I hear it on the radio everywhere I go
They tell me I'm a loser to be alone
The silver screen and Seventeen say I'm supposed to be
2 not 1 in a lifetime of afterglow

Don't wait, don't wait
Hurry into another mistake

I'm taking my time, I know what I mean
I made up my mind, now I believe
It's better to be lonely

One look and I'm giving out my number
One kiss and I'm calling you mine
The next thing I know I'm going under
Why do I need that misery, I think I believe
It's better to be lonely

They used to say that fools rush in and I swear I've been
The fool that wanted someone else to make me whole
And I don't mind hanging out with me, I like the company
Someday I'll find someone who will move my soul

'Til then, 'til then
I'm not jumping in again

I'm taking my time, I know what I mean
I made up my mind, now I believe
It's better to be lonely

One look and I'm giving out my number
One kiss and I'm calling you mine
The next thing I know I'm going under
Why do I need that misery, I think I believe
It's better to be lonely

I'm not saying now or never
I just know there's something better yeah?
