  • I'm not sitting with my head in my hands right now
    I don't care where you've been
    No, I ain't watching the clock or getting my phone out
    I won't drink myself to sleep
    Oh, oh

    You don't, you don't get under my skin no more
    No, it's gone, it's gone
    I ain't thinking 'bout you no more

    I found a way to let you go
    So you don't have to stay now
    A broken mind, I came close
    But you can't rip my heart out
    I'm giving up, I'm giving up, I'll give you up
    I found a way to let you go
    It's gonna rip your heart out

    Got your picture covering up the cracks on the wall
    But the lines won't fade
    Didn't think that I would be missing you at all
    Maybe that was my mistake
    Oh, oh

    You don't, you don't, get under my skin no more
    No, it's gone, it's gone
    I ain't thinking 'bout you no more

    I found a way to let you go
    So you don't have to stay now
    A broken mind, I came close
    But you can't rip my heart out
    I'm giving up, I'm giving up, I'll give you up
    I found a way to let you go
    It's gonna rip your heart out

    Nothing you say will change my mind
    You couldn't wait to leave me behind
    Nothing you say will change my mind
    You couldn't wait to leave me behind
    Nothing you say will change my mind
    You couldn't wait to leave me behind

    I found a way to let you go
    So you don't have to stay now
    A broken mind, I came close
    But you can't rip my heart out
    I'm giving up, I'm giving up, I'll give you up
    I found a way to let you go
    It's gonna rip your heart out Writer/s: Denny Thakrar, Dido Armstrong, Robert Agostini, Rollo Armstrong
