Alive Like Me – Better Off lyrics

I was never something that you made important
Every time I think of you I can't ignore that I’m
I’m better off without you
You won't get another chance to take it back
You left me with a choice now I have to act like I
I’m better off without you

There's always somewhere else you'd rather be
I can see it in your eyes and if history repeats itself
Soon I'll be treading water just to stay alive
I can't live like this
I'm too far from home tonight
I won't fight for it
Because I feel like I'm already down and out

You lost your self in your reflection
Once you give up on me
I hope you finally see

I was never something that you made important
Every time I think of you I can't ignore that I’m
I’m better off without you
You won't get another chance to take it back
You left me with a choice now I have to act like I
I’m better off without you

I can't live like this
It's hard to say you were the best thing for me
I can't live like this
And all along I should have seen this coming

Wish I could take back the words that I said
I swear to god I wish they never left my mouth

And maybe I'm just like you say
But maybe losing you made me
Point the blame x2 (Woah)

But now I finally see

You were never something that I made important
Every time I think of you I can't ignore that I'm
Not better off without you
I won't get another chance to take it back
You left, I made a choice now it’s clear to me that I'm
Not better off with you

I wish that I could have been there from the start
Because the day you leave you'll take all my heart
And I don't ever want to live alone another day without you

I wish that I never let this fall apart
Because the day you leave you'll take all my heart
And I don't ever want to live alone another day without you
