lyrics

This can't last for long, the dragging me along
Just make the deal or I'm gone, I'm gone
You play for profit, still haven't had your fill
So you say that they were wrong, all wrong

Every day I hoped and prayed you'd make your way to my way

I'm lost out in the round, in my wedding gown
Just like a song, but how long, how long
Must I wait for this? A comet or a kiss?
All the while they laugh and you smile

All this time I thought that I could lead you back across the line

I'm gonna try to get myself away from this mess
No, they would never have known if you had never confessed
I'll be the best, I'll be your debt
And I will be the girl you wish that you had never met
While you fight to bring your stories to life
Oh, I am gonna sleep so easy tonight

All this time I thought that I could lead you back across the line
