What a thrill
To see you lookin' like he's loving you right
Sweet relief
I can shake his hand and not try to fight
Cuz any man that makes you smile like that deserves all of the loving he gets
And a girl with a heart like yours deserves the best

Do what makes you happy
And love who sets you free
Is what I'd say to you if I was better than me.

But I'm not strong enough for cryin'
Mourning, moving on
Not man enough to come to terms that you up and gone
So I'll just stand here lying to myself, and trying to be
The man that you'd still love if I was better than me.

I don't mind
This sleeping in an empty bed
Learning to love myself
Yeah, I listened to what you said
And my head's a whole lot clearer without the smoking and the booze
I sure ain't sitting around here singing the blues

Spread your wings and fly
Set your sails out on the sea
Is what I'd say to you if I was better than me.


I don't need your love
I don't miss your kiss
I don't think about you often, just a little bit
And I ain't gonna hang on to this heartache
And I ain't gonna take it to my grave
Is what I'd say to you
Is what I'd say to you
Is what I'd say to you
