lyrics

VERSE 1:
Don’t act like you’re my love
You’ve done enough
Just let it fall away
You fit just like a glove
Without a match
I’m better off without you

I used to feel complete
Until you shared your warmth
But only gave me
Some protection from the cold
I’m better off balanced, If exposed
At least I know where I stand
At least I know
When I’m alone

CHORUS:
I’m finding that I’m better off alone
Better, better off
I’m finding that I’m better off alone
I’m better off balanced, if exposed
At least I know where I stand
At least I know
When I’m alone

VERSE 2:
Don’t tell me that you’ll stay
Then walk away
Without saying a word
Don’t let me believe that you are brave
If you can’t face a little sadness
Your strength is all in vain

[CHORUS]

BRIDGE:
This game you play
You say we don’t have expectations
And it’s the only time you’ll use
First person plural
I did not agree to this
Complete lack of agreement
I need a reason to stay
But you give me none

CHORUS 2:
I’m finding that I’m better off alone
better, better off
I’m finding that I’m better off alone
You can take your lack of expectations
and good luck on your next relationship
I’m fine without your unwillingness to try

Better off alone, better, better off
Better off alone better, better off
I’m finding that I’m better off, better off, better
I’m finding that I’m better off alone
CHORUS …
