It's really hard hearing you weep
How I once hated being free
But it's 2:30 and I'm trying to sleep
Could you please stop texting me?

You've gotta get hold of your heart
And get used to being apart
You've gotta get hold of yourself
And maybe get some kind of help

Emily baby you're trying too hard
You need to learn how to relax
A white knight will surely ride in
And you've got your choice of blacks

You've gotta get hold of your heart
I know you can take a cold start
You gotta get over yourself
And maybe get some kind of help

What should you do
With the rest of your life?
I haven't a clue
But I better get back to my

Wife and children and all of that crap
'Til I find a better job
I'm sick of the hot plate
And the continental breakfast
And dressing like a slob

I gotta get hold of my heart
And stop tearing yours apart
I better get hold of myself
I guess that i'm going to hell

(We love you, we love you)

We had fun and we had laughs
It's time to leave them in the past
You'll move on
You'll find a friend
You'll find new love
A man who'll treat you better
Than I can

You're so young and I'm so old
This my darling we've been told
All the internships in the world
Can't wear away your smile
Or your intrinsic worth

You've got the world at your feet
And I've got nothing left to lose but compromise
Did I ever tell you
You have the most beautiful eyes?

And a smile like the sun
That shines and pleases everyone
So dry those tears it's time to go
Try not to slam the door
It's a leased convertible
