Lyrics

[Verse]
I think that being in love with me felt like a job to you,
not something you really wanted but just something you had to do,
so you complete your tasks, you do your chores, take out the trash and sweep the floors,
and a job well done is kind of fulfilling, but nothing feels as good as going home

[Pre-Chorus]
And you gave me a two-week notice,
even if you didn’t say it explicitly, you gave me a two-week warning, you didn’t have to tell me- I knew that you would leave,
for better hours or better pay, better management at a better place,
and if retail has taught me anything, if people wanna go, you should let them go

[Chorus]
Nobody can replace you, but I’m gonna try to,
a silent resignation, God- that’s just like you,
you’re a no-call no-show kinda guy, doing just what you gotta do to get by,
and if you wanted to freelance I don’t know why you ever applied to a 9 to 5

[Verse]
And so I took bereavement, when your love for me died,
I was never any good at loss prevention, I keep you if I tried,
I’m overworked and underpaid, and you used me to boost your resume,
so it’s probably for the better if I lock up alone

[Pre-Chorus]
And you gave me a two-week notice,
even if you didn’t say it explicitly, you gave me a two-week warning, you didn’t have to tell me- I knew that you would leave,
for better hours or better pay, better management at a better place,
and if retail has taught me anything, if people wanna go, you should let them go

[Chorus]
Nobody can replace you, but I’m gonna try to,
a silent resignation, God- that’s just like you,
you’re a no-call no-show kinda guy, doing just what you gotta do to get by,
and if you wanted to freelance I don’t know why you ever applied to a 9 to 5

to a 9-5

[Bridge]
I don’t need to know
why you wanted to go,
just that you didn’t want to
stay,
but it’s okay
Because
you gave me a two-week notice,
you gave me a two-week notice,
you gave me a two-week notice,
you gave me, you gave me,you gave me...

[Chorus]
Nobody can replace you, but I’m gonna try to,
a silent resignation, God- that’s just like you,
you’re a no-call no-show kinda guy, doing just what you gotta do to get by,
and if you wanted to freelance I don’t know why you ever applied to a 9 to 5

to a 9 to 5, to a 9 to 5, hmmmmm
