I'm Outta Here

I guess it’s my own fault 
For not seeing the seeing the signs from day one. 
I should have just walked away, 
Or better yet, cut my losses and run. 
I don’t know why I let your darkness 
Walk right through my door. 
It is what it is - I’ve done all I can, 
And I can’t do any more. 

I stand by you, but you don’t ever seem to care. 
You always make me feel like I’m not even there. 

Just need to lick my wounds and grab a beer. 
I’m outta here. I’m outta here. 
Let’s face it, you or I won’t even shed a tear. 
I’m outta here. I’m outta here. I’m outta here. 

You kept the very best years of my life 
Sitting on a shelf. 
And now the time has finally come 
To save myself. 
I know you disagree, 
But I don’t think it’s so very wrong 
To change my direction 
And move on. 

I’m not perfect, but I swear I’ve got nothing to hide. 
You never believe me, and invent new ways to hurt me inside. 

Just need to lick my wounds and grab a beer. 
I’m outta here. I’m outta here. 
Let’s face it, you or I won’t even shed a tear. 
I’m outta here. I’m outta here. I’m outta here. 

Just need to lick my wounds and grab a beer. 
I’m outta here. I’m outta here. 
Let’s face it, you or I won’t even shed a tear. 
I’m outta here. I’m outta here. I’m outta here.

Songwriter's Notes: Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever, and not all couples are destined to remain together. This bittersweet songs describes bailing out of a bad relationship in order to save oneself. Blending country pop and light rock music genres, the song has a laid back vibe to deliver some emotional lyrics.
