Lyrics Edit

I go back to Alabama
Take a look at my life
What the fuck happened here?
I guess what they meant when
They payed the price
I go back to Alabama
Take a look at my life
Where are the trailer parks?
And where all the Christmas lights?

I had a boyfriend
He came from this town
We used to pretend we were married and start again
He read the Bible
Showed me what Jesus said
He said only read the red

I want Jesus to take me out this life baby
And I talk to Jesus
And ask him if he'll think of saving me
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

I go back to Alabama
Take a look at my life
Nothing looks familiar here
No one even left that I like
I go back to Alabama
Take a look at my life
I was so much happier when
I was gonna be your wife

We had a deal and
I fucked up when
I made the decision to become someone
We had the one thing that no one ever had
True love
It's true love

I ask Jesus to take me out this life baby
And I talk to Jesus
And ask him if he'll think of saving me
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

I never meant to hurt you baby
It's so hard to be true
In this world where everything's so black and blue
I never meant to hurt you darling
It's so hard to be good
In this world where you do what you know you shouldn’t

I want Jesus to take me out this life baby
And I talk to Jesus
And ask him if he'll think of saving me
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
