[Chorus]
Thank you
Thank you for letting me down
Thank you
Thank you for letting me down
Thank you for the times you left me somewhere way behind
You didn’t know that you were focusing my mind
Thank you for the troubles that you put into my hands
You didn’t know that you would put me where I am


[Bridge]
Believe me when I say I thank you all
Believe me that I’m glad you let me fall
But you should have done it harder, if you wanted it to stick
’Cause you set it out, you set it out, you set it out, you set it out
You laid it out, you laid it out, you laid it out
You did it for me

See, I remember
I remember every word
Yeah, I remember
I remember every word
And I see lies, on lies, on lies
Black marks across a page
Yeah, it was lies, on lies, on lies
So I left them where they lay
Just trash along the way

And now I say

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

You did it for me

    General CommentYou could say that it is about the record companies that messed him about and about which he wrote (his opinion piece went viral a couple of years ago: theguardian.com/music/2013/nov/07/…) or it could be about some girl and/or relationship breakdown.

    Whatever these lyrics are about, they leave no room for doubt on Whitey's feelings:
    - he is well over it!...with a vengeance!
