I'm looking forward to another day without you
The way I see it you could never do what I do
I welcomed you with open arms,
You drove the knife right through my heart
So now I'm crossing out the pain that's been tearing us apart.

You were out of sight, now you are out of line
Went to your head, now you are left behind.
Let me go, can't you see,
You're just the next best thing to me
Here I go, honestly,
You're just the next best thing to me

I'm packing up my things and moving on without you,
As far as I can see you'll never do what I do
I'm pushing you away, living out my dreams that you tore down
Can't you just swallow up your pride
Admit to me, and finally drown.

I think you're in over your head,
Choking as the water fills your lungs
Can't you see to me you're dead?

You were out of sight, now you are out of line
Went to your head, now you are left behind.

Let me go, can't you see,
You're just the next best thing to me
Here I go, honestly,
You're just the next best thing to me
