Now that I am thinking sober
Don't you try to get no closer
I'm just gonna get in my car and drive, and drive
Looking in the rearview mirror
Everything is so much clearer
Watch me wave it all goodbye, goodbye

The light's flashing, giving me all the danger signs
Someone to save, to save
But it don't work that way

Think you made your greatest mistake
I'm not gonna call this a break
Think you really blew it this time
Think you could walk on such a thin line
Won't be taking your midnight calls
Ignore the rocks you throw at my wall
I see it written in your face
You know you made it
Your greatest mistake

When the last straw is broken
When the last door is closing
I ain't that dumb to stick around, stick around
I ain't got the time for looking back
You went and let yourself slip through the cracks
And you just keep going down, down, down

I'm'ma stay undercover
Lay low need some time
No one to save, to save
This sick cycle's over babe

Think you made your greatest mistake
I'm not gonna call this a break
Think you really blew it this time
Think you could walk on such a thin line
Won't be taking your midnight calls
Ignore the rocks you throw at my wall
I see it written in your face
You know you made it
Your greatest mistake

Why you lookin' at me, spittin' the same old line?
Tryin' to creep back
Ain't no flippin' my mind
Don't you get it by now?
The story's over, over
Still callin' my name outside my house
I'm hittin' the switch
Watch the lights go out
Watch the lights go out

I hope you ache, ache, ache, oh, oh
I hope you ache, ache, ache, oh, oh

Think you made your greatest mistake
I'm not gonna call this a break
Think you really blew it this time
Think you could walk on such a thin line
Won't be taking your midnight calls
Ignore the rocks you throw at my wall
I see it written in your face
You know you made it
Your greatest mistake

    I think the meaning behind this song is moving on. Obviously. She finally realizes that the relationship is not healthy and she's getting out. "Now that I'm thinking sober, don't you try to get no closer, I'm just gonna get my car and drive." She's making the smart choice by running away from him. "I'm not that dumb to stick around." Way to go, Demi.
