Lyrics:
you might as well confess, just get it off your chest
I know that red dress you like to wear
I know where you've been, I know how this ends
I don't know why I still pretend to care
I could have made you stay, I let you drift away
you just wanted me to say I loved you only
you came to me that night, the thunder and the light
I didn't want to fight but you provoked me
and you left me there alone
like you did the time before
we betray the ones we love
for those we love a little more
I heard you take the car, you won't have to go far
to find out who you are without the ring
I never told you lies, I held you when you cried
but it's true I never felt a thing
and the sky is turning grey as I watch you fade away
waiting for the day you disappear
and if you don't return it's none of my concern
the world turns but I stay here
and now everything is lost
to a few sparks in the wind
as I watch our house burn down
I pray for rain again
go on now, don't you worry about me
I'm hurt but I'm still strong
go on now, do what you have to
just go on now dear
run along
you say no one is to blame, I wish I felt the same
your love only came in little flashes
we always were a mess, and though I did my best
all that I have left now are the ashes
and you left me there alone
like you did the time before
we betray the ones we love
for those we love a little more
and now everything is lost
to a few sparks in the wind
as I watch our house burn down
I pray for rain again
