If I had one wish, it'd be for you and all your friends who didn't like me
If I had one wish, it'd be that we'd had danced more at that apocryphal wedding
If I sound angry, I'm sorry, this body can only cry for so long
And if you want to blame me, then go on
I'm smiling now 'cause I'm smarter than you think

chorus 1

I'm smarter than you
I'm smarter than you think

Well I apologize for not telling you that my halo was cut from paper
sliced from the fibers that made up all the parts that we were together
and even though i miss you, I'm thankful it's obvious that this one was futile
so put your hands together and clap for
the painful choice you've made 'cause it's right

chorus 2

You're smarter than me
You're smarter than I thought
You're smarter than me
You're smarter than I thought

bridge

chorus 3

(I found out)
You're smarter than me
(The hard way this time)
You're smarter than I thought
(You were right)
You're smarter than me
(This was all wrong)
I'm smarter than I thought

    If I had one wish it'd be for you and all your friends that didn't like me
    If I had one wish it'd be that we had danced more at that apocryphal wedding
    If I sound angry, I'm sorry
    This body can only cry for so long
    And if you want to blame me, then go on
    I'm smiling now 'cause I'm smarter than you think

    I'm smarter than you
    I'm smarter than you think

    And I apologize for not telling you that my halo was cut from paper
    Sliced from the fibers that made up all the parts that we were together
    Even though I miss you, I'm thankful
    Its obvious that this war was futile
    So put your hands together and clap for
    The painful choice you've made 'cause it's right

    I'm smarter than you
    I'm smarter than you think
    I'm smarter than you
    I'm smarter than you think

    You are the narcissist
    You're everything you saw in me
    (Into the sea you fell
    In love with the reflection of yourself)
    You are the narcissist
    You're everything you saw in me
    (I felt the ocean's grip
    I swam away to watch you drift)
    You failed to see I'm smarter than you think
    I'm smarter than you think

    I'm smarter than you
    I'm smarter than you think
    I'm smarter than you
    I'm smarter than you think

    I'm smarter than you (I found out)
    I'm smarter than you think (The hard way this time)
    I'm smarter than you (We were right)
    I'm smarter than you think (This was all wrong)

    General CommentI can't believe there haven't been more posts on this song either. It's beautiful and definitely "rockier." Like how Head Against the Sky was compared to their old stuff. Cannot wait for the LP 3.

    General CommentEisley just released this song and i can't stop listening.

    it's definitely more rocky and her voice sounds like she really is angry and so emotional. it's amazing to listen to and you can almost hear how Sherri's feeling.

    i can't wait for the record! i'm hoping to buy a red vinyl record before they're sold out too. just a couple more months! :D <3

    General CommentI think the song is about moving on and knowing you're better off, even though it hurt for a while. I wonder if this is about Sherri's Ex husband Chad Gilbert, because she said something about how the divorce was inspiration for her musically and it devastated her.

    But I also think this song can be thought of as a song for an old friend, things went sour and they started hatin you, you try to apologize and feel awful about the ruined friendship, but then realized you were in the right all along, and you're better than that, and youre smarter than they think
