Better Off

Album: Sweetener (2018)
  • You keep me in your orbit
    Well, I know I'm a hard one to please
    Give it too much importance
    My love'll have you fall to your knees
    I tell them this too often
    Know better than to bark up my tree
    Just for me to fall and leave
    Nah, I'd rather just watch you smoke and drink, yeah

    Steering clear of any headaches to start
    And if we're being honest
    I'd rather your body than half of your heart
    Or jealous-ridden comments
    That come when you let in them feelings that I don't want
    I never let 'em know too much
    Hate gettin' too emotional, oh, yeah

    I'm better off without him
    I'm better off being a wild one
    On the road a lot, had to keep it a thousand
    So that I'm better off not being around ya

    Go on and face it, I'll never be ready for you (ready for you)
    I swear my love is a curse, make you handle issues (handle issues)
    Let's put them topics to bed and go fuck on the roof, just to say that we did it
    You keep insisting I listen to your proposition
    I dismiss them all, no offense, yeah

    Steering clear of any headaches to start
    And if we're being honest
    I'd rather your body than half of your heart
    Or jealous-ridden comments
    That come when you let in them feelings that I don't want
    I never let 'em know too much
    Hate gettin' too emotional, yeah

    I'm better off without him
    I'm better off being a wild one
    On the road a lot, had to keep it a thousand
    So that I'm better off not being around ya
    I'm better off without him
    I'm better off being a wild one
    On the road a lot, had to keep it a thousand
    So that I'm better off not being around yaWriter/s: Ariana Grande, Brian Malik Baptiste, Chauncey A. Hollis, Kimberly Krysiuk, Tommy Brown
