lyrics

Hey, I don't miss you anymore.
I put your memories in a cardboard box in the trash room, on the floor
if anybody wants them in their apartment, they might add something to the décor,
but I don't need them, 'cause I don't miss you anymore.

Hey, I don't think about you much
You were a bruise that ached and throbbed, you were all tender to the touch
but you know what they say, time heals all wounds and etcetera and such.
there's no scarring, and I don't think about you much.

and for a while there, it felt like you were oxygen
or water in the desert, or a bowl of soup after a hunger strike
but you stopped calling and you went and changed your locks and then
you weren't there when I needed you
and it made you really really really hard to like.

so there's no twinge of sadness now
I woke up feeling not in pain and said oh gee, by golly, wow.
I feel like I'm getting my braces off and my smile looks brighter than before,
I feel like a starfish growing back arm number five after getting cut down to four
I feel like you tore a big chunk out of my chest, and breathing became quite a chore
but I'm breathing fine and dandy today,
and you'll prob'ly never hear this anyway
but if I saw you again, here's just what I would say:
I don't miss you anymore.
