You got what you wanted like before
But it's never enough like you need
To pick my heart up off the floor
You send me away and you know that I'll go
But if love is a garden, that's needing some water
You're bringing a drought and your heart will never grow

And I've waited for you to change your mind, my friend
It's been fun and I hate to see it end
And now that I'm leaving, I can say
I know that I've had the time of my old life

I'm leaving your picture behind
It's only a matter of time
I'll be on my way to my life
You won't have to tell me goodbye

I sent you a message like before
Only this one was from me
I'm not the paper on the floor
Or the garbage you're throwing away anymore
'Cause if love is a house and you never get out
Then your heart will jump out of your body and break on the floor

And I've waited for you to clean your mess my friend
And I hope that I never see you like this again
And now that you're leaving I wish you
All of the best but won't say goodbye
I said it before in my old life

I'm only saying this once
I'm gone for good
You are what you make yourself

'Cause I'm what you'd call a lover, not a fighter
I like the flowers in pure sunlight
And I can start over here and heal my heart again
Now that I'm on my own

I'm leaving your picture behind
It's only a matter of time
I'll be on my way to my life
You won't have to tell me goodbye
You won't have to tell me goodbye
You won't have to tell me goodbye
