Oh interwebs lyrics, or 'How To Say Goodbye' from Nick and Norah is beautiful

I know, two posts about Nick and Norah in one day? Crazy! But I fell in love with Paul Tiernan's song and have been listening to it non-stop (the gloom/doom mood and the grey/rainy weather with this song on loop just makes me feel like in an emo montage...)

Anyways. So I looked up the lyrics and came up with these ones (read the last lines: they are HYSTERICAL)

"Living isn't quite the same
You said to me, it's runnin' away.
If you're scared or tired of what you're scared of
Why should you stay
You love to say goodbye
And always counted all the time 
'til he was free
to get up and leave
to learn how to breathe

Slippin' out to have a cigarette
with someone else that he'd never met
Ask her if by the way would you like to
run away and try to forget
Just not to stay
To leave without saying why

To get up and go
To catch the last train
To get in some car and drive out again
To never come back this way
Left to say: 

so long

so long 

[Thanks to Sally J. for lyrics]

[Thanks to Kara Kalinowski for corrections]"
I'm guessing neither Kara nor Sally speak French? Or is "ovwar" the new "Au Revoir"?
