BETTER THAN THAT

 

 

1st Verse:

 

You're just another in a long line of men she screwed,

Just another in a long line of men she knew,

And yeah she did, yeah she did what she wanted to do,

Like all the boys before,

Another dream come true,

It's a power, it's a power, it's a power move,

And while I'm not quite sure what she's trying to prove,

They all say she's got low self-esteem,

So, why is she looking like the cat who got the cream,

But you, you can do better than,

You can do better than that...

 

Chorus:

 

I know you've been feeling sad,

I've got no right to be mad,

But you can do better than that,

And I know that you're not to blame,

You just got caught in a game,

But you can do better than that,

Better than that,

Better than that...

 

2nd Verse:

 

She's the apple of everybody's eye,

With an angel voice, devil in disguise,

Got a sour face like poisoned fruit,

That the boys can taste 'till they're out of use,

And she'll network 'till her dreams come true,

Even if it means getting into bed with you,

Everybody's friend, does it ring a bell,

I know a little too much, but I'll never tell,

But you, you can do better than,

You can do better than that...

 

Chorus:

 

I know you've been feeling sad,

I've got no right to be mad,

But you can do better than that,

And I know that you're not to blame,

You just got caught in a game,

But you can do better than that,

Better than that,

Better than that...

 

Bridge:

 

Well, I guess it's just what humans do,

Hook up with other people until it all falls through,

And when it's over, they go out and try to heal their pain,

Hook up with another lover, do it all again,

I'm not passing judgment on her sexual life,

I'm passing judgment on the way she always stuck her knife,

In my back ever since we were starting out,

Suspicious from the start, I always had my doubts about you,

But you, you can do better than,

You can do better than that...

 

Final-Chorus:

 

I know you've been feeling sad,

I've got no right to be mad,

But you can do better than that,

And I know that you're not to blame,

You just got caught in a game,

But you can do better than that,

Better than that,

Better than that...
