Breaking Up Was Easy In The 90s

Album: Southside (2020)
  • Bartender looked at me like, "Pony up man, we're closing down"
    I paid the tab and I turned around
    Got on that phone on the way home
    Ended up down the rabbit hole again

    Funny how you haven't changed a bit but you're twice as pretty
    I'm glad you finally got to see New York City
    And I know it's not a race
    But it looks like you're getting over me faster than I'm gettin' over you
    But hey, what you gonna do?

    I'm sick of sitting at the house
    Dying on my phone
    Wishin' I was somewhere I could be alone
    Try to let you go but somethin' always reminds me
    I bet breaking up was easy in the 90's

    I'm tired of gettin' drunk
    Tired of being free
    Tired of seeing pictures I don't wanna see
    Girl you're everywhere
    Everywhere but behind me
    I bet breaking up was easy in the 90's

    Back then I could've convinced myself that maybe you called when I was out
    But you didn't know what to say, so you didn't leave a message
    And that you're probably home right now, sound asleep
    'Cause going out isn't really your thing

    And I wouldn't have a clue what you've been up to lately
    Or who you've been up to it with
    But when I don't miss your calls, I miss you calling
    And I go 'round and 'round again

    I'm sick of sitting at the house
    Dying on my phone
    Wishin' I was somewhere I could be alone
    Try to let you go but somethin' always reminds me
    I bet breaking up was easy in the 90's

    I'm tired of gettin' drunk
    Tired of being free
    Tired of seeing pictures I don't wanna see
    Girl, you're everywhere
    Everywhere but behind me
    I bet breaking up was easy in the 90's

    Modern love leads to modern hearts breaking
    I'm just a product of my generation
    And I 'bout had enough
    Watching you gettin' on with your life

    Baby, I'm sick of sitting at the house
    Dying on my phone
    Wishin' I was somewhere I could be alone
    I try to let you go but somethin' always reminds me
    (I bet breaking up was easy in the 90's)

    I'm tired of gettin' drunk
    Tired of being free
    Tired of seeing pictures I don't wanna see
    Girl you're everywhere
    Everywhere but behind me
    I bet breaking up was easy in the 90's
