[Chorus]
You probably think that you are better now
Better now
You only say that 'cause I'm not around
Not around
You know I never meant to let you down
Let you down
Woulda gave you anything
Woulda gave you everything
You probably think that you are better now
Better now
You only say that 'cause I'm not around
Not around
You know I never meant to let you down
Let you down
Woulda gave you anything
Woulda gave you everything (oh, oh, oh)

[Verse 1]
I did not believe that it would end, no (end)
Everything came second to the bando (bando)
You're not even speakin' to my friends, no (oh no)
You knew all my uncles and my aunts though (family)
Twenty candles, blow 'em out and open your eyes (eyes)
We were lookin' forward to the rest of our lives (yeah)
Used to keep my picture posted by your bedside (flash)
Now it's in your dresser with the socks you don't like (ooh)
And I'm rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin' (b*tch I'm rollin')
With my brothers like it's Jonas, Jonas (like I'm Joe Jonas)
Drinkin' Henny and I'm tryna forget (drank)
But I can't get this b*tch outta my head

[Chorus]
You probably think that you are better now
Better now
You only say that 'cause I'm not around
Not around
You know I never meant to let you down
Let you down
Woulda gave you anything
Woulda gave you everything
You probably think that you are better now
Better now
You only say that 'cause I'm not around
Not around
You know I never meant to let you down
Let you down
Woulda gave you anything
Woulda gave you everything (oh oh oh)

[Verse 2]
I seen you with your other dude (your man)
He seemed like he was pretty cool, yeah (yeah)
I was so broken over you (I was so broken) yeah
Life it goes on, what can you do? (Oh yeah)
I just wonder what it's gonna take (oh yeah, yeah)
Another foreign or a bigger chain (skrt)
Because no matter how my life has changed (no no no)
I keep on looking back on better days

[Chorus]
You probably think that you are better now
Better now
You only say that 'cause I'm not around
Not around
You know I never meant to let you down
Let you down
Woulda gave you anything
Woulda gave you everything
You probably think that you are better now
Better now
You only say that 'cause I'm not around
Not around
You know I never meant to let you down
Let you down
Woulda gave you anything
Woulda gave you everything
