Lyrics

You say you're leaving
But don't know why
I'm the same as other guys
You've been mistreated
Or so you think
At least that's what you told your shrink

Looks like you're ready to go
From here on, you're running the show
Okay

You took your chances
I'll take mine too
There's not much more that we can do
So get your family
And tell them I
Was not enough to make you sigh

Looks like you're ready to go
From here on, you're running the show
Okay

A sunny morning
All by myself
It's better for my mental health
I didn't need you
I did not care
I only wanted someone there

Looks like you're ready to go
From here on, you're running the show
It's okay
