The Afters – Thank God I'm Not The One lyrics

How could You walk
When You went down that dusty street
How could You speak
When all your friends checked out
How could You love
After the great betrayal
How could You reach out
When they nailed You down

True as true can be
That's what they say You are to me
When I'm so fake
Does Your heart ache
If I had been the one
I would not have been that strong
If I had been the one, yeah
I'd have been long gone

How could you hang on
Withyour mama crying
How could You keep on breathing in and out
How could You watch
While Your whole world was dying
Did it all happen
Cause we let You down


And all the things we think of as eternal
Would come undone
All I have to say is when I'm praying
Is Thank God I'm not the One
