I’ve been treated worse, but it’s been a while,
from the muttered curse to the bitter smile,
we were once in love, now I don’t know why,
but I think I’ll thank you when you say goodbye..

sometimes love is like a glass of milk,
when the milk goes sour you’ve gotta throw it out,
yeah, and sometimes love is like a hand grenade,
if you left me now, that would be okay..
+++++ ‘cause I think I’ll thank you when you say goodbye,
+++++ just like I thank every sharp stick that pokes me in the eye,
+++++ I can’t live without you, but I’d like to try,
+++++ I think I’ll thank you when you say goodbye..
+++ and they say what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger,
+++ but I’m just not convinced that I’ll get out alive,
+++ maybe you have helped to build my character,
+++ have I grown patience, or just a thicker hide?..

I should break this off, but I’m a little stuck,
a little broken down, a little shaken up,
but if I piss you off half of what you say,
you really should be gone, gone, gone now any day,
+++++ and I think I’ll thank you when you say goodbye,
+++++ just like I thank every sharp stick that pokes me in the eye,
+++++ I can’t live without you, but I’d like to try,
+++++ I think I’ll thank you when you say goodbye,
+++++ just like a sailboat thanks bad weather,
+++++ when it didn’t quite capsize,
+++++ I can chop an onion, if I need to cry,
+++++ but I think I’ll thank you, yes I’m gonna thank you,
+++++ I think I’ll thank you when you say goodbye…
