Half As Good As You

  • I'm sick to death of eating breakfast on my own
    Starting out my daily blues (hmm)
    I'm sick to death of spilling coffee on my phone (oh)
    Scrolling through pictures of you
    I'd like to say that maybe we could work it out
    But I know that it's no use

    If I ever find anyone half as good as you
    I think maybe that will do (oh)

    I kissed a stranger in the hallway late last night
    He was wearing purple shoes
    I asked him when he kissed me, could he close his eyes?
    But he just looked at me confused
    And people say my expectations are too high
    But I'm not asking for the moon

    If I ever find anyone half as good as you
    I think maybe that would do
    If I ever find anyone half as good as you
    I think maybe that would do

    Oh, I'm so sick of laying here
    So sick of counting tears
    Comparing everyone to you
    Oh, oh
    Oh, I'm so sick of waiting here
    So frustrated
    My suspicions are you're laying there and thinking of me too

    I learned the lyrics yesterday to all your songs
    There was one I couldn't do
    I think the lyric went
    "You'll miss me when I'm gone"
    But the chords, I was confused
    I'd ask you 'round and you could tell me where I'm wrong
    But then I know you'd just refuse, oh
    (Refuse)

    If I ever find anyone half as good as you
    I think maybe that would do (oh)
    If I ever find anyone half as good as you
    I think maybe that would do Writer/s: Tom Peter Odell
