Why are you here?
Couldn't you tell him?
Were you afraid he'd hear?
You should have been thankful to be alone

You took off your shoes
Said anything further
Would be bad news
'Cause you'd already started to disappear

And he couldn't complain
Just looked at your lyric
And crossed over to play
A record of quiet instrumentals

Said I like what you wrote
This a record
full of sour notes
Should have been thankful to be alone

Said I like what you wrote
But don't say you mean it
When you know you don't

You should have been thankful to be alone, you know (x2)

You should have been thankful to be alone

    General CommentI don't like the majority of Heatmiser stuff because it's so generic but there's at least an album full of good songs and this is one of them.
