Loving you was like road tripping in a hearse
Every character we played so goddamn well-rehearsed
And each warning sign we drove by
Made me cling a little tighter to your curse

Meeting you felt like an answer to my prayers
I was every lonely girl at once, and every hungry stare
And I decided early on
There was no sin I wouldn't bear to be with you

Loving you was like stealing the keys to heaven
An endless heavy emptiness that I could believe in
When every other word became my one good reason
You didn't need to mean it

But leaving you felt like a car wreck in slow motion
An exercise in carelessness and sweet devotion
The life that flashed before my eyes
Was doused in poison
But I still think you enjoyed it

Your love was like being black-out drunk in Vegas
Like waking up to empty pockets on cold pavement
I'm not sure how I got here but I'm glad I made it
Yeah, I'm glad I made it
