Typically, the person who gets broken up with feels blindsided in the wake of a failed relationship. The person who does the breaking up is in control, knows what they want, and is able to move on easily. But that isn’t the case in Walker Hayes‘ poppy break-up song “You Broke Up With Me.”
He has no trouble moving on and that may be the problem. No one likes to see a former significant other better off without us.
Woah, girl, simmer on down a notch
Ain’t nobody making you watch me get my forget you on
No girl, can’t touch my good as gold
I know it’s difficult to see me on a roll
But hey, you broke up with me
Yeah, what can I say babe, you broke up with me
We all can only hope to be so easy going after a break-up.
