I don't want you anymore
Summer's gone, and now I'm sure
The box behind my bed I'd saved
I took out with the trash today

Oh, the truth is I've met someone new
The truth is you probably have, too
The truth is I can't stand your face
When I think of all the love we made

Oh, we took a walk, we took a walk
Out by the Hudson River
The humid breeze, your need to please
It made my shoulders shiver

You asked me, "Baby girl, how long until my heart recovers?"
I'm sure the answer's never
You're a top back shelf, out of date, too late, expired lover

No, I'm not the only girl to save
Items past their expiration date
I sucked you up till my stomach churned
My throat closed, my eyes would burn

Someone told me love was supposed to hurt
But now I've learned
And I don't want this anymore
Like the hand-me-downs waiting by my door
I kept you around, but I don't know what for

So I took a walk all by myself from Riverside to South Street
It's two AM, I've let you in and whenever you're here I can't sleep
Is there any way to save you and me?
Baby, not that I've discovered
Enjoy taking all my covers
This is your last sleepover

You're a top back shelf, out of date, too late, expired lover
You're a top back shelf, out of date, too late, expired lover
