lyrics

If all it took was a word, you would have talked about it
until the backs of the stars got tired hearing bout it
You only said you were sorry when it came to you easy
We could almost hear you over all your mistakes

If all it took was a good cry, you'd have drowned us in it
Got you in some Noah's Ark til all the dying finished
You always knew the way out was looking like you meant it
We could almost believe you oh when we were asleep

And in the dark, you should know we made a promise we
would never hurt you for your lies 
But in our hearts, you should know sometimes secretly
we all think maybe we should try
So I hope you sleep well
Goodnight

If all it took was a prayer, you would have played us with it
Led your sheep to the slaughter while you asked forgiveness
You always said you're a good man, you had “good intentions”
We could almost see them on the backs of your hands

In the dark you should know we made a promise we
would never hurt you for your lies 
But in our hearts, you should know sometimes secretly
we all think maybe we should try
So I hope you sleep well
Goodnight

In the dark you should know we made a promise we
would never hurt you for your lies 
But in our hearts, you should know sometimes secretly
we all think maybe we should try

It would be so easy
to take the low road, the only one you know so
it would be so easy
leave you blindsided, everybody high fiving
everybody’d finally sleep tight
Goodnight
