I think I was better off before this all began
So clearly I can see lately that you don't know who I am
Everybody tried to tell me something that I never could believe
Stand back it seems so much different than it did in front of me
But I know

There's no good in lookin' back on yesterday
And wondering what could have happened then
You think you can give me what I want
You say, you say
I think I'm better off alone
These days, these days

Why should I put my trust in something that I never could believe
So one day you can find somethin better just to pack your things and leave
Loneliness is a friend for the moment but you won't walk out on me
I know

There's no good in lookin' back on yesterday
And wondering what could have happened then
You think you can give me what I want
You say, you say
I think I'm better off alone
These days, these days

I'm tired and I'm sick of waiting
Maybe I'll die alone
'cause I can't take another damn day
Of waiting here for you to come home to me
Yeah, yeah, baby, baby please
Tell me why

You think you can give me what I want
You say, you say
I think I'm better off alone
These days, these days
You think you can give me what I want
You say, you say
I think I'm better off alone
These days, these days
