"This House is Not My Home"

Well you know that I'm not too good at goodbyes
And so I'll try to keep this one concise
This I know
That when I go
I won't be looking back oh no
I've sold you everything I own
This house is not my home

I've been good, or at least as good as I can be
And if I could, I'd find a way to keep you company
I hope you find
Somewhere in your mind
A way to keep the time
You know I'm doing fine

But, well that's the way it goes yeah that's the way it goes
I don't believe in angels 'cause I don't believe in ghosts
Everything you tell me, that was yesterday
You won't be seeing me around here anyway
So don't you shoot me down, don't you shoot me down
I'll sell myself to the whole wide world until I'm in the ground
No don't you shoot me down, don't you shoot me down
I'll sell myself to the whole wide world
