Happy Ever After lyrics

[Backing Vocals:]
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

[Verse 1:]
Shake my bones and rattle my grave
He's gone diggin' in the bitch again
Back tattoo of a big black snake
Don't go telling me she's just a friend

[Pre-Chorus:]
Hey, lil' mama
Who you gonna poison now
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)
Hey, lil' papa
Who you gonna run to now

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time coming
And this house is burning down
Don't know how I ever loved you
I was blind and running into what's in front of me
If I only knew
That happy ever after wasn't you

[Backing Vocals:]
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

[Verse 2:]
Hurt me, hate me, throw me down Fifteen years I gave you me
To lie alone in this redneck town
A better lover did I have to be

[Pre-Chorus:]
And hey, lil' mama
What you gonna break up now
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)
And hey, lil' papa
Who you gonna run to now

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time coming
And this house is burning down
Don't know how I ever loved you
I was blind and running into what's in front of me
And I never knew
That happy ever after wasn't you

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time coming
And this house is burning down
Don't know how I ever loved you
I was blind and running into what's in front of me
If I only knew
That happy ever after wasn't you

(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)
Happy ever after wasn't you
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)
Happy ever after wasn't you
(La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)
Happy ever after wasn't you
