  • I thought of angels
    Choking on their halos
    Get them drunk on rose water
    See how dirty I can get them
    Pulling out their fragile teeth
    And clip their tiny wings

    Anything you say can and will be held against you
    So only say my name
    It will be held against you

    Anything you say can and will be held against you
    So only say my name

    If heaven's grief brings hell's rain
    Then I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
    (I know I'm bad news)
    For just one yesterday
    (I saved it all for you)
    I want to teach you a lesson in the worst kind of way
    Still I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
    (I know I'm bad news)
    For just one yesterday
    (I saved it all for you)
    For just one yesterday

    Letting people down is my thing baby
    Find yourself a new gig
    This town ain't big enough for two of us
    I don't have the right name
    Or the right looks
    But I have twice the heart

    Anything you say can and will be held against you
    So only say my name
    It will be held against you

    Anything you say can and will be held against you
    So only say my name (name)

    If heaven's grief brings hell's rain
    Then I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
    (I know I'm bad news)
    For just one yesterday
    (I saved it all for you)
    I want to teach you a lesson in the worst kind of way
    Still I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
    (I know I'm bad news)
    For just one yesterday
    (I saved it all for you)
    For just one yesterday

    If I spilled my guts
    The world would never look at you the same way
    And I'm here to give you all of my love
    So I can watch your face as I take it all away

    If heaven's grief brings hell's rain
    Then I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
    (I know I'm bad news)
    For just one yesterday
    (I saved it all for you)
    I want to teach you a lesson in the worst kind of way
    Still I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
    (I know I'm bad news)
    For just one yesterday
    (I saved it all for you)
