Just walk on out the door it's all over
Forgiving you is just a waste of time
I don't believe that I'll live to regret it
'Cause you're ancient history to this heart of mine

So many times I've heard the same old story
Any fool can learn to read between the lines
And this time honey you've burned all your bridges
You're ancient history to this heart of mine

I've marked you down as just another lonely page
In the book of heartaches that you'll leave behind
'Cause I've found out I'm better off without you
You're ancient history to this heart of mine
I've marked you down
