I used to write some poems, I wrote some songs
We had a good thing going and now it's gone
I'll be a solo act and keep all of the profit from now on
The four of us would go out and now we're three
And ever since the blowout you're hard to see
If it's not her the only thing that I can think of is it's me
And I don't want to always be
Known as the ex of Y or Z

And I don't want you to think of her when you think of me
I don't want you to think of single with sympathy
You got troubles of your own
One plus one minus one is one, not just oh point five
I'm just happy to be here, happy that I'm alive
Try some troubles of your own sometime
Try some troubles of your own
Leave mine alone

Now that I'm forgotten and out of view
Don't want to be a problem or bother you
And make the people at your party not divisible by two
No need to still remind me that she's not here
I know she's way behind me in second gear
But memories in my rear view mirror are closer than they appear
And I'm content to stay right here
I got no hope, I got no fear

And I don't want you to think of her when you think of me
I don't want you to think of single with sympathy
You got troubles of your own
One plus one minus one is one, and not just a half
I still know how to smile and I still know how to laugh
Try some troubles of your own sometime
Try some troubles of your own

Leave mine alone and they can die
I'm going to fake their suicide
They'll leave a note behind that says they couldn't live this way
And I'm prepared to let them go
And I'm prepared to let her go
And I'm prepared to let her I don't know

And I don't want you to think of her when you think of me
I don't want you to think of single with sympathy
You got troubles of your own
One plus one minus one is one, not just oh point five
I'm just happy to be here, happy that I'm alive
Try some troubles of your own sometime
Try some troubles of your own
Leave mine alone
