You said you couldn't tell the doormat from my face
You said if I had brains I would pawn them
Could be I've finally gotten up off of my thumbs
Could be that you're the one that was on them

Cause the plants have grown
The dog came home
The bills are all getting paid
Things are much better since you went away
And I've changed my looks
I read new books
I've got friends that mean what they say
Things are much better since you went away

You said without your help I couldn't tie my shoes
You said without a doubt I'd be stranded
Could be that you were right and you had to fly the coop
Could be the eagle finally has landed

Cause the plants have grown
The dog came home
The bills are all getting paid
Things are much better since you went away
And I've changed my looks
I read new books
I've got friends that mean what they say
Things are much better since you went away

When I was younger I was told without another
I'd be incomplete and deflated
My chosen one has chosen to befriend another
And to my surprise - 
I'm elated!

Cause the plants have grown
The dog came home
The bills are all getting paid
Things are much better since you went away
And I've changed my looks
I read new books
I've got friends that mean what they say
Things are much better since you went away
[repeat]
