LYRICS

I saw you running around with her this summer, her honey blonde hair billowing around her face. I should have known you were a playa, boy. You’re laughing and hugging and I want to cry.

What about the sweet memories of you and I? I guess none of that matters now. You made your choice.

But now it’s my turn to play this game. Threw me away as if I was trash, and now I’m about to get you back.

What if I shattered your dreams? What if I let you rot in the snow? What if I left you to die in the cold? What if I let you go? What if I did?

You make me so miserable and you flirt with me again, Acting as if nothing ever happened. Holding me close and telling me lies I’ve heard a thousand times, you just tore me apart. Yes, you did.

But now it’s my turn to play this game. You threw me away as if I was trash, and now I’m about to get you back.

What if I shattered your dreams? What if I let you rot in the snow? What if I left you to die in the cold? What if I let you go? What if I did?

Walking around without a thought in your head. Kiss me hello before you hug her to bed. I thought I knew the true you. Do you really still love me? I thought you said you’d never leave me.

What if I shattered your dreams? What if I let you rot in the snow? What if I left you to die in the cold, all alone? What if I let you go? What if I…
