Music and lyrics by Woody Jiang

lyrics

You're on your own again
Sitting at the bar with your new friends
And from across the room he tries to catch your eye

You weren't expecting this
And you don't normally go for guys like him
But he buys you a drink and says something that makes you smile

And he might not take you home tonight
But we both know it's just a matter of time
Yeah he might not take you home tonight
But we both know it's just a matter of time

Miles away from the you and I
And who can say we're not better off this way

Better off
Better off
Better off
Better off

I'm on the road again
I see her swaying in the front row perfect 10
And I can tell by the way she moves she like the way I rock

Ain't it just the way that it goes
You ride out the highs and embrace the lows
I pick up and leave but it takes everything I've got

And I might not take her home tonight
But we both know it's just a matter of time
Yeah I might not take her home tonight
But we both know it's just a matter of time

Miles away from the you and I
And who can say we're not better off this way

Better off
Better off
Better off
Are we better off

You could meet your husband and I could meet my wife
And we'd both be happy in our own separate lives
Chances are we'll stay apart and who can say
We're not better off this way

Better off
Better off
Better off
Are we better off this way
