Patterson Hood Better Off Without Lyrics

I'm better of without her holding me down
Driving me crazy when she's not around
Better off without pacing back and forth
Taste of ocean water leaves me wanting more

And if salt is what she craves, why am I bitter?
She's so sweet, it rots my teeth every time I kiss her
And I'm better off in fifty ways
Why do I still miss her? Misty eye'd and tossed about

Thinking about things I'm better off without
Thinking about things I'm better off without

Guess I'm better off without all she was about
Her village swing so violently, it's tough to stand my ground
So tough to stand around pacing back and forth
Lonely is to wake alone at four in the morning

While she's off to better things, better off without me
I would only hold her down until she'll stop frightening
My skin is underneath her nails since she came on bound
Guess it's too late to turn around

Thinking about things I'm better off without
Thinking about things I'm better off without
Thinking about things I'm better off without
