  • I shouldn't a' let you in, what was I thinking?
    Drowning out the voice of reason

    Cause I been in this place before
    I was feeling vulnerable
    I just had to get through the season

    He was wearing a welcoming smile
    I was right on the edge of this mile
    Yes, it feels so right…

    But how's it gonna be tonight?
    Red light, green light
    They're just colors in the night
    And how can I still feel slighted, baby
    When you were never mine, you were never mine
    You were never mine

    We all got our habits, we all got our list of regrets
    We all got things to forget in this world
    Do I have to live with this, like it's something indigenous? Underlying religious

    You shined your light on me
    It felt so right to me
    But tell me baby, baby

    How's it gonna be tonight?
    Red light, green light
    They're just colors in the night
    And how can I still feel slighted, baby
    When you were never mine, you were never mine
    You were never mine

    You shined baby, you shined bright
    But are you gonna get here tonight?
    You shined baby, you shined bright
    But you were never mine, you were never mine, you were never mine
