While you were fucking off
I went and found something new
Packed up all my shit
Stole back all my tapes
Left your spare key under the mat
This is not a joke
You'd better learn to take a hint
‘Cause I'm not coming back
Maybe you'll understand
When you're waking up alone
In a cold and empty bed

If you're reading this
I'm gone
Happy birthday
P.S. – don’t write
‘Cause you will not get a reply

While you were fucking off
I got my life in shape
Somewhere along the line
I found a hidden strength that I didn’t know I had
Standing on my own
Cutting all the strings that you used to control
Surprise, surprise
I am long gone

If you thought you could keep me down
By holding me up
You were wrong
You don't call the shots anymore

While you were fucking off
I learned to love myself again
Even better now
I learned to hate you
C'est la vie, baby
We're through
I’ll see you around
Maybe on the sixth of never

    General Commentwow. im the first to comment on this song. radd. it looks to me like hes writing a letter to a girlfriend tell her hez leaving. it kinda seems like the woman had all the control in the relationship and he was sick of that. he learned its better to be by yourself then with someone whos gonna control you. and he's right.

    General CommentFav breakup song ever. It's so full of hate but so positive. It's like "Fuck you, I don't need you, I'm better off."
