Every loving couple, needs a place to keep the things
That have made such a big difference in their lives
The bible from their wedding, a letter or a ring
That pretty shell left stranded by the tide

The poems and the pictures of the pets and of the kids
Of the loved ones who they've lost along the way
And if the house burned to the ground tonight, God forbid
Next to you, they're the first things that I'd save
But lately I've been seeing'little signs
And when I opened up our treasure box, I nearly lost my mind

'Cos your heart's not in it, and I don't know where it's gone
Last time that I looked in here it was beatin' strong
With the memories and hopes and dreams and keepsakes that we share
But when I looked inside our velvet-lined treasure box of love
It wasn't there
Your heart's not in it

There's a car out in the driveway with a stranger at the wheel
And a suitcase full of clothes I've seen her wear
And I'm starin' at the tail lights and I don't know how I feel
And it kills me just to think she doesn't care

I walk back to the bedroom and I open up a drawer
To the place where all your perfume used to be
And I'm lost in a familiar, that isn't anymore
I can feel the darkness closing in on me
There isn't very much you left behind
But that treasure box means nothing, when I open it to find

That your heart's not in it, and I don't know where you've gone
Just yesterday I looked in here and we were goin' strong
We had memories and hopes and dreams and keepsakes that we shared
But now I look inside our velvet-lined treasure box of love
And your not there
Your heart's not in it
Your heart's not in it anymore
