lyrics

“boy, don’t you lie to me”, she said
“you only wanna love me cause the well’s run dry”
she’s got her hands on me
but i didn’t have the heart to tell her
that she’s half way right
and that she’s probably better off
with her boyfriend either way.

this is the honeymoon before the sunset
you’ve got me feeling good but i’m not yours yet
you’ve got another man, and that’s quite okay
yeah, you’re probably better off
with your boyfriend either way

i romanticize all my bad highs
you know, that’s not the type of lover
that you want in your life
you can lead me to your room
but you know i can’t stay
yeah, you’re probably better off
with your boyfriend either way

you only say my name
like a lie you can’t take back
i know you feel that heavy hold
of all the substance that we lack
well, i’m no better baby
i won’t love you like he can
and you’ve got better things to do
than hide the truth about where you’ve been

this is the honeymoon before the sunset
a blind euphoria, but we’re a bad bet
you should be home with him, not where you lay
yeah, you’re probably better off
with your boyfriend either way

take it back, every mark on my back
every stolen look of longing, you owe him that
take it back, every kiss on your neck.
“babe, i promise, this means nothing
it won’t ever happen again.”
