When I woke up late,
I overslept into my life
So now it's 5pm
But to me it feels like noon time
I gotta get up, gotta go out
Like some weird dream
I just can't figure out

No one wants to see
A grown woman have to cry
But it's not far to fall
When on the dirt looking at the sky
But I lucked out because he didn't lie
When he told me he loved me, yeah...

You know I shutter when I hear your angry voice
You know me better than I know myself
You told me you'd love me forever, whatever that is
You better -
Cause you love me better than I love myself

I could have wrote that movie
About the teenage marriage that went bad one day
If we broke up, it would suck
But it'd make a good screenplay
But it's a love song because you're in my bed
I got the soundtrack and it's playing in my head,
It's playing in my head and it says...

You know I shatter when I see that look in your eye
Cause you know me better than I know myself
You told me you'd show me the ocean and give me the sky
You better -
Cause you love me better than I love myself

I don't know all the names
For the useless burdens in my soul
But I will lay them down and lay with you and let them go
Feel comfortable underneath my skin
Can't afford to lose this love we are in, this love we are in

I said...

Cause you know I shatter when I see that look in your eye
You know me better than I know myself
You told me you'd show me the ocean and give me the sky
I said you better -
Cause you love me better than I love myself... yeah...

You better, yeah...

I said now...

You better cause you love me better than, than I love myself...
