The Better Half of Me

The Better Half of Me

I didn’t tell her I loved her
Nearly as often as I should
When she used to hold me so tight
Every single chance she could
I treated her love like a chore
There were other things on my mind
And sure enough
Those hugs became less frequent
With the passage of time

For a while she stood beside me
She swore there was no one else
But life can be a right hard road
When you’re walking by yourself
My inattention wore her down
And she finally found someone new
Who treated her
Like the angel that she was
And soon that angel flew

Chorus:
Be careful what you ask for
Cause you might get your wish
I ran her out of my life
And straight into his
How could I have been so blind
How could I not have seen
That the very thing I gave to him
Was the better half of me

Now they have a life together
She found the love she needs at last
They are toasting to their future
I am drowning in my past
So tonight I’ll just swim around
In a glass of sad memories
This sorry sight
Is all that is left of
The man I used to be

Chorus:
Be careful what you ask for
Cause you might get your wish
I ran her out of my life
And straight into his
How could I have been so blind
How could I not have seen
That the very thing I gave to him
Was the better half of me
