  • I'm sorry but did I never mention
    I'm better off with you
    ‘Coz now I think it's time that you understood
    We're better off as two

    Ever since we met we've never been too clear
    All our insecurities turn up in all our fears
    And how we've tried to make our problems disappear
    Never searching hard enough to find only more tears

    That's why we are bound
    The reason we are joined
    ‘Coz we are always trying to be strongest
    At our weakest points

    I'm sorry but did I never mention
    I'm better off with you
    ‘Coz now I think it's time that you understood
    We're better off as two

    I know it gets too much sometimes
    When we're both not in tune
    Singing to a different song, breaking us both in two
    Then we start again
    All the mistakes that we've made
    Now we work in harmony with notes that never stray

    ‘Coz we are always trying to be
    Strongest at our weakest points

    I'm sorry but did I never mention
    I'm better off with you (better off with you)
    ‘Cause now I think it's time that you understood
    We're better off as two

    Limiting ourselves has never worked too well
    Boundaries never kept but always making more, but still
    We have made it far in the space of time
    Being on our own won't work so why not just be mine

    I'm sorry but did I never mention
    I'm better off with you
    ‘Coz now I think it's time that you understood
    We're better off as two

    I'm sorry but did I never mention
    I'm better off with you
    ‘Coz now I think it's time that you understood
    We're better off as two
