"Just Because I Do" as written by and Jim James....
I go light, every night,
And just because I do:
I'm writin' off a letter,
To keep from losin' you.
I saw it in a letter.
Every night you talk in disguise,
And girl that ain't like you.
I'm wishin' you'd get better,
To save yourself some glue.
I go blind, every night
And just because I do:
I'm hopin' you'll get better,
And I'll get rid of you.
Then I'll get rid of you.

    General CommentI go light, every night, and just because I do:
    wishin you'll get better, and ill get rid of you.
    I saw it in a letter.
    I saw it in a letter.
    I saw it in a letter.
    I go blind, every night and just because I do:
    im writin off a letter, to save yourself some glue.
    Every night you talk in disguise, and girl that aint like you.
    Im wishin you'd get better, and ill get rid of you
    I saw it in a letter.
    I saw it in a letter.
    I saw it in a letter.
    I go blind, every night and just because I do:
    wishin you'll get better, and ill get rid of you.

    Then I'll get rid of you.
    Oh, I'll get rid of you.
    I'll get rid of you.
    I'll get rid of you.
    I'll get rid of you.

    I'll get rid of you.

    General CommentHe won't "get rid" of the girl until he's helped her sort out her problems (drink/drugs? - "talking in diguise").
    He's sent for help ("writing off a letter"), so she can get better and he can move on.
