"Splitting Up" as written by and Edwyn Stephen Collins....
To anyone who's followed me
I offer my apologies
I'm splitting up

I can't afford to compromise
With someone I don't recognize
I'm splitting up

The idea first occurred to me
While shaving rather cautiously
'Cause I bleed easily

My head is separating from my heart
I'm splitting up

The crocodiles will shed their tears
While other reptiles sneer & jeer
"He's splitting up"
I'm splitting up

The notices, lest we forget,
Are posted on the internet
"He's splitting up"
I'm splitting up

I can't say I went out in style
My differences unreconciled
Embittered to the end
Neither moving nor affecting
All I'm doing is disconnecting
I'm splitting up

What's it all about?
Haven't got a clue
Only thing I know
It isn't down to you
To decide these things

Still you carry on
Still you scream & shout
I know that it's wrong
I haven't got the clout
To deride these things

But if my heart had wings
I'd fly away

To anyone who's followed me
I offer my apologies
I'm splitting up
I'm splitting up
I'm splitting up

I'm feeling down
I'm feeling down
I'm splitting up
I'm splitting up
