Set It on Fire

Call me Baby Love just a little while longer
I know we're finished, but it'll help me get to sleep tonight
You were my best friend in a way I thought that they were only lying
Now you're just the person who fucked up my life

We lived in our own world to the detriment of others
Population: you and me
I saw that TV show with the opening theme song we always danced to
But somehow it's not as funny as it used to be

It's all the shit we had, I threw it out on the front lawn
I set it on fire, I gave some of it to a homeless woman
And even if society tells me that love is all you need, I think I'd rather just let it bleed
I'll benefit from some friends, but I'll never fall in love again

Let's go bowling for our anniversary
Being with you was always so much fun
Everyone loves you, but they leave the room, and you talk shit about them
Wouldn't they be shocked to find it was me who was the nice one

Never apologize to me when you're wrong
Don't take care of me when I'm down with the flu
Remember how you never respected my wishes, not even one time?
That was fun; you are great; I definitely miss you

It's all the shit we had, I threw it out on the front lawn
I set it on fire, I gave some of it to a homeless woman
And even if society tells me that love is all you need, I think I'd rather just let it bleed
You didn't quite do me in, but I'll never fall in love again

Call me monkey like you used to... for some reason
You liked to talk about, um, something and how you were small
Honestly, I've forgotten most everything there is to know about you
I'm not trying to be hurtful—I've really drawn a blank here—thank you, thank you, thank you, alcohol

It's all the shit we had, I threw it out on the front lawn
I smashed it to pieces, I gave some of it to a homeless woman
And even if society tells me that love is all you need, I know I'd rather just let it bleed
You didn't quite do me in; I'll just never fall in love again
I'll benefit from some friends, but I'll never fall in love again
And when I finally feel spent—oh, yeah—I'll never fall in love again
