It's good to see your face in the morning
It helps me to face the day
I see you light a candle
As I turn away

I want you
I need you
In a way that confuses me but
It's good to hold you
But it's better when you're not there

It's better when you're not there
It's better when I don't care about the things you say
In the world's worst way
It's better when you're not there

But somehow it waits 'til the morning
I feel your eyes on me
It's such a perfect moment
It almost sets me free

I wanted to keep you
Hold you here while you're pulling away
It's good to know you

But it's better when you're not there
It's better when you're not there
It's better when I don't care about the things you say
In the world's worst way
It's better when you're not there
It's better when you're not there

It's good to see your face in a picture
It's amazing what I missed
It's always right in the moment
When you're colored by the kiss

I wanted to tell you
There are times when I think of your face
It's good to know you

But it's better when you're not there
It's better when you're not there
It's better when I don't care about the things you say
In the world's worst way
It's better when you're not there
It's better when you're not there
