I wrote this song after a very frustrating conversation I had on the phone with the good people of "Apple Can't" regarding my iTunes library. Before I continue l should explain a few things. I am not your typical consumer of music. I am completely incapable of passive listening and have devoted myself over the past 15 years to maintaining a "Shuffle" I could trust. My iPod currently holds 10,066 songs and I put each and every one of them there deliberately after serious consideration. My iPod fucking Rocks. 

To be fair, up until this recent incident, I have enjoyed a reasonably productive relationship with the fruit that Jobs nurtured. True, by setting the bar at 99 cents and keeping 30 of those to himself per sale Steve effectively ended my long term career as a purveyor of songs, but at the same time one cannot ignore the great enabling effects that Garageband and now Logic have had on sustaining my habit. The Steve giveth and the Steve taketh away. 

But i digress. 

I needed to copy my iTunes library from my old laptop onto a new one before it bit the digital biscuit but something went wrong and I ended up with duplicates of more than half the songs. This, of course, could not be tolerated by my Type A musical mind so I called Apple Care for help. While they did show me how to shake the unwanted doubles, they neglected to inform me that the procedure would also cost me the original songs. When I called back I was told the only way to get the originals back was to go through the Trash and pull them out one song at a time......which I did.....all 6,024 of them. It took me almost 9 hours. 

I haven't bought a song from iTunes since. 

Oh yeah....and i did play in a band for 20 years...

lyrics

I don't want you anymore 
this time i know for sure 
gonna get back on my feet 
and walk right out the door 
coz i don't want you anymore 

i don't wanna cause a fuss 
but all our Gold is gone to Rust 
how we been getting on 
is just ridiculous 
no i am done with us 

AND I WISH YOU WELL 
IN HEAVEN OR IN HELL 
AND I'LL SEND YOU MY BEST 
BUT I'M DONE GIVING YOU 
ALL THE REST 

i don't wanna make a scene 
and i know this might sound mean 
but i forget where we were going 
and the places that we've been 
and i suggest u do the same 

now i don't wanna start a fight 
don't care who was wrong or right 
i'm not gonna ruin another Saturday night 
pretending we're allright 

SO I WISH YOU WELL 
IN HEAVEN OR IN HELL 
AND I'LL SEND YOU MY BEST 
BUT I'M DONE GIVING YOU 
ALL THE REST 

for what it's worth i've learned a lot 
some was good, and some was not 
you liked the cold and i preferred it hot 
and we gave as Good as we Got 

So please leave me now with this 
A final parting kiss 
Our troubles now are over 
no story left to tell 
So Lover I Wish u Well 

YES I WISH YOU WELL...
