Vigilante justice doesn’t seem to cover it
I heard you spent a while paying for someone else’s sins
And I know that we all reap what we sow
But don’t I wish to be the reaper again
You said that courage isn’t a badge or a bullet
I think that you’re the bravest soul I know
And I’m still angry when I think about sex and love
I wish I’d met you a year ago

It’s better to walk away from a fight but if I had the chance I would do it right I’d put a knife in his back and never look back

It was the first and the last time you talked to an officer
Squeezed the trigger and the man on top of her
And I know that you regret that day but if skin could talk I know what mine would say
My palms would be grateful my knees would weep for the knowledge that something could make them weak
I know you’re thinking that I couldn’t possibly know
I wish I’d met you a year ago

It’s better to not think about those nights but if I didn’t I don’t think I could see the light and I don’t think I’d be standing next to you if that was something I couldn’t do
But I meant every word and every move and we met at the exact right time that we were supposed to
