Better in the Long Run

  • Cheap red wine straight out of a coffee cup
    One more down to drink you off my mind
    Lord knows I've tried a thousand times to give you up
    But it's closing time and we both know why

    I am just too selfish I guess
    I know you're tired and restless
    It's no surprise we've come undone
    But I can't unlove you just because
    You say it's better in the long run

    We've been driving down this highway
    Now we're out of gas too far out of town
    Oh and here we are all tangled up and sideways
    You're all broken down, yeah I am breaking down

    I am just too selfish I guess
    I know you're tired and restless
    It's no surprise we've come undone
    But I can't unlove you just because
    You say it's better in the long run

    Oh maybe somewhere a little down the line
    I'll give a little better leaving us behind
    Maybe someday, oh I'll be fine

    And you'll move on and I will too
    But still I don't see getting over you
    Oh no, no

    I am just too selfish I guess
    I know you're tired and restless
    It's no surprise we've come undone
    Oh no, I can't unlove you just because
    You say it's better in the long run

    In the long run
    Ooh, in the long run
    In the long run
    In the long run Writer/s: ASHLEY MONROE, CHARLES KELLEY, GORDIE SAMPSON
