"Better Than Me" as written by Brian Howes, Michael Rodden, Austin Winkler, Lloyd Garvey, Ross Hanson and Mark King....
I think you can do much better than me
After all the lies that I made you believe
Guilt kicks in and I start to see
The edge of the bed where your nightgown used to be

I told myself I won't miss you
But I remembered
What it feels like beside you

I really miss your hair in my face
And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this
You deserve much better than me

While looking through your old box of notes
I found those pictures I took that you were looking for
If there's one memory I don't want to lose
That time at the mall - you and me in the dressing room

I told myself I won't miss you
But I remembered
What it feels like beside you

I really miss your hair in my face
And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this
You deserve much better than me

The bed I'm lying in is getting colder
Wish I never would've said it's over
And I can't pretend
I won't think about you when I'm older
'Cause we never really had our closure
This can't be the end

I really miss your hair in my face
And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this
You deserve much better than me

I really miss your hair in my face
And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this
You deserve much better than me
(And I think you should know this)
You deserve much better than me
(And I think you should know this)
You deserve much better than me
(And I think you should know this)
You deserve much better than me
(And I think you should know this)

    General CommentThis song is about a guy that broke it off with someone that he loved and endeared with all of his heart, but he lied and decieved her. So he let her go. Now after he let her go he realizes that she was his entire world, and would do anything to get her back. But he knows that it isn't possible. He knows this is a pain that he will have to live with forever, and that he will never have full closure.

    This song really hits home to me. This is very much the situation I had with the love of my life. I let her go because I thought she could do so much better than me. Now I have to live with that fact everyday....That I let my one true love walk way, and that there is nothing I can do to get her back.

    General CommentYou can hear the pain when the song is sang, it just makes me miss every person that I've had a bad ending to a relationshio with. Anyway, I think that this song is about him cheating on his girlfriend but she never finds out. He begins to feel guilty because he keeps lying to her and acting likes things are good (I think you can do much better than me
    After all the lies I made you believe. Guilt kicks in...) but he feels guilty so he breaks it off with her, probably quickly, she wasn't expecting it, so neither really had real closure, because he wanted to let her know the truth and she'll never know the real reason. And now he feels stupid for ending it and not coming clean. I really, really, love this song!

    General Commentmy boyfriend played this song for me. lol. he always thinks i deserve much better than him.

    i didn't focus on the whole aspect of "i'm gonna break up with you because i know you deserve better than me"... i focused on the "I really miss your hair in my face And the way your innocence tastes" part. and him dedicating a song for me was nice. so it's all good. ♥

    General CommentHe thinks that the girl is so perfect, and he himself is disgusting and wrong. He thinks she needs something better than him, because she's so great.
