Chorus

You know you should have run,

You should have left,

You shouldn't have put up

With his sick theft

Verse 1

Of the little big joys that you deserved.

That cruel old tyrant had some nerve

To treat you the way that he did.

You just let his injustice breed.

Chorus

I think you should have run,

You should have left,

You shouldn't have put up

With the huge cleft

Verse 2

That he left in your loving heart and soul.

How do you smile despite that hole?

How do you act so unbroken?

Why is your sorrow unspoken?

Bridge

Well, you should have screamed, should have fought.

I wish I could tell him, "thanks a lot,

For the other woman in your life,

Thanks for letting her beat up your wife.

Thanks for all the nights she cried.

Look at me today, I'm terrified.

That I'll end up like her if I don't run

Far away from The One."

(Instrumental)

Chorus

You know you should have run,

You should have left,

You shouldn't have put up

With how he slept

Outro

With the other woman in his life,

The one who would beat up his wife.

Thanks for all the nights I've cried.

Look at me today, I'm terrified.

That I'll end up like you if I don't run

Far away from The One.

Will I end up like you if I don't run

Far away from The One?
