a better day

 

i don't wanna be the one to have to tell you

(but i have to tell you)

i do not want you in my life

if it were as simple just to extricate you

as it is to hate you i would not have to tell you twice

doesn't matter cuz i do not want to know you

(did i ever know you)

sad is what it seems to be

all i know is that i wanted just to be you

not to love or free you and you just wanted to be me

i tried to say goodbye when we were only 17

i tried again at 22 then 25

but you would not release me i guess that's when i got mean

and now you hate me more and more

each day that i'm alive

i don't really care cuz now i see right through you

(you should dig that do you)

that's what you once said to me

so i'm letting go of ties no longer binding

and i find i'm finding i'm not who you thought me to be

now i only see your face in all the magazines

as memories of the real you slip away

i try to no avail each night to see you in my dreams

but when i wake without you there

it's just a better day

i don't really care cuz now i see right through you

(you should dig that do you)

that's what you once said to me
