Rachael Yamagata – Ode To... lyrics

No thanks
No more
No love

I'm done
I've had enough

You're going off with her
And I wish I was
But there's another can be
Just because

All right
Be on your way
The kindest thing to say
Is not that you have fallen for me say
You'll come back to my arms again someday

Baby, write
Some words about
How you can't shut me out
How you must find a way
To see me one more time

One more time

And please call up all your friends and tell them it can't end
You don't know what you'd do
If you lost her

And lost me too

That's fine
That's good
That's nice

I understand the price
The cost of craving dark
Instead of light
I flip a coin to see if you still care tonight

My blood
My hand
My soul

I've thrown them onto you without control
The things I freely give
You stole
And now I'm left in pieces

Baby tell
The world about me
The way you won me over
In a city you can't remember
You think it was September
Sweet September

Oh baby
Oh it's all right
I know she needs you more than I do
And I wouldn't win this fight
But there is one thing
That you've gotta do,
You've gotta tell the world about a
Girl you once knew
Oh she
Wasn't meant to be

But you
Fell so very deeply
In love

With me

To all the girls he's loved
To all the girls he's loved
