Lyrics

You are like a ransom note
If I give in will you come home?
I put everything I had
Into getting you back
I was only seventeen
And you were the air I breathe
I walked across a burning bridge
For you, for you

Those roads we walked I'll know forever
Those times we talked I still remember
Is it not enough that I
Paid with my heart once or twice
If I'm blind to who you are
Which of us was behind bars?
Oh, we were the price I paid
(We are, we are) The ransom
(The ransom, oh)

I tried to find a way to justify
Missing the signs I knew
My hands were tied the moment we met
And there was more to you
You were only seventeen
And I was your sick release
A hostage on a silver plate
To you, to you

Those roads we walked I'll know forever
Those times we talked I still remember
Is it not enough that I
Paid with my heart once or twice
If I'm blind to who you are
Which of us was behind bars?
Is it not enough that I
Barely got out with my life
I still carry every scar
The ransom
(The ransom)
(I still carry every scar)

Those roads we walked (we walked)
Those times we talked (we talked)
