Better

Album: Thank You (2016)
  • Finally blew up in my face
    Crash and burnt to pieces
    You got what you want from me
    I gave you what you needed

    I was warned but fooled by charm
    And you deserve to be alone

    And I deserve better, better than you
    I deserve better, better than you
    I deserve better (I deserve, I deserve better)
    Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better
    (I deserve, I deserve better)
    Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better

    I used to cry to all my friends
    But they would say, "I told ya"
    Finally, I can breathe again
    The weight is off my shoulders
    I was warned but fooled by charm
    And you, you deserve to be alone

    And I deserve better, better than you
    I deserve better, (I deserve, I deserve) better than you
    I deserve better (I deserve, I deserve better)
    Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better
    (I deserve, I deserve better)
    Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better

    Let's talk about the word deserve
    Or talk 'bout the world deserves a queen (You queen)
    Let's talk about that four letter word love
    I think you deserve a king
    I think you deserve the world and everything in it
    And I try to go get it to show you I meant it when I
    Tell you I'm sorry, tomorrow I promise that I
    Try to better, I'll do whatever for mine
    And I ain't tryna be your friend's friends
    Or your quote unquote fake friend, that's why I hate friends
    I'd rather see you laugh to see you cry
    I'd rather see you lead and tell a lie
    And you ain't gotta say it, you deserve better

    I deserve better, better than you
    I deserve better, (I deserve, I deserve) better than you
    I deserve better (I deserve, I deserve better)
    Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better
    (I deserve, I deserve better)
    Tell 'em what they already know, I deserve better Writer/s: MEGHAN TRAINOR, ERIC FREDERIC, TOMMY BROWN, STEVEN FRANKS, MARIO MIMS, TAYLOR PARKS, TRAVIS SAYLES
