Bad Idea

@ 2012 Craig Carothers/Phillip Coleman

I was just nowhere near /
your neighborhood
I know I shouldn’t be here /
but the car thought I should

I could see that your lights /
were still on
But the silhouettes told me /
you weren’t alone
I thought about ringing the bell...
bad idea

I dialed your number last week /
again and again
But you’ll never here it ring once /
if I don’t hit “send”

They made a movie of that book /
that we read
We’d see it together /
that’s what we always said
We don’t have to call it a date...
OK, bad idea

CHORUS
I keep thinkin’ that I’ll figure out /
what to do
Find a way to make everything right
That we’ll get back together /
or I’ll get over you
But it feels like I’m losing’ both fights
(But they both seem so far off tonight)

My sister’s friends with a girl /
she thought I should meet
She said “it’s time to get on with /
your life” and I had to agree
So we met for dinner and/
it went pretty well
It could’ve gone somewhere /
I could tell
But I started talkin’ about you...
bad idea

(REPEAT CHORUS)

I was just nowhere near /
your neighborhood
I know I shouldn’t be here /
that’s understood
But so much has happened /
to me since that day
When I broke your heart /
’cause I walked away
And I need you to hear me say /
it was a bad idea
Yeah, I need you to hear me say /
it was a bad idea
it was a bad idea,
it was a bad idea
