Katrina Elam The Breakup Song

Years go by, the singers change

Same old story but the words get rearranged

Somebody loves someone, somebody left someone

Somebody swears it wasn’t s’pouse to end this way


People dance to summertime

Happy songs with happy rhymes

The melodies make you wanna drive and sing along

And singers talk about growing up

The first kiss and being in love

But nothing hits as close to home as the break up song

Violins and i love you

If the slightly miss their mark they ring untrue

But something ’bout goodbye making someone cry

Sounds to me more like what real people do


We need to talk, this ain’t working out

Can we still be friends, i found soumeone else

I need some space, this just feels wrong

Everybody’s lived the breakup song
