The roof is falling down
There's nothing left for me here in this town
But I don't need a house to show me what I've left behind
Four walls are not enough to hold these memories of mine

Please believe me
You don't need to deceive me
I'll be gone by morning
And then you can carry on
You and your new love
Will be so happy when I'm gone

Look back, turn out the light
This old foundation wont last through the night
But even though I'll miss you
There are worse things that I have known
I've suffered greater sorrow than just being left alone

Please believe me
You don't need to deceive me
I'll be gone by morning
And then you can carry on
You and your new love
Will be so happy when I'm gone

These fadedwooden floors
Say if your her's I guess that she is yours
But I don't need a monument to prove that I had you
And maybe leaving this house turned out not so to be so hard to do

Please believe me
You don't need to deceive me
I'll be gone by morning
And then you can carry on
You and your new love
Will be so happy when I'm gone
Happy when I'm gone

    My InterpretationI think the song is pretty straight forward. The four walls(house) represents these two people's past relationship, and how now the house is falling apart and no longer holds their love as he's moved onto another girl.
