about

An original Griddle Pickers tune, advising on the

lyrics

Fool me once or a hundred times
In my heart, it’s all the same
Star-crossed lovers or just repeat offenders?
Maybe a habit’s to blame.

Cause old friends aren’t always the best,
But old lovers are the worst
A ticket’s not the winner
Just because you bought it first.
Not every bottle of wine
Tastes sweeter over time,
So maybe it’s best to lose those ties
And get on with your life.

When winning fights and being right
Becomes a priority,
There’s little to gain from that sort of pain,
Except a false sense of security.

Cause old friends aren’t always the best,
But old lovers are the worst
A ticket’s not the winner
Just because you bought it first.
Not every bottle of wine
Tastes sweeter over time,
So maybe it’s best to lose those ties
And get on with your life.

You feel trepidation
When the train leaves the station
Going towards bigger and brighter things.
Don’t go on attack or
Try to call it back,
No peace for you will that bring.

Cause old friends aren’t always the best,
But old lovers are the worst
A ticket’s not the winner
Just because you bought it first.
Not every bottle of wine
Tastes sweeter over time,
So maybe it’s best to lose those ties
And get on with your life.
And, get on with your life.
