Straight to Hell

lyrics

The night that I left you, it was dark and it was raining
And you were still sleeping inside
My bare feet on pavement felt like freedom, felt like terror
And I tore through the night like a knife

And you can stop calling my phone
I gave up on you long ago

All I could think was how mad you would be when you woke and I was no longer there
All I could do was keep running from you and breathing in the bitter winter air
In the back of my mind I saw the look in your eyes
And I told myself not to be afraid

Cos I've been waiting for this day for so many years
And now it's finally here

So I run
I'm free, finally
The girl you once knew who was weaker than you and couldn't stand up for herself
She is no longer here, she broke free from her fear, and you can take that with you
Straight to hell.

The day that you found me, half-awake and barely breathing, staring down the barrel of a gun
I'd made up my mind, this was the last time; after this day, I was done
And you can stop saying my name
In your mouth, it doesn't sound the same

I feel sorry for you
You poor, wretched soul
I don't know when, but you lost control

And now you beg me, "Please do not leave."
But love, I've been gone
You just couldn't see

That I've been waiting for this day for so many years
And now it's finally here

So I run
I'm free, finally
Every second I waste is a step toward my grave and I won't go down by myself
So I'm running from you and the girl you once knew and you can take your shit with you
Straight to hell.
