Don't say
That you'll stay
Cause I know
That you'll go
I know it's hard
For you
To be true
Yeah I know you… Won't stay

Such a dreadful
Human being
I couldn't believe
What I was seeing
You crashed the car
In my head
And on you went
To whatever was next
For god's sake stay… Away

I swear to god
I cross my heart
I'm feeling better 
Now that we're apart
The debt is paid
The devil too
I'd rather die
A lonesome fool
Than to be with you… It’s true
That bastard wrecked my car
That bastard won't get far
