ladyantebellum



She left town early on a Friday
Headin' down to family in New Orleans
Said she needed to feel the sun on her face
Talk it out with herself
Try to get things straight
Lord all I know is I don't wanna breathe

I wish I was cold as stone
Then I wouldn't feel a thing
Wish I didn't have this heart
Then I wouldn't know the sting of the rain
I could stand strong and still
Watching you walk away
I wouldn't hurt like this
Or feel so all alone
I wish I was cold as stone

Almost turned around in Mississippi
Pulled over on the shoulder along the way
Thought by now, I'd be fine
But all these tears are blurring every line
And I think back to when you were mine

Wish I was cold as stone
Then I wouldn't feel a thing
Wish I didn't have this heart
Then I wouldn't know the sting of the rain
I could stand on my own
Letting your memory fade
I wouldn't hurt like this
Or feel so all alone
I wish I was cold as stone

Yeah, it's gonna take forever to get over you
Oh, and I don't think this pain's gonna go away
Oh, scars left when its said and done remain

I wish I was cold as stone
I wish I was cold as stone

I wish I was cold as stone
Then I wouldn't feel a thing
I wish I didn't have this heart
Then I wouldn't know the sting of the rain
I could stand strong and still
Watching you walk away
I wouldn't hurt like this
Or feel so all alone

I wish I was cold as stone
I wish I was cold as stone
