You say we're both little people and you like it that way
But in time I'm gunna put this body to shame (and grow old)
Wear a suit like my old man
Pack up all my things and get my ass out of town

She never liked it here. She was always so much bigger then this tiny town.

We've got it good
Whether you like this town or not
I know it's small but with a big head
it's bound to get hot
In the summer
But the summer is a bummer
If you can't leave
This pathetic excuse for a town

This town is small. And she did think it was pathetic. She thought there had to be so much more then Forks. She needed a big city. And she went and found one.



That holds all your memories
A lifetime of crushes and your broken dreams
To be anywhere but here
But baby anywhere is away from me

She had my baby and then left. She took Bella away from me. She took that sweet little girl away. And she took herself away. She took all the love I gave her and threw it away.



If you got it all figured out
Then what is there to shout about
This midwest town is gunna miss you
Just go ahead and work it out
But first come on and let it out
Scream it shout tell everbody how your gunna leave

Everyone knew she was leaving. Everyone knew Renee didn't like it here. She grew out of this town by the time she was thirteen. She only stayed as long as she did because I wanted her to. We were young. We were in love.



In about one year you'll have it all figured out
These big city dream are what you're about
Walking like stangers among these states
Only time will tell how long I can wait

So she went to Pheonix. And took Bella. I waited seventeen years to get to know my daughter. That wasn't fair at all. Renee and I never went to court about custody. We didn't want to get lawyers involved. We were friendly, we didn't need a judge to tell us how to share our daughter. But when Renee told me I only got Bella in the summer....

I really didn't understand why she left for a long time. But as the years went on, I knew why. I didn't want to leave. I liked my routine here, in Forks. It was easy here. Peaceful. I had a nice job. A nice house. And a nice personality. I thought that might be enough for her in the long run.

Away from me. Far away from me. In my eyes, a million miles away.

She did scream. She shouted. Told everyone she was leaving. First, her parents. Second, her friends. It went on from there until finally....she told me.



Me again oh so casually
Did you take the hit for me or the home team

Neither. She didn't take any hits. She dodged them all, leaving them to hit me.



If you got it all figured out

This midwest town is gunna miss you

And we did. We all missed her. Ecspecially me.
