The Lyrics

separated, this marriage aint workin at all
found her picture on a website, maybe I'm too jaded
saw a lawyer today, find out how much I will pay
alimony's comin, when you're separated

isn't that the way divorces go? I can't forget all that
the amount is a number, and I don't mind it
so I will pay every dollar on time, and I'll show
I'm not a deatbeat you know, I hope she goes to hell
I only wish my words could comvince myself
it all feels unfulfilled, as I peel off dollar bills

separated, I always thought we'd have a ball
the alimony number you just gave me
there's tears in both eyes, I guess it happens every time
I lost both my cars and my savings

isn't that the way divorces go? I can't forget all that
the amount is a number, and I don't mind it
so I will pay every dollar on time, and I'll show
I'm not a deatbeat you know, I hope she goes to hell
I only wish my words could comvince myself
it all feels unfulfilled, as I peel off dollar bills

separated, can I forget about it all?
I'm thinkin she was a bit odd too
I'll try love one more time,
maybe find a girl that's kind
a prenup signed this time

isn't that the way divorces go? I can't forget all that
the amount is a number, and I don't mind it
so I will pay every dollar on time, and I'll show
I'm not a deatbeat you know, I hope she goes to hell
I only wish my words could comvince myself
it all feels unfulfilled, as I peel off dollar bills
