I've been hearing 'bout what you've done
You've replaced me with another one
And though you've known her just a couple months
I hear you're sayin' forever soon

And, yeah, I think it's kinda weird
I mean, we were together for so many years
Seems strange to go straight from drying tears
To a wedding

My friends and family have been checking in
To see if I'm doin' alright
And I answer laughing that I'm goddamn happy
To be who I am tonight

'Cause I'm not her
No I'm the one that got away
I'm not her
I'm not the one who has to stay
and I'm feelin' free
'Cause you ain't got a hold on me no more
No no no no no no

You must have swept her off her feet
Yeah, I recall, you did the same to me
So I'm takin' bets on how long til she sees
That she's made a big mistake

'Cause I can't believe that you have changed
Enough to make the vows that you'll exchange
That shit don't happen in just a couple days
But, hey, I could be wrong


It's easy to feel angry
When I think of all the time I'd given you
After the way you'd treat me
How I'd forgive and we would start anew
While year by year kept passing
and there was no more laughing
Just screams and tears thrown 'cross the living room
and since we talked of wedding
The horror of imagining
What my life could have been is making me glad that...
