lyrics

I whispered your name
It flickered like fire
So I lit a match and prayed you'd come back to me

You tasted my pain
Came back for seconds
I feel you're something that I always wanted to be

Well wouldn't you know
I was lonely soul
And I swear that this won't happen again
Not again
No this won't happen again

I swallowed my pain
And chased it with whiskey
I tried to escape from the horrible place I see

I shared with my group
That I tried to kill me
They sent me away like a shirt with a stain on its sleeve

And wouldn't you know, darling
I was a broken soul
And I swear that this won't happen again
Not again
No this won't happen again

I slipped on a page
Torn from the Scripture
It told me that I shouldn't give up on trying to be

You told me you prayed
And knew it was working
But I could've sworn that my God would have scorn for me

Well wouldn't you know
I was a broke down soul
And I swear, Mom this won't happen again
Not again
No this won't happen
