lyrics

I left thirty-five bucks and some change for the gas bill
I left your questions dangling on the phone
I got a pretty good head start, had to convince my reluctant heart
That it's better off alone

Filled that sweet dog's bowl with cool water
Checked to see which way the wind was blowin'
I gave my self a good pep talk, then I just began to walk
'Cause I'm better off alone

Then I see you comin' home and calling for me
I can see your disbelief in my mind's eye
It takes everything I got not to call and say pick me up
When I see you hold your head and start to cry

Guess I'll head west, maybe Taos or Tucson
I'll start out fresh where my name isn't known
Did I bite more than I can chew, is this right for me and you?
Are we better off alone?

'Cause I see you comin' home and calling for me
I can see your disbelief in my mind's eye
It takes everything I got not to call and say pick me up
When I see you hold your head and start to cry

Take a deep breath, take the next step and keep moving
Don't look back, stay on track, in the zone
I gotta see this through, it's too long overdue
It's time that coup was flown
'Cause I'm better off alone
I'll be better off alone
