Time Machine

Album: Lights Out (2014)
  • You lit the fire
    Then drank the water
    You slammed that door
    And left me standing all alone

    We wrote the story
    We turned the pages
    You changed the end
    Like everybody said you would

    I should've seen it coming
    It should've sent me running
    That's what I get for loving you
    If I had a time machine
    And if life was a movie scene
    I'd rewind and I'd tell me
    Run
    And we were never meant to be
    So if I had a time machine
    I'd go back and I'd tell me
    Run
    Run

    I got your letters
    I got your words
    I stacked them high
    And lit them all and let 'em burn

    Your broken stories
    Don't mean a thing
    You made that bed
    Good luck falling back asleep

    I should've seen it coming
    It should've sent me running
    That's what I get for loving you
    If I had a time machine
    And if life was a movie scene
    I'd rewind and I'd tell me
    Run
    And we were never meant to be
    So if I had a time machine
    I'd go back and I'd tell me
    Run
    Run

    Oh, your love, it got me higher
    Then it drove me up the wall
    But the higher up you go
    The further you will fall

    Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, run

    If I had a time machine
    And if life was a movie scene
    I'd rewind and I'd tell me
    Run
    And we were never meant to be
    So if I had a time machine
    I'd go back and I'd tell me
    Run

    If I had a time machine
    And if life was a movie scene
    I'd rewind and I'd tell me
    Run
    And we were never meant to be
    So if I had a time machine
    I'd go back and I'd tell me
    Run
