Better Man

Album: The Breaker (2016)
Charted: 34
  • I know I'm probably better off on my own
    Than lovin' a man who didn't know
    What he had when he had it
    And I see the permanent damage you did to me
    Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic
    I wish it wasn't four am, standing in the mirror
    Saying to myself, you know you had to do it I know
    The bravest thing I ever did was run

    Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
    But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
    And I know why we had to say goodbye
    Like the back of my hand
    And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
    A better man

    I know I'm probably better off all alone
    Than needing a man who could change his mind at any given minute
    And it's always on your terms
    I'm hanging on every careless word
    Hoping it might turn sweet again
    Like it was in the beginning
    But your jealousy, I can hear it now
    You're talking down to me like I'll always be around
    You push my love away like it's some kind of loaded gun
    Boy, you never thought I'd run

    Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
    But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
    And I know why we had to say goodbye
    Like the back of my hand
    And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
    A better man
    Better man

    I hold onto this pride because these days it's all I have
    And I gave you my best and we both know you can't say that
    You can't say that
    I wish you were a better man
    I wonder what we would've become
    If you were a better man
    We might still be in love
    If you were a better man
    You would've been the one
    If you were a better man
    Yeah, yeah

    Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
    And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
    And I know why we had to say goodbye
    Like the back of my hand
    And I just miss you and I just wish you were a better man
    We might still be in love, if you were a better man
