Today I am signing those papers
Divorcing you and marrying me
Ridding myself of your blatant disregard for my mental and emotional sanity
Bidding farewell to keeping up appearances to people who are keeping up appearances
Saying so long to separate bedrooms, broken promises, icy silence 
that lasts too long and cold stares that pierce the soul
NO more hot tempers or angry words & meaningless apologies
Yes, today we is over & I can truly begin
So sign the papers! sign the papers! sign the papers!
Today I pledge "til death us part" to me, myself & I
NO more slow death, No! today I choose to live, live, live
Today, I am signing those papers
Divorcing you because I am in love with me
