I see it in your eyes
You look so surprised
Two blue flames burning up with love
You finally met your match
No more holding back
Well I been waiting for this day to come
If I had only known

Chorus
You like me better when I'm leaving
Like me better when I'm going
Like me better unavailable
You like me better when I'm ticked off
Ripped up, engines on and I'm slamming out the door
Took some time to figure out
But I finally get it now
You like me better when I'm leaving

The minute that I storm out
You say you're reformed now
Baby it's high time you seek some help
Now we're on the couch
To pull those demons out
And own up to how you sabotage yourself
Cause I know you love me but

Repeat Chorus

I thought I was unlovable
I thought it was all my fault
I was oblivious to your twisted logic
But now I've got it

Chorus
You like me better when I'm leaving
Like me better when I'm going
Like me better unavailable
You like me better when I'm ticked off
Ripped up, engines on and I'm slamming out the door
You like me better when I'm leaving
Like me better when I'm going
Like me better unavailable
You like me better when I'm ticked off
Ripped up, engines on and I'm slamming out the door
Took some time to figure out
But I finally get it now
You like me better when I'm leaving yeah
