If I Killed Someone For You

Alec Benjamin


I'm sorry that I did this, the blood is on my hands
I stare at my reflection, I don't know who I am
Practice my confession in case I take the stand
I'll say I learned my lesson, I'll be a better man
I'm packing up my things and I'm wiping down the walls
I'm rinsing off my clothes and I'm walking through the halls
I did it all for her, so I felt nothing at all
I don't know what she'll say, so I'll ask her when she calls

Would you love me more
If I killed someone for you?
Would you hold my hand?
They're the same ones that I used
When I killed someone for you

Would you turn me in
When they say I'm on the loose?
Would you hide me when
My face is on the news?
'Cause I killed someone for you

I hear the sirens coming, I see the flashing lights
I'm driving through the suburbs wearing my disguise
I show up at her door step to look her in the eyes
I tell her that it's me, but she doesn't recognize
Can't you see I'm running? Said I need a place to hide
I've gotta ask you something: Could you please let me inside?
Just let me explain, no, I wouldn't tell you lies
I know you'll understand if you let me stay the night

Would you love me more
If I killed someone for you?
Would you hold my hand?
They're the same ones that I used
When I killed someone for you

Would you turn me in
When they say I'm on the loose?
Would you hide me when
My face is on the news?
'Cause I killed someone for you

You have to understand that the one I killed is me
Changing what I was for what you wanted me to be
I followed your direction, did everything you asked
I hope it makes you happy 'cause there's just no turning back

Would you love me more
If I killed someone for you?
Would you hold my hand?
They're the same ones that I used
When I killed someone for you

Would you turn me in
When they say I'm on the loose?
Would you hide me when
My face is on the news?
'Cause I killed someone for you
