You Can Do Better Than Me

  • We're starting to feel
    We stayed together out of fear
    Of dying alone
    I've been slipping through the years
    My old clothes don't fit like they once did
    So they hang like ghosts
    Of the people I've been

    It's like my heart can't take
    My fall in love every day
    And I feel like a fool

    I have to face the truth
    That no one could ever look at me like you do
    Like I'm something worth holding on to

    These times I think of leaving
    But it's something I'll never do

    'Cause you can do better than me
    But I can't do better than you Writer/s: BENJAMIN GIBBARD
