It's better
Oh so better
To be the bride
Running thru the door
After changing her mind

It's better
Far far better
To be the bride
Than the one she left behind
Cast aside
Into the wind

I hear you talk in your sleep
Speak in tongues
Wanna move away
Old friends you never see
And those promises

There are things you'll never tell
There are things I'll never ask
I tried not to learn anything today

It's better
Oh so better
She said to me--she said to me

It's better
A far far better thing I do
When sometimes
If I don't say I love you

I won’t say I love you
