lyrics

It’s 9 in the morning, and i’m fixing breakfast just for one today
and the country station’s playing some old tired song ‘bout a man who’s gone away
but this time, boy, it’s me who’s gone and i’m sorry if you’re all alone
but i just couldn’t stand it one more day

you were sweet and you were fun and you were kind to everyone
‘xcept for me
they loved you they adored you, they wonder why i left, but they just don’t see
the way you loved so deeply, purely, wholely, loved yourself, that is
so instead of being your Misses, i’m just my miss.

you may be angry now, but i’m sure real soon you’re gonna be just fine
and you’ll even find yourself a girl whose cooking is as good as mine
then you can go back to that dirty old bar, and tell everyone there how much better off you are
now that i’ve gone far away for good this time


you were sweet and you were fun and you were kind to everyone
‘xcept for me
they loved you they adored you, they wonder why i left, but they just don’t see
the way you loved so deeply, purely, wholely, loved yourself, that is
so instead of being your Misses, i’m just my miss.
I'd rather be my own girl than be his.
