Well I don't tell jokes
And I don't take notes
You been sayin there ain't much hope
You got nothin on me


I got friends uptown
And they don't talk down
They been keepin me safe and sound
We got somethin to be


So in case you hadn't noticed
I'm alright
Not like I was before
Things used to be so hopeless
But not tonight
Tonight I'm walkin out that door


I'm not gonna cry
I'm wavin goodbye
And I know this time
You got nothin on me


Well it ain't that tough
Just more of the usual stuff
One heartache is more than enough
There ain't nothin to see


I got friends uptown
And they still come 'round
They been keepin me safe and sound
We got somethin to be


So don't you try to save me
With your advice
Or turn me into somebody else
Cuz I'm not crazy and you're not nice
Baby keep it to yourself


I'm not gonna cry
And I'm wavin goodbye
And I know this time
You got nothin on me

    General CommentThis song makes a great anthem. While the song is specifically about freeing yourself from an unhealthy relationship, I enjoy the broader theme of reclaiming life, making a new start, and not taking shit from anyone. This song makes for a great listen right when you've reached the light at the end of the tunnel, and are leaving much behind, but have much ahead as well.
