If God Could Talk

If God could talk
Would He tell you to come back to me
If God could talk
Would He tell you it's alright
Just leave
And don't look back
At all the memories
The best of times
The mess you made of me
Walk on
If you think it's gonna make you strong

Why don't you runaway
And find yourself a life
Go on and turn the page
Before your lonely world collides
What's it gonna take
To break the silence that's been
Tearing you apart

If God could talk
Would He part the ocean
Straight to you
Make mountains move
And crumble at your feet to get you through
Another day another night alone
Stepping out into the great unknown
Tonight even God knows baby that ain't right

Why don't you run away
And find yourself alive
Go on and turn the page
Before your lonely world collides
What's it gonna take
To break the silence that's been
Tearing you apart
If only God could talk

Did you swear to yourself
On the day it was over
That you'd never turn around
And get locked up in another cage
Did you tear all the pictures
Of us living life together
Did you burn all the memories
That we made in a fit of rage

Why don't you run away
And find yourself alive
Go on and turn the page
Before your lonely world collides
What's it gonna take
To break the silence that's been
Tearing you apart
If only God could talk
Would you listen now
If God could talk?
