lyrics

Before you go runnin’ away, don’t forget to pay the plastic man
For all of your loans and attachments
Remember to happily wave to the grim cavalcades
Who long predicted your exit

And don’t you mind me, this smile that you see
Is just one of bemused detachment
As you go on your way, I’ll clasp my hands and pray
That when someone speaks, you might listen
Not just attack it

The cherry trees rain down their petals in the city’s middle of May
And it’s just as well
‘Cause they gave your departure a romance that sealed the deal
And now you’re gone for real or so you tell

But I hesitate to take you at your word,
It’s never done a lick of good before
So if you come crawlin’ back, smoking cloves and dressed in black,
Don’t expect me to let you in
right in through my door.

Every time you talk at me
In condescending elegies
As if i was the one out of control
Your reproach falls empty by
The piles of lies stacked 12 feet high
Don’t act like i’m the one who let the bad times roll

‘Cause everyone’s got their problems
And god knows you’ve become one of mine
But one thing before you go
It’s selfish to say but won’t you go
Go far, far away
There’s one thing for sure i know

Being so far from home, you’ll feel so all alone
No one to beat up, no one to touch you
And maybe, just maybe then
The wasted love of all your friends
Will rise up, bittersweet memories clutchin at you

To hug you
