I don't know what you're doing
I don't think that you're seeing straight
I think you need your glasses
You might just walk right into the door
And I'd rather you walk out of the door

You say you like my story
I guess I'll tell it once again
But do you want to listen
Or maybe you just walk out the door
Take your shoes and walk right out of the door

No, no, no, no
I never liked you like you did
Please just remember I'm a kid
I don't wanna be married
Yet

You like to read your fortune
I'd rather you just read the news
So, baby, here's the headline:
Take your shoes and walk right out of the door
Could you please just walk right out of the door?

I want to ride my bike home
You put a helmet on my head
I'm tired of these miles
Pedal fastly, you take the car
Either way, you know we're never that far

No, no, no, no
I never liked you like you did
Please just remember I'm a kid
I don't wanna be married
Yet

Someday somebody's gonna come along
And you will like the way she dresses
The way you'll paint her will be better off
And you will smile as she confesses the love she does
But I'm not that girl, because

You want to make me dinner
I'd rather eat a piece of toast
It's really not that filling
To sit across the table and stare
Either way, you know it's never that fair, no

You think you're really something
I think you're really something else
If you can see the future
Why can't you just see that we're through?
I'm ending it the way that I do

No, no, no, no
I never liked you like you did
Please just remember I'm a kid
I don't wanna be married
Yet

So take your fortune
Take you glasses
Drive the car that drives the fastest
Find your shoes and walk right out the door

    General CommentI love this. Kate, obviously, is in touch with her inner child (alright, verging on immature. But can you really hold that against her?) and has no desire to be held down by this fellow's serious and egotistical nature. (She never liked him as much as he liked himself.)
    Many lines (You put a helmet on my head/ You want to make me dinner/ You will like the way she dresses) show her partner picking at her faults, trying to change the person that she is.
    He is also quite sure of himself, believing what he wants to believe and not seeing reality: "You to read your fortune, I'd rather you just read the news." (The line about him needing his glasses also refers to this blindness towards her wishes, and their underlying incompatibility)

    In the end, she is refusing to let him suffocate her, and telling him quite clearly to walk away rather than dragging her along ("I'm tired of these miles"; and the resounding "Walk right out of the door")
    Anyway, this song makes me smile. It also makes me want to don a yellow raincoat and jump in puddles.
    I think that Kate should be streamed from every station:)

    General CommentSoothing song, I love her voice. I don't think it's really any question as to what she's talking about. Still, it's so upbeat for a breakup song.
