As far as we knew everything was fine.
Our parents didn't argue or get into fights.
But behind their bedroom doors we could hear everything.
We could hear sounds that came out of mouths
that were fed up and tired of living their lives.

They said -

This is the end. We've come a long way.
Looking back on it, I wish I'd forget every god damn day.
This is the end. We've been through so much.
But let's turn our backs, and forget the past. We'll keep in touch.

How do you explain to your three young children that your calling it quits?
Do you think they'll understand what that family meeting meant?
Are you out of your mind?
You could tell them ten times and they still wont know the truth-
That their family is starting to fall apart.

This is the end. We've come a long way.
Looking back on it, I wish I'd forget every god damn day.
This is the end. We've been through so much.
But let's turn our backs, and forget the past. We'll keep in touch.

We'll sign the papers and split everything two ways.
The kids need a full-time mom, and I'll get to see them every weekend.

The two of us will lead better lives, and as for the kids,
I think they'll turn out just fine.


This is the end. We've come a long way.
Looking back on it, I wish I'd forget every god damn day.
This is the end. We've been through so much.
But lets turn our backs, and forget the past. We'll keep in touch.
