I thought I knew you better than I knew myself, girl
I thought I found you hiding in the strength that's in your eyes
But now I see you burning all the bridges in your world
Now I feel you sinking in the quicksand of your lies

Can't you see that you're slipping away, oh
Can't you hear what I'm trying to say
(Better than that)

Better than that
You're stronger than that
You're worth much more
You're better than that
And you can't turn back
What's tried is torn
Better than that
You're stronger than that
You're worth much more
I'm telling you, it's killing you, its drowning you, its spilling you over,
What's tried is torn

I thought you knew how to chase away the demons of blind trust
I thought you knew now it's all about dictation, changed by choice
But girl, you're crazy, you're hanging onto reasons turned to rust
Horizon hazy; you've gone and lost the velvet in your voice

Can't you see that you're slipping away, oh
Can't you hear what I'm trying to say
(Better than that)

Better than that
You're stronger than that
You're worth much more
You're better than that
And you can't turn back
What's tried is torn
Better than that
You're stronger than that
You're worth much more
I'm telling you, it's killing you, its drowning you, its spilling you over,
What's tried is torn

I told you once, I told you twice, I told you baby
Now there's nothing more to say
I'm missing the girl I knew
While kissing the broken you
But it's not up to me

So don't look back, face up to the facts
And you can't turn back, you're better than that

Better than that, stronger than that, wiser than that, you're bigger than that, you're better than the devil
And he's telling you how, pulling you down, filling you out
But it's up to you...
