  • It's good to see your face in the morning
    It helps me to face the day
    I see you lighting candles
    As I turn away

    I want you, I need you in a way that confuses me but
    It's good to hold you
    But it's better when you're not there
    It's better when you're not there
    It's better when I don't care about the things you say in the world's worst way
    It's better when you're not there

    But somehow it waits 'til the morning
    I feel your eyes on me
    It's a such a perfect moment
    It almost sets me free

    I wanted to keep you holding in while you're pulling away
    It's good to know you but it's better when you're not there
    It's better when you're not there
    It's better when I don't care about the things you say in the world's worst way
    It's better when you're not there
    It's better when you're not there

    It's good to see your face in the picture
    It's amazing what I miss
    It's always right in the moment
    When you're colored by your kiss

    I wanted to tell you there are times when I think of your face
    It's good to know you
    But it's better you're not there
    It's better when you're not there
    It's better when I don't care about the things you say in the worlds worst way
    It's better when you're not there
    It's better when you're not there Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
