"Phoenix Can Keep You" as written by and Davey Fortner....
Okay we get it, no body’s as scene as you
and everybody’s seen your new tattoo
Well no one is impressed and as for all the rest that lied to you
They’ll probably never tell
Ask me if I’m sorry, well

[Chorus:]
Two thousand miles no will never be enough
And Phoenix can keep you
I hope you’re better off without me because here in Georgia
Everybody’s happy

(Go!)
Whoa those lips are nice
But they’re about as pink as the words that you’ll say though them
Yeah, with your dress to match,
I don’t want you back, ask me if I’m sorry…
It’s you that I’m sorry for

[Chorus:]
With out you around
Without you in this town
I can finally see so clear
Without you here

And after all that we’ve been through
I will forget you, well

Two thousand miles (Oh)
Two thousand miles (Woah)
I hope you’re better off without me because here in Georgia
Everybody’s happy

Without you around
Without you in this town
(I can finally see so clear)
Without you

    General CommentI love the acoustic version of this (:
    So, basically their relationship ended. She was a fake, and he was sick of her acting like she was so much cooler and better than everyone else. She moves off but he doesn't miss her at all and he even feels sorry for her. His life seems so much better now that she's gone, and everyone else in town seems happy also.

    I could be wrong, but it seems pretty straight forward to me.
