Guess what, I'm done writing you songs
You give up your job at the bank
Proving money's not fun when you're gone
So this is the first verse
It's not very long
But I'm ready to move on

Guess what, I'm done
Writing your book
The ending got twisted around
But for all of the hell that it took
The electrical wires
They hum in the walls
In the room that I rent now without you

I've got friends who (la la lie)
Will help me pull through (la la lie la la la lie)
The spaceman that can't get high
I'm coming back to my girl by July
Yeah yeah yeah

So guess what, I'm done
Drawing you pictures
I'm dulling the day with a drink
In a parking garage by the theatre
We met for a movie
Every scene was a sign
We made out through their meaning

Well I've got friends who (la la lie)
Will help me pull through (la la lie la la la lie)
The spaceman that can't get high
I'm coming back to my girl by July
Yeah yeah yeah

Guess what, I'm done
Writing you songs
I'm far too unstable to settle
I doubt that the doctors are wrong
So I'll wait by a palm tree, a palm tree, a palm tree

Well, I've got friends who (la la lie)
To help me pull through (la la lie la la la lie)
A spaceman that can't get high
I'm coming back to my girl by July

Well I've got friends who (la la lie)
Will help me pull through (la la lie la la la lie)
This song for a long goodbye
I'm coming back
I'm coming back to my girl (la la lie)
Back to my girl (la la lie la la la lie)

This song for a long goodbye
I'm coming back to my girl by July

    General CommentHmm. Initially I thought the song was about how his friends have lied to him and his girlfriend has done something to upset him, but I am beginning to wonder if maybe it's about his friends lying to him saying stuff like "It'll get better" etc to help him feel better when they know that really his girlfriend is a b*tch and his situation sucks.

    I figure this song was written before he found out he had leukemia but the part that goes "I doubt the doctors are wrong, so I'll wait by a palm tree" that leads into the chorus also made me think about how all his friends were probably trying to cheer him up when he was in the hospital.
