So we’re over and I’m glad
I won’t look back on what we had
Because you wanted misery,
Grieving and the death of me

Now you’ll see I’m all grown up
Don’t prefer this to my age
Noticing her in the wings
Another girl moves centre stage

She is tall and much prettier
Picked from my select committee
And she knows the capital of Iceland
She’ll sing in key and play guitar
Love Johnny Cash and Johnny Marr
And I’ll know exactly where I stand and with who
She’s a better you

Now I’m going out to think
And dance about and drink and drink
And go where you would not allow
Burn all of my bridges down

If you’re smart you’ll stay indoors
Keep from me what I abhor
I’ll be happy you’ll be sad
You’ll have regrets you wish you had

She is tall and much more pretty
Picked from my select committee
And she knows the capital of Iceland
She’ll sing in key and play guitar
Love Johnny Cash and Johnny Marr
And I’ll know exactly where I stand and with who
She’s a better you

Just so as we’re clear on this
To live as one, to live in bliss
Is all that I aspire to now
I’ll pack up and leave this town

Take it from me, all my fight
Lost when you took back the night
I’ll never write I’ll never phone
Tell them that I died alone

I now feel it’s appropriate
That you should be dismissed
I wish that I had knives for lips
To cut you as we kissed
I wish for personality
That I could then dissect
And a rope made of your pretty hair
To tie around your neck

She is tall and much more pretty
Picked from my select committee
And she knows the capital of Iceland
She’ll sing in key and play guitar
Love Johnny Cash and Johnny Marr
And I’ll know exactly where I stand and with who
When I’m over you
