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 Commentwell
    he was a leukemia patient....so maybe he was talking about his friend's lying to help him pull through it
    look at this line

    Guess what? I'm done writing you songs
    I'm far too unstable to shadow
    I doubt that my doctors were wrong
    So wait by the palm tree, palm tree, palm tree

    yeah...see
    and his sister was the donor that gave her bone marrow for his surgery
    idk
    i thought it was neat...but yeah i think that's what this song is about his friends lying to help him pull through the leukemia
