Little Jackie – Liked You Better Before lyrics

I liked you better before you knew me
You didn't smoke cigarettes
You didn't drink coffee
Drank moderately, now you're an alkie
You didn't even curse when I was a mystery
Back then, back when you didn't know me at all
I thought I caught a nice guy who caught my eye
You didn't have a care, you didn't have a clue
But seems I brought the worst out in you

One day I passed by your apartment
Thinking that I'd catch some girl
Kiss you goodbye with a lingering kiss
I know we broke up,
I'll get out of this faze
My imagination gets the best of me
You end up getting the rest of me
The obsessed, crazy, drama queen
If you know what I mean
Anyway, you're never there
You could be anywhere
On an airplane, maybe in a car
On a world tour being a superstar

I liked you better
When you didn't know no better
You didn't think that I was,
I was the antichrist
I liked you better
Before you got a stylist
When friendship bracelets sufficed,
But now your wrists are iced

I liked you better before you knew me
You didn't smoke cigarettes
You didn't drink coffee
Drank moderately, now you're an alkie
You didn't even curse when I was a mystery
Back then, back when you didn't know me at all
I thought I caught a nice guy who caught my eye
You didn't have a care, you didn't have a clue
But seems I brought the worst out in you

Five stitches of breaking up started with denial
Fuck, we were just taking off for a while
Thought it was permanent
Better get myself some anger management
Bargaining was the next faze
Gave my word that I changed my ways
I swear to God I'll be a freakin little angel
Please just stop putting me through hell
But he didn't buy what I was selling
I spent about a month on saturn
Dwelling on the past
At last it occurred to me
You didn't give a damn
Time to get with the program

I liked you better
When you weren't popular
Before your friends started calling me
(Na, na, na, na, na)
The psycho bitch
Trends didn't matter to you
But now you're all into the way you look
Your iPhone ringing off the hook
And my new ringtone
Is the theme of the Wicked Witch

I liked you better before you knew me
You didn't smoke cigarettes
You didn't drink coffee
Drank moderately, now you're an alkie
You didn't even curse when I was a mystery
Back then, back when you didn't know me at all
I thought I caught a nice guy who caught my eye
You didn't have a care, you didn't have a clue
But seems I brought the worst out in you

It's like night and day
It's like Jekyll and Hyde
I've created a monster
It's alive!
I miss the person I was
Before I became possessed
And the object of everything you detest

I liked you better before you knew me
I liked you better before you knew me
Back then, back when you didn't know me at all
I liked you better before you knew me

I liked you better before you knew me
You didn't smoke cigarettes
You didn't drink coffee
Drank moderately, now you're an alkie
You didn't even curse when I was a mystery
Back then, back when you didn't know me at all
I thought I caught a nice guy who caught my eye
You didn't have a care, you didn't have a clue
But seems I brought the worst out in you
