Brian:(Ooooo, yeah)"I don't think I want this anymore,"As she drops the ring to the floor. She says to herself, "You've left before," (yeah)"This time you will stay gone, that's for sure." (yeah)Nick: And he shattered something elseto drag her suitcase down the path, To the driveway. She had never gone that far. Normally this would bethe time that shewould let him talk her out of leaving, But this time, without crying, as she got into her car, she said, Chorus: "No 'Happily Never After'That just ain't for me.Because finally,I know I deserve better, after all (ooooh)I'll never let another teardrop fall."(Aj: Faaaaaaallll)Aj: As she drove away she starts to smile, (yeah)Realized she hadn't for a while. No destination, she drove for mileswondering why she stayed in such denial. Nick: She was laughing about the way he shattered something else (shattered something else) To drag her suitcase down the path, to the driveway (to the driveway), she had never gone that far (oh, no)Normally this would be, the time that she (yeah)would let him talk her out of leaving, but this time, without crying, as she got into her car, she said, Chorus: "No 'Happily Never After'That just ain't for me(that just ain't for me)Because finally,I know I deserve better After all(that just ain't for me, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah)I'll never let another teardrop fall."Howiei'm done, I'm done, said I'm so done, (so done, yeah).
