about

My hope is that "I'm Done" becomes the anthem of the person who has both feet out the door, and wants to leave their former partner with a memorable goodbye. I want it to serve has the Millennial/Gen Z equivalent of Erykah Badu's "Tyrone", where the goodbye is short, direct, and permanent (and also a little humorous at points to cut the mounted tension).

lyrics

I’m done with you
I’m done with this
Done with your ‘tude

And yes that’s attitude
Which neither of us seem to lack

I’m done with you
I’m done with this
Done with the rewind

Rinse wash repeat
Over what you seem to miss


Cause I’m calling out the moment lingering sentiments I’m phoning in
I think it's time to call it day
And you’re playing with a fire that ignites my song of tired
What I am no longer is trying to play-with you

Let my words act as a warning, global, inside out and turning,
You might think it's fine to treat me with ease
But I'm coming for your lazy, watch me sink into my crazy
If you think i'll let you treat me as you please

I’m over you
Done with your shit
I’m over us
I’m over it

And yes it was once a you and me
But now it's more like you and her

And she’s the one who used to not know
How to tell you to swerve
But I'm here now


I might fall into a loneliness where gravity bounds nothing miss me
With that sad and tired, “oh I can change”
If i leave now I’ll find sanctuary in myself and actually move me forward
In a real kind of way

So my leaving sits on promises of futures knowing good and well you
Wouldn’t, couldn’t dare try to provide
Cause you’re lacking what I'm growing, and your childish ways are showing
Let's end here, I’m done
Good luck and goodbye
