Why are you here?
Couldn't you tell him?
Were you afraid he'd hear?
You should have been thankful to be alone
You took off your shoes
Said anything further would be bad news
Cos you'd already started to disappear
And he couldn't complain
Just looked at yourlyric and crossed over to play
A record of quiet instrumentals
And I like what you wrote
This is a record full of sour notes
You should've been thankful to be alone

And I like what you wrote
But don't say you mean it when you know you don't
You should have been thankful to be alone, you know
You should have been thankful to be alone, you know
You should have been thankful to be alone
