I drove by your house last night
Only to remind myself what never was
What could have been
But you left me for dead, and I'll tell you something
I hate the way you make it seem like I never meant anything

Sleep well tonight
Sleep well tonight
Cause when your lies catch up to you
You know there's nothing I can do but pull the knife from my back
And give it back to you

You're a mess, and you're alone this time
The world is moving on, and you're what's left behind
And every word I ever wrote and every song
I let them go with you
They're buried deep and gone
So take a breath and hold it deep cause you never meant anything

Sleep well tonight
Sleep well tonight
Cause when your lies catch up to you
You know there's nothing I can do but pull the knife from my back
And give it back to you

And while your eyes are closed
I'll tell everyone, so you're exposed
The bright light creeping through the crack in the door
You can't stop what's next in store

Sleep well tonight
Sleep well tonight
Cause when your lies catch up to you
You know there's nothing I can do but pull the knife from my back
And give it back to you
Sleep well tonight
Sleep well tonight
Cause when your lies catch up to you
You know there's nothing I can do but pull the knife from my back
And give it back to you
