  • I let you get away with thinking you're the cure
    I think I'm in too deep, it's time to pull the cord
    You like me more when you think, I'm getting bored
    I hope you're home the day I tear down the walls

    I won't settle, settle, settle,
    You are never gonna hold me down
    So toxic, you ain't nothin' but a prick
    I'm the best thing that never happened to you
    Never, never, never, you are never gonna live this down
    Life's too short, I can't fake it anymore
    I'm the best thing that never happened to you

    Don't you get sick of only hearing your own voice?
    Talk like you're so damn tough but you're just a little boy
    You like to think you've broke the mold but now I'm sure,
    You'll crack just like the rest when I break your fucking jaw

    I won't settle, settle, settle,
    You are never gonna hold me down
    So toxic, you ain't nothin' but a prick
    I'm the best thing that never happened to you
    Never, never, never, you are never gonna live this down
    Life's too short, I can't fake it anymore
    I'm the best thing that never happened to you

    I won't settle, I won't settle, I won't settle

    I won't settle, settle, settle,
    You are never gonna hold me down
    So toxic, you ain't nothin' but a prick
    I'm the best thing that never happened to you
    Never, never, never, you are never gonna live this down
    Life's too short, I can't fake it anymore
    I'm the best thing that never happened to you Writer/s: CAMERON HURLEY, JOHN FELDMANN, JORDAN ECKES, MICHAEL FERRI, ROBERT CHIANELLI, TAYLOR JARDINE, THOMAS SCHLEITER
