Maybe the love you won’t receive
Will lead me beyond that part of me
And I know it’s sad, but I agree
You gave it away too easily.

When all of the things you made me see
That lead me to this solemn decree
I ain’t saying she’s better than you, you see,
She’s just better than you for me.

So throw those hands up
I didn’t mean to drag you down
And keep that head up
It’s better than the run around

Maybe your mother won’t ever see
Half of the us become the we,
And I know it’s sad but I agree,
You could just leave so easily.

And all of the things you showed to me
That lead me to this solemn decree,
I ain’t saying she’s better than you, you see,
She’s just better than you for me.

So throw those hands up
I didn’t mean to drag you down
And keep that head up
It’s better than the run around

And later on, you’ll be grateful that
That I gave it to you straight away
‘cause honestly, I could have just said
These things happen every day.
These things happen every day.

Like all your men, set in the past
It’s better to leave without being asked
So tell me again you’ll let me go
Without saying things you already know,
Like “it’s over” and “you don’t know her”
But let me tell you honestly,
I ain’t saying she’s better than you, you see,
She’s just better than you for me.

I ain’t saying she’s better than you, you see,
She’s just better than you for me.

    General CommentI love this song! People should comment on it, because I think it describes a situation that's so common. He's talking to the girlfriend he just broke up with and he's trying to explain that the girl that he's leaving her for isn't a better person, but they're a better fit. He's trying to point out that it's better that he didn't lead her on or lie, but I get the feeling that it's still really really hard for her to hear. But that's kind of the thing that you want an exboyfriend to tell you, that he didn't leave you because he thinks someone is BETTER than you but that he just found someone who's better for HIM. I've never heard a song that puts this forth, so I was impressed with Donovan Woods.
