It’s the Way It Should Be

I can’t pretend baby

That I care what you say

It’s just that lately

I’m not listening anyway

I was on the edge

Always looking for a fight

Guess I got my wish now darling

Cause you’re here tonight

 

It’s the way it should be

You’re no good for me,  But  it’s OK

You were kind of boring anyway

All your condescension

And pretension, I know why

You have absolutely nothing left

In your life

 

I laugh at your transparency

The games you think you play

Then why is it so easy

For me to just walk away?

All day long you ramble on

You’re so much better than me

If that’s true then why are you

The one who can’t see?

 

It’s the way it should be

You’re no good for me,  it’s OK

You were kind of boring anyway

All your condescension

And pretension, I know why

Cause you have absolutely nothing left

In your life

 

It’s the way it should be

It’s OK

Cause you were boring anyway

All your condescension, I know why

Cause you’ve got nothing left

 

It’s the way it should be

You’re no good for me,  But it’s OK

Cause you were so damn boring anyway

All your condescension

And pretension, I know why

You have absolutely nothing left

In your life
