"If (Jeannie's Song)" as written by and Butch Walker....
All alone in your dirty chair
Washin' all your dirty hair
Wonderin' how long till they come for you

Watch the lines form on your face
Down the block all the people chase
Just what you were after before this happened to you

And if I could be the chains, I'd fall from you
And let you fly to the angels
And if I could be your pain, I'd run from you so far away
And if I could turn the time back just one day
Would it be enough to say
All the things I never said to you

Make the plans to fall in place
Only to fall behind in the race
And you can't keep up and I know that it pisses you off

And your roller coaster climbs the hill
Up and down, it sure does feel
A bit too much, are you ready to get off?

And if I could be the chains, I'd fall from you
And let you fly like an angels
And if I could be your pain, I'd run from you so far away
And if I could turn the time back just one day
Would it be enough to say
All the things I never said to you

What you don't know won't hurt you
What you don't show will kill you
What you don't know won't hurt you
What you don't show will kill you

What you don't know won't hurt you
What you don't show will kill you
What you don't know won't hurt you
And I

And if I could be the chains, I'd fall from you
And let you fly like an angels
And if I could be your pain, I'd run from you so far away
And if I could turn the time back just one day
Would it be enough to say
All the things I never said to you

What you don't know won't hurt you
What you don't show will kill you
What you don't know won't hurt you
What you don't show will kill you

What you don't know won't hurt you
What you don't show will kill you
What you don't know won't hurt you
What you don't show will kill you
