I'm probably jumping the gun a little bit with this song; I have to wait another eleven weeks before I go to college, and there are plenty of things that could happen between now and then that prevent it. But I think I've waited long enough.


Take your scent out of my clothes
And take these monkeys off my back
You don't believe we're getting old
I shouldn't need to tell you that
I haven't got a poet's soul
Only the artifacts
But you don't really care

I know I lost my heart of gold
Maybe it's hiding somewhere else
Didn't misplace the gifts I owned,
Just left them dusty on a shelf
To help me make a better home
You need to change yourself
But you don't really care
And I'm already there

I'll hitch a ride and ditch this town
This rope's too frayed to keep me down
I'm not afraid to bust this door
I can't stand this room anymore
I know you think I'm out of line
But you're not good enough to change my mind
Tomorrow's taken way too long
So please don't miss me when I'm gone

Erase the message from my phone
And pick your coat up off my floor
You won't be leaving me alone
'Cause I ain't living here no more
My spirit never really shone
And you've been such a bore
But you don't really care
I'm sick of being there

I'll hitch a ride and ditch this town
This rope's too frayed to keep me down
I'm not afraid to bust this door
I can't stand this room anymore
I know you think I'm out of line
But you're not good enough to change my mind
Tomorrow's taken way too long
So please don't miss me when I'm gone

I don't want another day so I can keep pretending
And I don't want another way to write this story's ending
Don't really care about the losers I have been befriending
All I really want is you to stop all the bad vibes you're sending

I'll hitch a ride and ditch this town
This rope's too frayed to keep me down
I'm not afraid to bust this door
I can't stand this room anymore
I know you think I'm out of line
But honey you were never worth my time
I've been waiting way too long
So please don't miss me when I'm gone
