If today weren't just like any day perhaps I'd try
To she'd this worn out skin so thick and learn to fly
But I came home to face your ice and steel
If looks could kill I would be gone today
There's a fire that's burning in your eyes not in your heart
I can fan the fames but I can't make a spark
I don't like the way I make you feel
If looks could kill I would be long since gone
If looks could kill then I'd be pushing up your daisies
If looks could kill then I would not be going crazy
There's a stool that I've been glued to for so many nights
And a bar to pour my heart out to and make it right
And I don't have to tell myself it's real
If looks could kill my heart would beat no more
If looks could kill then I'd be deep in peaceful slumber
If looks could kill then I would not be going under
There's a gun out in the hallway covered up in dust
That works well enough to turn a heartache into dust
Go on and let your lawyer make a deal
If looks could kill
If looks could kill
I would be long since gone
