We wrote this story down with a turn of each page
We alter the way that our family unfolds in the end

It doesn't really make a difference
And did you even care
That we were torn at the seams
But did you really fight to change
The history that we made
That was torn between the pages of our lives
I can't stand another night

So go on pretending that you'll come back to me
If you thought this was easy
Then why's it so hard to for you to leave me?
You slammed the door in my face
So broken it's clear as day to see
If you thought this was easy
Just let me know cause you don't need me
Let me waste my time on someone else

A bitter misconception, to learning foolish lessons
If you ever feel alone, just pick up your phone
Now I'm waiting on the other end of an empty dial tone
This is the final time I'm left behind
No more love to hold

So go on pretending that you'll come back to me
If you thought this was easy
Then why's it so hard to for you to leave me?
You slammed the door in my face
So broken it's clear as day to see
If you thought this was easy
Just let me know cause you don't need me
Let me waste my time on someone else

She dotted every I and crossed every T
So perfectly in her last letter to me
It's like a bad dream
I hold it all in and start again
Even though it's too late to walk away

If you thought this was easy
Then why's it so hard to for you to leave me?
You slammed the door in my face
So broken it's clear as day to see
If you thought this was easy
Just let me know cause you don't need me
Let me waste my time on someone else
