How are you doing, come on in or we can do it outside
These are moments when you think you’d rather not be alive
It should only take a minute or two for what is due,
Then I’m through with you
See you ‘round, don’t be a stranger if you think it’s OK
I’d rather not see you for a couple of days, and I don’t care.

Because it’s over, it’s over, it’s over, it’s over now.

Everybody else is living in a gentle breeze
Over mountain tops across the wide open seas
Now I can’t say three simple words, three little words
For the life of me
That’s OK ‘cause there’s lots of ways, baby lots of ways
To show you how I feel and how I care.

I’ve been thinking back when things were just great
I’ve been wondering where we’ve gone
I’ve been thinking ‘bout the things that we say
And how we held on for too long.

That’s OK ‘cause it’s time to move on no matter what went wrong
And sing a different song that’s new
‘Cause everybody’s got their own design and we all need time
To find out what to do
I’m just living in a simple day with my simple ways
And I don’t want you here ‘cause I don’t care.

I can’t hide behind the little things that cloud my mind
And I don’t even want to stay
If we could block out the sound of paper houses falling down
We could just both walk away.
