lyrics

When we first met, I'll never forget
How the promise in your eyes shined like diamonds in the sky
Tell me what you want, and I'll ask you why
You can have it all if it makes you cry
You say pretty things for a pretty girl
That you would give me the whole damn world
Take me to the fast lane to give it a try
While everybody else is just waiting to die

21, chewing on my bubble gum, Momma says I've gone astray, but honey, I'll write home to say

Carry my words through your bones
'Cause they're the only piece of me that you could ever own
And even if they hurt, the world is still gonna turn
And maybe this time my heart won't burn
But now I'm leaving home

I was your pretty little girl in bubble gum dress
Clinging to your arm and tryna not act too impressed
With the gold you got me dripping in, the wine you've got me sipping in
The castle that you built for two, Now what's a girl to do
And when you came home, eyes of stone
I was sitting on your throne, looking at the mess I made
Gazes locked, gun cocked, pointed to my head
Running from the bed and out the door I said

Carry my words through your bones
'Cause they're the only piece of me that you could ever own
And even if they hurt, the world is still gonna turn
And maybe this time my heart won't burn
But now I'm leaving home

Speeding through the night with the top down
Stop round turtle creek falling on the hot ground
Reaching for the cellphone
Call home, hear the empty ring tone
Desperate for your voice to say

Carry my words through your bones
'Cause they're the only piece of me that you could ever own
And even if they hurt, the world is still gonna turn
And maybe this time my heart won't burn
But now I'm leaving home
