I move on like a sinner's prayer Letting go like a levee breaks Walk away as if I don't care Learn to shoulder my mistakes I'm built to fade like your favorite song I get reckless when there's no need Laugh as your stories ramble on Break my heart but it won't bleed My only friends are pirates, it's just who I am I'm better as a memory than as your man
I'm never sure when the truth won't do I'm pretty good on a lonely night I move on the way a storm blows through I never stay, but then again, I might I struggle sometimes to find the words Always sure until I doubt Walk a line until it blurs Build the walls too high to climb out I'm honest to a fault, it's just who I am I'm better as a memory than as your man
I see you lean in, you're bound to fall I don't wanna be that mistake I'm just a dreamer, nothing more You should know it before it gets too late
'Cause good-bye's are like a roulette wheel You never know where they're gonna land First you're spinning, then you're standing still Left holding a losing hand One day you're gonna find someone Right away, you'll know it's true That all of your seeking's done Was just a part of the passing through Right there in that moment You'll finally understand That I was better as a memory than as your man Better as a memory than as your man

When "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" climbed to #1 on the Hot 100, Katy Perry became the first woman to send five songs from one album to the top of the charts. The four previous chart-toppers from her Teenage Dream set were "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework"; and, "E.T."
"Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" describes a time in Rufus Wainwright's life when he found himself hungover and pounding chocolate milk to feel better. It didn't work, so he smoked a cigarette, which is when he realized his addictive personality could be a problem.
