And in the end you took the easy way out
so I let it go that seemed the easier route
but I don't really feel like making you feel better about it

Don't worry
I've done plenty of practicing
these days I say goodbye more than anything

And it's days like these that remind you why
you learned how to tell such convincing lies
you just shrug it all off and say everything's fine
and when Alaskan boys bear regretful smiles
they return them all with the same flat eyes
you think you're too old for this shit anymore but you try

The other night you tried to explain
I couldn't think what it would matter
or how it would change things
and darlin' you underestimated me

Don't worry
I've done plenty of practicing
these days I say goodbye more than anything

And it's days like these that remind you why
you learned how to tell such convincing lies
you just shrug it all off and say everything's fine
and when Alaskan boys bear regretful smiles
they return them all with the same flat eyes
you think you're too old for this shit anymore but you try

Every time you put your clothes on
I'm so convinced it's over
and still you keep coming around
you don't see what you're takin'
make rules so we can break 'em
and still you keep comin' around

Every time you put your clothes on
I'm so convinced it's over
and still you keep coming around
you don't see what you're takin'
make rules so we can break 'em
and still you keep comin' around

Nothing I can say that's just how you are
Nothing I can do to ease your mind or get things to the way we thought they were
I put my hand up and walked away
Still so sure you'll be back around someday
Nothing I can say that's just how you are
That's just how you are
That's just how you are . . .
