lyrics

i could have sworn i killed a man last night
he was in the cross walk but i had the green light
the painted lines were on the far side of the hill
by the time i saw him it was too late

but i felt no impact
saw no body in the rear view
so i kept on driving
what i’m really trying to tell you
is i don’t believe the the things that happen really happen

what if i’m right?
could i squeeze a little truth into my lies?
if i gained control
would it make you come back home?

i’m hearing voices when i close my eyes
and feel the room around me shifting as it’s changing size
each night i fall into the arms of a woman
she is singing me to sleep

but i wake alone
in a single room apartment
i turn off the television
what i’m really trying to tell you
is i don’t believe the things that happen really happen

what if i’m right?
could i squeeze a little truth into my lies?
if i gained control
would it make you come back home?

i could have sworn i made it home last night
i’d had a couple drinks, but figured i could walk alright
saw the lights on at my place across the street
i thought i’d fall asleep to the sound of traffic passing by

but then i stumble forward
and the headlights come upon me
i’m off the windshield
bleeding out onto the concrete
what i’m really trying to tell you
is i don’t believe the things that happen really happen

what if i’m right?
could i squeeze a little air back into the lungs to give me life?
if i gained control
i would stand back up and run to you,
and call whatever ground you stand on home
