Lyrics

  I gave you your last second chance

‘cause I was too scared to walk away

But, now I’ve given all I’m gonna give

And, I’m not too scared today 

And, yeah, I know I’m in for hard times

But, it can’t compare to what you’ve put me through

And even though I know I’ll be alone

I’ll take lonely over you

 

I’ll take lonely over you

Seems like the only thing to do

‘cause I ain’t gonna hang around

To see what else you put me through 

They say the devil that you know

It beats the devil that you don’t

I just don’t believe that’s true

So, I’ll take lonely over you

  

You won’t ever see my face again

Because I plan to disappear

And, just to make sure that you know I’m gone

I left a note taped to your beer

And, now I’m headed out to find me

I’m not on a search for someone else

I’ve been lonely for so long with you

I wanna try lonely by myself

  

Well, when you get home from work tonight, you prob’ly won’t believe I’m really gone

But, you better start believing, and, you better believe that I won’t be lonely long

  

So, I’ll take lonely over you

Seems like the only thing to do

‘cause I ain’t gonna hang around

To see what else you put me through 

They say the devil that you know

It beats the devil that you don’t

Well, I just don’t believe that’s true

So, I’ll take lonely over you

 

If I have to pick between the two

I’ll take lonely over you
