Opening Lyrics:

Well, good for you, I guess you moved on really easily
You found a new girl, and it only took a couple weeks
Remember when you said that you wanted to give me the world? (World?)
And good for you, I guess that you’ve been working on yourself
I guess that therapist I found for you, she really helped
Now you can be a better man for your brand-new girl (girl)
Well, good for you, you look happy and healthy
Not me, if you ever cared to ask
Good for you, you’re doing great out there without me, baby
God, I wish that I could do that
I’ve lost my mind, I’ve spent the night crying on the floor of my bathroom
But you’re so unaffected, I really don’t get it
But I guess good for you
