lyrics

I WAS BETTER OFF

I was known to be a man of focus
Knew exactly when, where, and why
Happy with the life I was livin'
Content to be just satisfied

I was better off
I was better off
Before I set my sights on you
I was better off
I was better off
Before I ever even knew what I was missing

Now I've had a sudden change of vision
My future doesn't seem quite so clear
I no longer see the rhyme or reasoning
In a life without you here

I was better off
I was better off
Before I set my sights on you
I was better off
I was better off
Before I ever even knew what I was missing

I really thought that I had everything
Since I met you, I've changed my mind
Now that I've realized all that love can bring
I wouldn't go back to that time

When I was better off
I was better off
Before I set my sights on you
I was better off
I was better off
Before I ever even knew what I was missing


I was better off
I was better off
Before I ever even knew what I was missing
