"You cant hate some one whose dead" Kerosene by Miranda Lambert

I run with all my might
They're shot is amiss
I now know I'm out of their line of sight
Next to me the tree and the shot kiss

Death holds my hand
My life he will take
In the other world I will land
I pray for my sisters sake

I keep moving even now
I know no matter where i go they'll hunt me down
To them Ill never bow
But when I go to hell I wont have a frown

Inside I know I will die
I know it is me they want to kill
In the depths of hell i will fry
So the demons get they're fill

A gaping hole appears
He rises the background aflame
The sight of him awakens all my fears
Realizing this my cheeks are red with shame

I start to panic
At me he sneers
My every move is frantic
I refuse to let him see my tears

I am frozen in place
His touch is like acid
He laughs in my face
My heart beat is rapid

He devours my soul
Wishing I could do something
Then he leaves me empty and unwhole
Ans i can do nothing.....
