Lyrics

Don’t worry, baby,
I know you’re leaving and you don’t mean maybe,
The love you never gave was a sly little wave,
Long before
Your bags were by the door, and

My oh my,
You won’t leave me wondering why.
Every tear you made me cry
Was as good as goodbye.

It’s all for the better.
‘Cause I don’t need to read a Dear Jane letter,
I’ve wasted my time, pretending your mine,
Far as I can tell, that’s your finest farewell, and

My oh my,
You won’t leave me wondering why.
Every tear you made me cry
Was as good as goodbye.

As if you thought that you could camouflage
Your eventual bon voyage,
Every plausible alibi
Was the tip of your hat, and a wink of your eye,

As if you thought that you could camouflage
Your eventual bon voyage,
Every plausible alibi
Was a tip of your hat, and a wink of your eye,

You won’t leave me wondering why.
Every tear you made me cry
Was as good as goodbye.

Every tear you made me cry
Was as good as goodbye.
