Story Behind the Song

A man gets out of a bad relationship


Bye Bye

Verse 1

Gotta leave, Gotta go
Its bye bye and not hello
I'm fed up with the arguments and tiffs

Going West, Going East
Its time recriminations ceased
I've had enough of wondering "What If ?"


The huffs and the long silences
Weren't exceptions but the rule
I've never been told off so much
Since I left primary school

Verse 2

Gotta leave, gotta go
Don't wanna see you anymo'
I need some peace and quiet for a while

Going North, Going South
I'll no longer hush my mouth
I've forgotten what its like to crack a smile


The put downs and the constant harping
Finally took their toll
The only highlight of my week
Was signing on the dole

Verse 3

Gotta leave, gotta go
Your conduct's hit an all time low
The whining on and on is now defunct

I'm heading out, I'm going to scoot
The boot's now firmly on the other foot
The myth that "you knew best" has been debunked


The memory of the last 10 years
Is fading day by day
The straw has broke the camel's back
But now i'm making hay

Verse 4

Gotta leave, gotta go
Can't stay around, I gotta blow
You're warped, you're damaged
And you're out of whack

Verse 5

Gotta leave, gotta go
Gonna leave this burlesque show
And I'm sure I'm never going back

And I'm sure I'm never going back.....
You can bet your life I'm never going back.....
And I'm sure I'm never going back
