I couldn't hear everything you said.
But you had a way of getting in my head.
I didn't think that you would leave him
but I hoped you'd come with me.
Drop everything, pack your bags, and leave with me.
But you knew you were in love when you met me.
Yeah, you know you wouldn't leave him from the start.
But you thought that maybe I would forget you.
Yeah, you thought that I'd forget but you were wrong.
I still remember every word you said
about the stars and how they're too far away.
Well it was like you spoke in tongues
you had the holiest of lungs.
And when we talked, there was no doubt,
we were in love.
But I knew you were in love when I met you.
Yeah, I knew you wouldn't leave him from the start.
But I thought that maybe I would forget you.
Yeah, I thought that I'd move on but I was wrong.
And now you're breaking my heart and you're shaking my bones.
Living so far, I was out here alone.
Looking at me when you're thinking 'bout him.
Looking so mean when you're out there with him.
But you knew you wouldn't come with me
'cause you said you're only seventeen.
But you lit me up so I could see
how you doused it up in kerosene.
