  • It seems like weeks since you looked at me baby
    Without that look of distaste
    I don't know why your feelings are changing
    But I've seen it in your face
    All those times when our lips were kissing
    Our tongues were telling lies
    And all those signs that I've been missing
    Were right there in your eyes.

    So come on babe, let's kiss this thing goodbye.

    I sometimes feel when we're together baby,
    Everything has turned out wrong
    And I know you feel exactly the same way
    But still we carry on.
    I've been waiting up by the window
    Watching these cars go by
    And I tell myself that I'll go through the motions
    For the last time tonight.

    So come on babe, let's kiss this thing goodbye.

    Now I'm watching the fumes foul up the sunrise
    I'm watching the light fade away
    And I'm hoping tonight that I'll open the door
    And you'll stand here and say

    Come on babe, let's kiss this thing goodbye
    Better make it sooner than later
    Before it all turns sour
    We'd better kiss this thing
    Goodbye. Writer/s: IAIN WALLACE HARVIE, JUSTIN CURRIE, MICHAEL SLAVEN

  • Tim from Clarkdale, AzThis was my anthem when I was getting ready to dump my ex. It took months to disentangle myself from her. I was walking air when it was finally over. This song reminds me how glad I was to get rid of her and out of that relationship.
