Congratulations, you made the happiest girl in the world sad.
Congratulations you proved yourself to be nothin’ more than a man.
You try to make me crumble in the place where I stand,
But congratulations you picked the wrong girl to control ‘cause I know who I am.

That’s a pretty nasty trick to play on someone for a whole year…
Pursuing and losing and giving in to your fears.
And now you don’t believe me when I say it’s for real
But congratulations to me, ‘cause I know how to deal…. With you.

Okay I’ll play your game of give and take.
When I go away, that’s when you seem to wake.
It’s my turn to pull back now. Now I have to wait for you.

Congratulations, you made the happiest girl in the world cry.
Congratulations you proved yourself to be basically the average guy.
And now you’ve returned and I think I lost track… is it my turn to leave?
well maybe next time I won’t come back.

Like they all say, I can do better any day…. of the year.
