I was a big bad man
I picked at you like cotton candy
I talked my talk, made you feel lucky
And broke your heart when I was ready
Yeah, I was a big bad man

And I strummed my slow sad song
I felt your lashes flutter for me
I let my smile spread out sneaky
My chesire cat act sped your heartbeat
And I strummed my slow sad song

And I made my train wreck mess
I sunk to hell and I dragged you with me
I grieved my way to coke and whiskey
I shamed my father, I scared my family
When I made my train wreck mess

When you'd sleep you sing my name into your pillow
A blue note cast to calm our burning bed
Your helpless heart dreamt my voice rising up to meet you
And held the plain truth hostage in your head
You see I never raised the ransom
And I never argued over terms
I just let you and your song lie there and burn

And now I think long hard thoughts
About the years I can't return you,
The truth, it took too long to tell you
There’s no excuse for how I did you
When I think my long hard thoughts,
When I think my long hard thoughts
