"Better Do Better" as written by and Richard Archer....
You're back, sitting on my doorstep,
Ah yeah like nothing ever happened.
Telling me you're free and oh,
Can you see me again?

Yeah right, You've been kicked out-
Do you think I'm that stupid?
You said you're free but oh oh oh,
I get tired of you kid...

Oh, I couldn't eat for days,
I cried so much my face
Has never been the same...
And now you're back here with your lies.
I hope you realize...

You think I'm gonna take you back!
You'd better do better than that.
I'll tell ya what it's gonna bring,
Don't you ever ever come near me.

Let me tell you how I've been:
I've been hiding from my friends...
Hiding from the world...
Hiding from myself...

You think you'll come round here,
Start singing in my ear,
Better do better than this way,
Or give some reason why,
You'd better do better than that.

Your face makes me want to be sick,
Ah yeah it's a physical reaction...
You'd better leave because you see I
Can't, won't be loving my actions.

Oh, how I ever loved you...
So dumb, how did I ever trust you?
We'll do the deal after we are yeah,
When you're laid together.

Oh, I couldn't eat for days,
I cried so much my face
Has never been the same...
And now you're back here with your lies.
I hope you realize...

You think I'm gonna take you back!
You'd better do better than that.
I'll tell ya what it's gonna bring,
Don't you ever ever come near me.

Let me tell you how I've been:
I've been hiding from my friends...
Hiding from the world...
Hiding from myself...

You think you'll come round here,
Start singing in my ear,
Better do better than this way,
Or give some reason why,
You'd better do better than that.

I gave you everything I had girl,
But you had to try and take some more,
You went behind my back girl,
Cheated on me, I was the last to know.

Did everything we had girl,
Meant nothing to ya,
Oh I was such a fool...
Now you come crawling back girl,
Oh let me tell ya I am through with you.

Oh I'm back up off the floor,
And I won't get hurt no more,
I've been waiting for this day when
You'd be back here with your lies,
I hope you realize...

You think I'm gonna take you back!
You'd better do better than that.
I'll tell ya what it's gonna bring,
Don't you ever ever come near me.

Let me tell you how I've been:
I've been hiding from my friends...
Hiding from the world...
Hiding from myself...

You think you'll come round here,
Start singing in my ear,
Better do better than this way,
Or give some reason why,
You'd better do better than that.

Say something, say something.

You'd better do better than that!

    General CommentThe lyrics are slightly wrong, it should be 'I tell you how it's gonna be, Don't you nver ever come near me. '

    Love this song so much...

    General CommentAs well as the lyric mistake pointed out by butterflykiss theres another one- it should be "You better leave cos you see I can't, won't be blamed for my actions."

    Great song, really angry and bitter. Definitely reminds me of a few girls. Nice to have a song where the lyrics make coherent sense for a change instead of random lyrics just to rhyme.

    General CommentGod this song is great. I mean the whole album is. But the thing that strikes me as funny is how he cried so much his face has never been the same. God she did some damage huh?

    General CommentCould very well be the best song of the album.. for me it is, I think.. very catchy and nice tune..

    Lyrics are pretty good too, I like the "I've been hiding" part.. I think it's about a girl that's playing games with his mind..
