  • Well I never been good at goodbyes
    I'm gonna sneak out the back door
    Nobody can say that I didn't try
    Gonna sneak out the back door
    Let it ride, let the whole thing slide
    Drift far from the shore
    Don't wanna be missed
    Didn't even exist
    I'm gonna sneak out
    Sneak out the back door

    I got no small talk to speak of
    Gonna sneak out the back door
    There's a man here talking my ear off
    I'm gonna sneak out the back door
    To the night and the pale moonlight
    I can't hide anymore
    I'mo be on my way
    Got nothing to say
    I'm gonna sneak out
    Sneak out the back door

    I feel a pang of anxiety
    At the society gathering
    Gonna find me a corner
    This Little Jack Horner's unraveling
    Unraveling

    And when my life is over
    I'm gonna sneak out the back door
    Before the mood turns sober
    I'm gonna sneak out the back door
    Hadn't much of a "Midas Touch"
    No luck to be sure
    Would you give my regards to the people in charge
    While I sneak out
    Sneak out the back door

    Let it ride, let the whole thing slide
    Drift far from the shore
    Don't wanna be missed
    Didn't even exist
    I'm gonna sneak out
    Sneak out the back door

    Hmm, hmm, hmm
    Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
    Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
    Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm Writer/s: Ron Sexsmith
