Would it kill you to breathe?
Is it only 17 miles
Lay between you and me?
I could make it if I had to

I don't break easily
You got my council thick as thieves
If there's a crime we'll keep it secret
For there's only trace amounts left in your blood

You may be a sinner
But you may be justified

Just keep your mouth shut
Keep your guard up
I swear I'll make it right

Will it kill me to breathe?
Not as easy as you think
It is between you and me
I could fake it if I have to

I don't break easily
I need your council thick as thieves
I have no crime to keep a secret
It was hers, it was not mine

Well, I may be a sinner
But it wasn't me this time

Just keep your mouth shut
Keep your guard up
I swear I'll make it right

Well, listen to yourself
There is a hemorrhage in your mouth
It won't stop bleeding

Well, you may be the trigger
I will hold the smoking gun
You'll get away clean
I'll keep your secrets
'Til the grave has swallowed me

And I will never tell a tortured soul
There burning by my side
That I am a sinner
I am a savior, I am a lie

So keep your mouth shut
Keep your guard up
I swear I'll make it right

Songwriters
CARRABBA, CHRISTOPHER ANDREW
