"Better In The Long Run" as written by Charles Kelley, Gordie Sampson and Ashley Monroe....
Cheap red wine straight out of a coffee cup
One more down to drink you off my mind
Lord knows I've tried a thousand times to give you up
But it's closing time and we both know why

I am just too selfish I guess
I know you're tired and restless
It's no surprise we've come undone
But I can't unlove you just because
You say it's better in the long run

We've been driving down this highway
Now we're out of gas too far out of town
Oh and here we are all tangled up and sideways
You're all broken down, yeah I am breaking down

I am just too selfish I guess
I know you're tired and restless
It's no surprise we've come undone
But I can't unlove you just because
You say it's better in the long run

Oh maybe somewhere a little down the line
I'll give a little better leaving us behind
Maybe someday, oh I'll be fine

And you'll move on and I will too
But still I don't see getting over you
Oh no, no

I am just too selfish I guess
I know you're tired and restless
It's no surprise we've come undone
Oh no, I can't unlove you just because
You say it's better in the long run

In the long run
Ooh, in the long run
In the long run
In the long run

    My InterpretationYou can't unlove someone. It takes time and sometimes alcohol drenched nights alone to get over that person. Although you know one day you will be over them, right now it feels as if you will never stop loving them and wanting them.
