If I Ever Leave This World Alive – Flogging Molly

If I ever leave this world alive I’ll thank you for all the things you did in my life. If I ever leave this world alive I’ll come back down and sit beside your feet tonight. Wherever I am you’ll always be more than just a memory. If I ever leave this world alive. If I ever leave this world alive, I’ll take on all the sadness that I left behind. If I ever leave this world alive, the madness that you feel will soon subside. So in a word don’t shed a tear. I’ll be here when it all gets weird. If I ever leave this world alive. So when in doubt just call my name, just before you go insane, if I ever leave this world. Hey I may never leave this world. But if I ever leave this world alive. She says I’m okay; I’m alright, though you have gone from my life. You said that it would, now everything should be all right. She says I’m okay; I’m alright, though you have gone from my life. You said that it would, now everything should be all right. Yeah should be alright.

 

Would it kill you to breathe easy / Only 17 miles lay between you and me / I could make it if I had to / I don’t break easily / You’ve got my counsel, thick as thieves / If there’s a crime we’ll keep it secret / For there’s only trace amounts left in your blood / You may be a sinner / But you may be justified // Just keep your mouth shut / Keep your guard up / I swear I’ll make it right //Will it kill me to breathe / Not as easy as you think it is between you and me /I could fake it if I have to / I don’t break easily / I need your counsel, thick as thieves / I have no crime to keep a secret / It was hers, it was not mine // Well I may be a sinner / But it wasn’t me this time // Just keep your mouth shut / Keep your guard up / I swear I’ll make it right // Listen to yourself / There is a hemorrhage in your mouth / It won’t stop bleeding / Well you may be the traitor / I will hold the smoking gun / You’ll get away clean / I’ll keep your secrets til the grave has swallowed me / And I will never tell a tortured soul they are burning by my side / That I am a sinner / I am a savior / I am a lie // So keep your mouth shut / Keep your guard up / I swear I’ll make it right

 

 

The best thing about tonight’s that we’re not fighting / Could it be that we have been this way before / I know you don’t think that I am trying / I know you’re wearing thin down to the core / But hold your breath // Because tonight will be the night that I will fall for you / Over again / Don’t make me change my mind / Or I wont live to see another day / I swear it’s true / Because a girl like you is impossible to find / You’re impossible to find // This is not what I intended / I always swore to you I’d never fall apart / You always thought that I was stronger / I may have failed / But I have loved you from the start / But hold your breath / Because tonight will be the night that I will fall for you / Over again / Don’t make me change my mind / Or I wont live to see another day / I swear it’s true / Because a girl like you is impossible to find / It’s impossible // So breathe in so deep / Breathe me in / I’m yours to keep / And hold onto your words / Cause talk is cheap / And remember me tonight / When your asleep // Because tonight will be the night that I will fall for you / Over again / Don’t make me change my mind / Or I wont live to see another day / I swear it’s true / Because a girl like you is impossible to find // Tonight will be the night that I will fall for you / Over again / Don’t make me change my mind / Or I wont live to see another day / I swear it’s true / Because a girl like you is impossible to find / You’re impossible to find

 

I never knew / I never knew that everything was falling through / That everyone I knew was waiting on a cue / To turn and run when all I needed was the truth / But that’s how it’s got to be / It’s coming down to nothing more than apathy / I’d rather run the other way than stay and see / The smoke and who’s still standing when it clears // Everyone knows I’m in / Over my head / Over my head / With eight seconds left in overtime / She’s on your mind / She’s on your mind // Let’s rearrange / I wish you were a stranger I could disengage / Just say that we agree and then never change / Soften a bit until we all just get along / But that’s disregard / Find another friend and you discard / As you lose the argument in a cable car / Hanging above as the canyon comes between / Everyone knows I’m in / Over my head / Over my head / With eight seconds left in overtime / She’s on your mind / She’s on your mind / Everyone knows I’m in / Over my head / Over my head / With eight seconds left in overtime / She’s on your mind / She’s on your … / And suddenly I become a part of your past / I’m becoming the part that don’t last / I’m losing you and its effortless / Without a sound we lose sight of the ground / In the throw around / Never thought that you wanted to bring it down / I won’t let it go down till we torch it ourselves / And everyone knows I’m in / Over my head / Over my head / With eight seconds left in overtime / She’s on your mind / She’s on your mind / Everyone knows / She’s on your mind / Everyone knows I’m in over my head / I’m in over my head / I’m over my… / Everyone knows I’m in / Over my head / Over my head / With eight seconds left in overtime / She’s on your mind / She’s on your mind

 

Oh, he treats me with respect, he says he loves me all the time / He calls me fifteen times a day, he likes to make sure that I’m fine / You know I’ve never met a man who’s made me feel quite so secure / He’s not like all them other boys, they’re all so dumb and immature / There’s just one thing that’s getting in the way / When we go up to bed, you’re just no good, it’s such a shame / I look into your eyes, I want to get to know you / And then you make this noise and it’s apparent it’s all over / It’s not fair and I think you’re really mean / I think you’re really mean, I think you’re really mean / Oh, you’re suppose to care / But you never make me scream, you never make me scream / Oh, it’s not fair and it’s really not okay / It’s really not okay, it’s really not okay / Oh, you’re supposed to care / But all you do is take, yeah, all you do is take / Oh, I lie here in the wet patch in the middle of the bed / I’m feeling pretty damn hard done by, I spent ages giving head / Then I remember all the nice things that you ever said to me / Maybe I’m just overreacting, maybe you’re the one for me / There’s just one thing that’s getting in the way / When we go up to bed, you’re just no good, it’s such a shame / I look into your eyes, I want to get to know you / And then you make this noise and it’s apparent it’s all over / It’s not fair and I think you’re really mean / I think you’re really mean, I think you’re really mean / Oh, you’re supposed to care / But you never make me scream, you never make me scream / Oh, it’s not fair and it’s really not okay / It’s really not okay, it’s really not okay / Oh, you’re supposed to care / But all you do is take, yeah, all you do is take / There’s just one thing that’s getting in the way / When we go up to bed, you’re just no good, it’s such a shame / I look into your eyes, I want to get to know you / And then you make this noise and it’s apparent it’s all over / It’s not fair and I think you’re really mean / I think you’re really mean, I think you’re really mean / Oh, you’re supposed to care / But you never make me scream, you never make me scream / Oh, it’s not fair and it’s really not okay / It’s really not okay, it’s really not okay / Oh, you’re supposed to care / But all you do is take, yeah, all you do is take
