when dreams slip through

I brought you joy

And dear I loved you so

But all that sunshine didn't make the roses grow

If you don't change

Someday you'll know the sorrow of careless hands

That can't hold onto love

Careless hands that can't hold onto love

Talking 'bout those hands

That can't hold onto love

Talking 'bout those hands

That can't hold onto love

 

I let my heart fall into careless hands,

Careless hands broke my heart in two,

You held my dreams like worthless dreams
