Step back, stay away
Please leave me alone
I can’t bear to listen
Wanna be on my own.

The lies,  the excuses
They’re  too much anymore
I’m tired and I’m weary
What are you here for?

Walk away from my doorway
Get back in your car
You aren’t welcome here
You pushed things too far.

Nothing left to make sense of
No need to explain
Your story’s been told
Heard it time and again.

Just back it on up
Please be on your way
Nothing more for you here
Nothing more left  to say.

No vendettas or ill wishes
Just wiping the slate clean
Tending to my heartache
No further need to intervene.
