Satanic Surfers – Better Off Today lyrics

It was on the tip of her tongue
But she did not say a word
Why did she sometimes take shit
That she did not deserve?
She wore a smile on her face
As a disguise
To hide the tears
In her eyes
And she just let the time go by

She'd turn away
So that no one could see her sad
Where had the love gone
That they once had?
She only cried
When she was alone
When her husband and the children
Were not home
And she just let the years go by

But one day she had enough
Packed her things
Went out the door
I've seen the pictures
Of when she was young
Of the happy girl she was before
She met the man of her dreams
Fell in love and suddenly
She found herself in a situation
She thought she'd never be

But I (I)
I know that she's better off today

All that time
All those years
So little joy
And too many tears
All the sacrifice
That she had made for him
All the things she'd given up
Just to please that man
But now that she is on her own
She can smile again
Just like the happy girl
That she once was

(she left a note
For her husband at the phone
It said:
I hate your soul and I'm leaving on my own
