"No Guilt" as written by and Chris Butler....
Needed new posters, so I bought them
I know the cost of stamps now
The thirty-first is when I pay the phone bill
I told them I didn't even know anybody in Toronto

Everyday at seven I've been watching Walter
I've been reading more and looking up the hard words
I met people who can get me on the guest list
My parents said that they would help me
pay for grad school

You know I had never washed a sweater
I never knew when my hair was too long
I got the cab calls out of my hi-fi
I learned alot since you've been gone
I've done alot since you've been gone

Not bitter - beat a vicious cycle
Typecast as the model couple
I'm sorry but I don't feel awful
It wasn't the end of the world
I'm sorry I can't be helpless
It wasn't the end of the world

I know someone who really met Belushi
I fixed the toilet so it doesn't always run
I moved a chair over by the window
I feel better if my laundry's done

Getting by on less sleep than I used to
I had no trouble in setting up a desk
I learned the reason for a three-pronged outlet
I got 100 on my driver's test

I got a trick to get them to deliver
I called the landlord when the water turned brown
Did you know I own some valuable records?
I've done alot since you've been gone
I've learned alot since you've been gone

Not mad - beat a vicious cycle
Typecast as the perfect couple
I'm sorry but I don't feel awful

    Song MeaningThis song is definitely dated with the references to HiFis, Walter (Cronkite), John Belushi and records.

    The singer has run into her ex and everything she says is about how she as able to move on and become stronger as a result of being left. "Thank you for the chance to grow up" says it all.
