lyrics

You were a gift from above, that's what I thought
That we'd be together and that's how we'd stay
Then a man of God came to address the faithful
He said, "The word of the Lord orders throw that boy away"

It cut me in half - empty bottles on the ground
It cut me in half - full bottles can be found

I don't know if God himself gives marching orders
Or why he would want to replace one with two
Maybe your parents gave that prophet a special donation
Whatever the case, there's nothing I can do

It cut me in half - empty bottles on the ground
It cut me in half - full bottles can be found

I heard you're engaged to that boy from our old town
I guess it's true God smiles on those in his favor
You can buy flowers or candy, you can write a song
But how can I argue with orders from the savior?

It cut me in half - empty bottles on the ground
It cut me in half - full bottles can be found
It cut me in half - empty bottles on the ground
It cut me in half - full bottles can be found

Some say it's all in how you look at the cup
But I say empty it and fill it up
But I say empty it and fill it up
