If you would′ve blinked, then I would’ve
Looked away at the first glance
If you tasted poison, you could′ve

Spit me out at the first chance
If I was some paint, did it splatter
On a promising grown man
And if I was a child, did it matter
If you got to wash your hands

Oh, all I used to do was pray
Would’ve, could’ve, should′ve
If you′d never looked my way

I would’ve stayed
On my knees
And I damn sure never would′ve danced with the devil
At nineteen, and the god’s honest truth is that the pain was heaven
And now that I′m grown
I’m scared of ghosts
Memories feel like weapons
And now that I know
I wish you′d left me wondering

If you never touched me, I would’ve
Gone along with the righteous
If I never blushed then they could’ve
Never whispered about this
And if you never saved me from boredom
I could′ve gone on as I was
But lord, you made me feel important
And then you tried to erase us

Oh, you′re a crisis of my faith
Would’ve, could′ve, should’ve
If I′d only played it safe

I would’ve stayed on my knees
And I damn sure never would′ve danced with the devil
At nineteen, and the god’s honest truth is that the pain was heaven
And now that I’m grown
I′m scared of ghosts
Memories feel like weapons
And now that I know
I wish you′d left me wondering

God rest my soul
I miss who I used to be
The tomb won’t close
Stained glass windows in my mind
I regret you all the time
Can′t let this go
I fight with you in my sleep
The wound won’t close
I keep on waiting for a sign
I regret you all the time

If clarity′s in death, then why won’t this die?
Years of tearing down our banners
You and I
Living for the thrill of hitting you where it hurts
Give me back my girlhood
It was mine first

And I damn sure never would′ve danced with the devil
At nineteen, and the god’s honest truth is that the pain was heaven
And now that I’m grown
I′m scared of ghosts
Memories feel like weapons
And now that I know
I wish you′d left me wondering

God rest my soul
I miss who I used to be
The tomb won’t close
Stained glass windows in my mind
I regret you all the time
I can′t let this go
I fight with you in my sleep
The wound won’t close
I keep on waiting for a sign
I regret you all the time

Oh, god rest my soul
I miss who I used to be
The tomb won′t close
Stained-glass windows in my mind
I regret you all the time
I can’t let this go
I fight with you in my sleep
The wound won′t close
I keep on waiting for a sign
I regret you all the time
