You've got some nerve,
and I'm a nervous wreck
and you're scared to death
These are fighting words I'm getting off my chest
God bless you and your secrets
You've got a way with words
but you really need to hear this

If things were better without me ever knowing the truth,
these ties will sever so long forever
I hope everything works out for you

Better the devil you know
than the devil you don't
You said it with such a straight face,
the kind it'd like to break

If things were better without me ever knowing the truth,
these ties will sever so long forever
I hope everything works out for you


Hey, I'm on to you
They say you've got a way with words,
but I could say a thing or...
First of all I know you're a liar,
you already burnt that bridge over the water
So let's get this story straight,
here's your last chance
You're lies can't hide your shaking, nervous hands
I saved the best shots I've got for you,
this is my best shot, don't move

If things were better without me ever knowing the truth,
these ties will sever so long forever
I hope everything works out for you
If things were better without me ever knowing the truth,
these ties will sever so long forever
I hope everything works out for you (If things were better without me ever)
I hope everything works out for you (If things were better without me ever)
I hope everything works out for you (If things were better without me ever)
I hope everything works out for you (If things were better without me ever)
I hope everything works out for you
