lyrics

I cannot shake the thought
We’d be better off
If it never even happened

Still I am filled
With the same reaction
Why did it happen?
Why did it happen?
It almost didn’t happen, oh

I was just a kid when it all went down
I didn’t even know my own name
I know it’s no excuse, I don’t need one anyway

I wonder where you are in this big world
Do you think about it all the time?
No matter what you said I’d assume that it would be a lie

Yeah, it feels kind of weird
That we would not be here
If it hadn’t ever happened

Still I am filled
With the same reaction
Why did it happen?
Why did it happen?
It almost didn’t happen, oh

I wonder where you are on this big Earth
Lying in your car or on the dirt
Waiting for the day you can say it doesn’t even hurt

Truly I’d testify
That I would not survive
If it hadn’t ever happened

Still I am filled
With the same reaction
Wondering why did it happen

I’d testify
That I would not survive
If it hadn’t ever happened

Still I am filled
With the same reaction
Why did it happen?
Why did it happen?
Why did it happen?
