Can we leave?
Can we get out of this dump?
Thirty miles to Galveston
Thirty miles and then it's done

And I believed
That we had what it would take
But the best lake plans can fail
And the surest levees break
And make just mud

Remember us?
Remember what we use to love?
Your laughter kept us warm
And we always had enough
And don't you see?
How we choose our destiny?
You're not a victim, not to me
Perception is reality

But if you wanna leave
Maybe you should get up and go
If you're gonna leave
Maybe you should be alone
Go ahead and go
Go ahead and go
But know, I was right

And now you're free
Out there on that slippery slope
All the rope you'll never need
But who laughs at your jokes?
You call me
Couldn't find a better man
It's not so comforting
When no one holds your hand

But if you wanna give up
Maybe you should get up and go
If you're gonna leave
Maybe you should be alone
Go ahead and go
Go ahead and go
But know, I was right

Woah!

Oh, no
But if you wanna give up
Maybe you should get up and go
If you're gonna leave
Maybe you should be alone
Go ahead and go
Go ahead and go
But know, I was right
I was right

Hate to say this
Hate to be this way
I hate it, but it's honest

Hate to say this
Hate to be this way
I hate it, but it's honest

And you only want
What you can't have
And it's not love
If you can't stand

I'm right! I'm right, I'm right, I'm right,
I'm right, I'm right, I'm right, I'm right!

I'm right! I'm right, I'm right, I'm right,
I'm right, I'm right, I'm right, I'm right!

I'm right! I'm right, I'm right, I'm right,
I'm right, I'm right, I'm right, I'm right!

But if you wanna give up
Maybe you should get up and go
If you're gonna leave
Maybe you should be alone
Go ahead and go
Go ahead and go
But know, I was right
