Don't believe your story
No, that's not a friend to me
Wrapped in guilt
Hell, you're only seventeen
What's left to me when I don't get the truth you see?
That ain't luck
You want jealousy

Maybe I'm better off standin' alone
When you're givin' me shit on the phone
Baby, I'm tired of hearin' "I don't know..."
It seems halfway is a world away

Every sweet thing I say
I will always repeat
Knowing you won't believe me anyway
So why am I locked down in the backseat?
Given hate
It's a one-way street

Maybe I'm better off standin' alone
When you're givin' me shit on the phone
Baby, I'm tired of hearin' "I don't know..."
It seems halfway is a world away

I think it's time that I'm on my own again
You're comin' home smellin' like his cologne
Baby, you're apathetic and you don't even know
It seems halfway is a world away

Maybe I'm better off standin' alone
I'm tired of hearin' "I don't know..."
