Imagine Dragons – Curse lyrics

She barely knew your name
He was just a city
She's just a dirt road
But that never meant a thing

Running from the country
She needed out but,
He held that diamond ring.

Cause I can't sit
Oh I can't talk
I gotta leave this town
And run to you

Curse these nights
That speak your name
I gotta leave this town
And come to you

Break ~oh~
This ~oh~
Curse ~oh~

Ha Ha Ha

Break ~oh~
This ~oh~
Curse ~oh~

She barely knew your name

He was such a worry
No need to hurry
Those streets are slick at night
She would never listen
She left it all
And headed towards the light

Oh, your eyes look tired
But love was all she knew
Screaming out in agony
She gave her life for you

Cause I can't sit
Oh, I can't talk
I gotta leave this town
And run to you
Curse these nights
That speak your name
I gotta leave this town
And come to you

Break ~oh~
This ~oh~
Curse ~oh~

Ha Ha Ha

Break ~oh~
This ~oh~
Curse ~oh~

She barely knew your name

(Chorus)

Cause I can't say it
Oh, I can't talk
I gotta leave this town
And run to you
Curse these nights
That speak your name
I gotta leave this town
And run to you

Break ~oh~
This ~oh~
Curse ~oh~

She barely knew your name

    It's about a girl (Dirt Road) and a boy (City) falling in love, even though they barley knew each other. The girl loved him, but she was engaged to marry someone else, (Country.) Late one night, the girl fled so she wouldn't have to be with the man she didn't love. The one she did love didn't want her to go, but she went anyway. She was exhausted but she kept on driving during a night rainstorm. She lost control of the car and was killed in a crash. She gave her life for the one she loved, so he wouldn't have to suffer everyday, thinking about her and how she was with someone that she didn't truly love. He learned that she had died and didn't want to live anymore. He wanted to 'come to her' by joining her in heaven/afterlife/whatever you believe in. He called it a curse, because the one he truly loved had died and left him.
