"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 Commentto me the best song on the cd! Means alot to me, mostly in the fact that i wanted to leave my gf cause i thought she deserved better than me, but i regret it alot. I always seem to think about it still, and this song hits me.

    General CommentThis song is just beautiful. It's like, even though he loves her so much and can't live without her, he's telling her to find someone else, that's so sweet.

    Even though this isn't the kind of song I'd play for my girlfriend, it's just a really cute love song.

    Hinder's an amazing band.

    General CommentThis song speaks a lot. It's about someone who really loved someone, and now they're over, but he still really loves her. And misses her. And loves her.
    My ex sent this song to me, and i couldn't stop crying.
    It does really mean a lot...

    General CommentI think he was not truthful to his girl and he started to feel gulity and that made him think that he wasnt good enough for her; so he broke it off. Now, he feels even worse becuause he misses her so much.

This song is about a guy who breaks up with his girlfriend, because he thinks she is way too good and deserves better then him because he is obviously doing somethin wrong, and he is still in love with her!! Sad song and is the chase in a lot of realationships!
