Could of had a chance to get out of this mess
The time that you came and the day that you left
Could of had a chance
Could of had a chance
Never thought I could make it this far
With a pain in my soul and a hole in my heart
Never thought I could
Never thought I could
Chorus:
But when the lights are turnin' round
The wheels are flowing on the ground
The day I burned this whole place down
When the circus comes to town
Carved your name out on that tree
Scratched mine out right in front of me
Didn't mean that much
Didn't mean that much
Chorus:
Carved your name out on that tree
Scratched mine out right in front of me
Didn't mean that much
Didn't mean that much
Chorus:
