(Verse #1)
Well, I'm through with making up
All these reasons that I stay stuck
With a woman whose lost her mind
You would've thought I'd seen it coming this time
Don't try to make me stay
Let it go, it' s better this way
There's not much to leave behind
Just sad goodbye's

(Chorus)
I've got a one way ticket
And I'm never coming back
I'm headed out west
On a one way track
Gonna leave these worries behind
Like a wing clipped eagle whose waiting to fly
When all is said and done
You're gonna be the lonely one
This one way ticket says we're through
There's no way out for you

(Verse #2)
Well, goodbye sweet thing
Here's to you
And all the hell you put me through
Girl, you know it's plain to see
It was never really meant to be
She throws her hair back, rolls her eyes
Looks at me with that evil smile
Says "I'll never make it on my own"
Quivers at the thought of being alone

(Chorus)
I've got a one way ticket
And I'm never coming back
I'm headed out west
On a one way track
Gonna leave these worries behind
Like a wing clipped eagle whose waiting to fly
When all is said and done
You're gonna be the lonely one
This one way ticket says we're through
There's no way out for you

(Bridge)
When all is said and done
You're gonna be the lonely one
This one way ticket says we're through
I've got a one way ticket
Now I'm heading down the track
Time to get this monkey off my back
Gotta break these chains on me
So, I ride this train 'til it sets me free

(Chorus)
I've got a one way ticket
And I'm never coming back
I'm headed out west
On a one way track
Gonna leave these worries behind
Like a wing clipped eagle whose waiting to fly
When all is said and done
You're gonna be the lonely one
This one way ticket says we're through
There's no way out for you

(Coda)
This ticket says we're through
This ticket says we're through
Now I'm through with you
