Well, I left your life by the side of the road
I got a clear conscience, decoded the code
Your bags are packed, you're already gone
That's the last you'll hear of me
Move on, Move on...

I got a 'For Sale' sign and a brain in my head
I have paid my dues, I'm not crazy or dead
I know life is hard, well so am I
Don't cry for me
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye...

Cause I have laid down my guns and ammunition
You can go now, you can go now, you can leave now
This is my written permission...

I've been fighting for you for most of my life
I fought as a girlfriend, I fought as a wife
Oh, prisoners they say are no one to love
I am throwing in the towel,
I'm taking of these gloves...

Cause I have laid down my guns and ammunition
You can go now, you can go now, you can leave now
This is my written permission...

So you can tell Susan that you love her
When you look her in the eye...
And you can tell Gina when you look her in the eye.
You can sleep with yourself, you can sleep
With your lies, your lies, your lies, your lies...

I'm OK now - goodbye...

Cause I have laid down my guns and ammunition
You can go now, you can go now, you can leave me now
This is my written permission...
