Lyrics:         Because my lover left me for the girl
                that he had loved before
                The sky was clowdy then turned blue.
                Because I saw it was no use,
                to want someone who's heart was elsewhere.
                So I decided not to care (oh yeah)

Lyrics:         The grass is greener without you (It's true)
                So many things for me to do.
                Living my life for me and on my own.
                It is so great to be alone.
                And now you're knocking at my door,
                you've realized you love me more.
                Well I've got no time to hear apologies,
                I've got the world to see.
