Just Enough Time

Come on, it's not a walnut,
Can't you break it?
It's just my heart;
I can take it;
Come on, what's takin' you so long;
I've got enough time,
That I could write you a song:
About lovin' and leavin',
So what if my chest is still heavin',
I'm dead,
And you are wed;
To some mullet-wearin' moron,
And I don't have the strength
To go on;
So goodbye, you were better off
Without me;
And don't cry,
'Cause I am glad that you left me,
Since with me sayin' goodbye,
You won't have to cry;
When I'm ready to be buried,
I'll just be the one that you carried
For a while,
And then left,
With a smile.
