  • Seattle finally couldn't hold her
    It made no difference what you told her
    You say you're sorry but now what is that?

    You oughta knock it off
    You had your chances but now they're gone
    Oh baby knock it off
    You can't just stand there on her front lawn

    An overdose is almost clearer
    A diagnosis is a mirror
    You can't unsee it when you look like that

    You oughta knock it off
    You had your chances but now they're gone
    Oh baby knock it off
    You can't just stand there on her front lawn

    C'mon get in the car, it's over
    You're just building up more regret
    You don't get any four-leaf clover yet

    You can't look sideways or behind you
    I'm sure she knows just where to find you
    She made her choices and now that is that

    You oughta knock it off
    You had your chances but now they're gone
    Oh baby knock it off
    You can't just stand there Writer/s: Aimee Mann
