Lyrics:

RUBY RED STILETTOS
By Daniel Brennan

(VERSE)
Now that it's all over baby,
I guess we'll never have children with each other
But still their faces haunt my dreams
Apparently, they take after their mother

When I caught you steppin' out,
I changed the locks on my house, and your name in my phone
Take your ruby red stilettos, click your heels back to the ghetto,
Singin' "there's no place like a broken home"

(CHORUS)
Goodbye baby
I'm done with you now
I gave it my best but it didn't work out
You tarnished your halo,
And I'm over the rainbow
I'm done with you now

(VERSE)
You were just a penny in the street,
Dirty and cheap
And I mistook your shine for something rare and fine,
But you weren't worth the bend in my knees

Sure there might be fish in the sea,
But for a girl like you, it's all catch and release
We partnered up to waltz,
We danced around your faults,
But now I'm burned out on seismology

(CHORUS)
Goodbye baby
I'm done with you now
I gave it my best but it didn't work out
You tarnished your halo,
And I'm over the rainbow
I'm done with you now

(WHISTLING SOLO)

(BRIDGE)
I lived in fear of a solo career,
And I was afraid of us minus you
But the fork in our path, revolutionized math,
By proving one can be greater than two

(CHORUS)
Goodbye baby
I'm done with you now
I gave it my best but it didn't work out
You tarnished your halo,
And I'm over the rainbow
I'm done with you now

(VERSE)
You're a cardboard cutout lady
They think you're deep, but only 'cuz you face them squarely
When I held you in my heart, you tore the place apart,
And so I sent you back to solitary

(INSTRUMENTAL OUTRO)

So I sent you back to solitary
