I never knew perfection till
I heard you speak, and now it kills me
Just to hear you say the simple things
Now waking up is hard to do
And sleeping's impossible, too
Everything is reminding me of you
What can I do?

It's not right, not okay
Say the word that you say
Maybe we're better off this way
I'm not fine, I'm in pain
It's harder everyday
Maybe we're better off this way
It's better that we break

A fool to let you slip away
I chase you just to hear you say
You're scared and that you think that I'm insane

The city looks so nice from here
Pity, I can't see it clearly
While you're standing there, it disappears
It disappears

It's not right, not okay
Say the word that you say
Maybe we're better off this way
I'm not fine, I'm in pain
It's harder everyday
Maybe we're better off this way
It's better that we break

Saw you sitting all alone
You're fragile, and you're cold
But that's all right
Life these days is getting rough
They've knocked you down and beat you up
But it's just a roller coaster anyway, yeah

It's not right, not okay
Say the word that you say
Maybe we're better off this way
I'm not fine, I'm in pain
It's harder everyday
Maybe we're better off this way

I'm not fine, not okay
Say the word that you say
Maybe we're better off this way

I'm not fine, and I'm in pain
It's harder everyday
Maybe we're better off this way
It's better that we break, baby

    General Commentaghh i love this song! to me, its about a bittersweet break up, someone wanting to help their lover, but they cant....they're like "it's not right, not ok" but then "life...knocks you down and beats you up but it's just a roller coaster anyway', hoping that she'll be able to manage by herself because things naturally will get better. sort of reminds me of "she will b e loved" a little...no?
