about

I wrote this in a fit of pain and frustration about someone for whom I once had great affection. I'm not proud of it. I hate what it says, but I'm a slave to the sound.

lyrics

You got your claws out
You’re going all out
You want to see me pay
Don’t get your facts right
Before you go start a fight
Now I get my say

I do not miss you
There is no more to do
I learned to turn the page
So if I shout it out
And if I tell it loud
No one will no your name

Yes you were done with me
And I was slow to see
I got the memo late
So please forgive me
For having feelings
That don’t evaporate

I do not miss it
I readjusted
I went along my way
I did not bend the truth
I did not tell on you
Nobody knows your name

You want discretion
What about your best friends
You told in great detail
I kept my mouth shut
I kept the tie cut
But you turned up again

I do not miss you
There is no more to do
I learned to turn the page
Now if I shout it out
And if I tell it loud
No one will know your name

You don’t want answers
You want my hands up
You'll get your war your way
You laid the cards out
You want to hash out
We're gonna raise the pain

I did not miss it
I readjusted
I went along my way
I did not bend the truth
I did not tell on you
Nobody knows your name

I do not miss you
There is no more to do
I learned to turn the page
Now if I shout it out
And if I tell it loud
No one will know your name
