Neil Jordan – Better Than Revenge lyrics

Oh Brandon how could you be such a jerk?
You say you love me but you treat me like a piece of dirt.
I could've loved you till the day that I died
Stare in those beautiful eyes and enjoy your smile.
But then that day
The day my feelings started to go fade to gray.
When I saw you on the street making out with my best friend.
I kn-kn-knew it had to be do-done.

You cheated on me
You broke my heart
How did I ever believe you?
So I killed you and it was Better than revenge!

So you might ask of a girl like me
How did I kill that hunk so easily?
Well Brandon is the type who lets his weakness show
I took a baseball bat to his thro-ooh-oat.
And in his last breath he said
I never meant to hurt you
But to me he was dead
The moment that I saw him cheating

You cheated on me
You broke my heart
How did I ever believe you?
So I killed you and it was Better than revenge!

Woah-oh-oh-oh
Revenge is sweet
Woah-oh-oh-oh
But it's never good enough for me

Well Brandon he had it coming
Sure he was charming and good looking
But he was just like every other guy who would make me cry.
So I did what I had to do
No matter the cost

He cheated on me
He broke my heart
How did I ever believe you?
So I killed him and it was
Better than revenge

Oh oh oh
So much better than revenge
Yeah yeah yeah

Better than revenge

Oooh oh
