Sad to see, ashamed to say
It's over and it's ending
It's ridiculous, I'll miss you, yes
But I must go
Gotta know it kills me when
You get so condescending, tell me
"Go appease some peace and please me"
Now I must go

Don't want nothing from you darling
It's enough to know you're sorry

I've stained my socks, I've scratched my nose
From picking eggshells from my toes
My soles are soaked with yoke
I gotta go
And you protest, I just don't buy
It's truly unrequited
I didn't know it was one-sided
So I gotta go

At this point nothing matters
Don't be angry, just be flattered

'Cause no one offends me as gently as you do
Then drives me on empty as sweetly as you do
Then lets me down easy as fearlessly as you...

And hindsight may provide a twist
An insight not so black and white
From our first kiss to our last tryst
To "gotta go"

This stately meantality has me longing for clarity

And no one offends me as gently as you do
Then drives me on empty as sweetly as you do
Then lets me down easy as fearlessly as you...

Sad to see, ashamed to say
It's over
Sad to see, ashamed to say
It's over
Sad to see, ashamed to say
It's over

And no one offends me as gently as you do
Then drives me on empty as sweetly as you do
Then lets me down easy as fearlessly as you...

I must go

    General CommentCorrection:
    Tell me, "Go in peace, appease me please"

    This stay-leave mentality has me longing for clarity
