Treat You Better

Lyrics

playI won't lie to you
playI know he's just not right for you
playAnd you can tell me if i'm off
playBut I see it on your face
playWhen you say that he's the one that you want
playAnd you're spending all your time
playIn this wrong situation
playAnd anytime you want it to stop

playI know I can treat you better than he can
playAnd any girl like you deserves a gentleman
playTell me why are we wasting time
playOn all your wasted crying
playWhen you should be with me instead
playI know I can treat you better
playBetter than he can

playI'll stop time for you
playThe second you say you'd like me to
playI just wanna give you
playthe loving that you're missing
playBaby, just to wake up with you
playWould be everything I need
playand this could be so different
playTell me what you want to do

play'Cause I know I can treat you better than he can
playAnd any girl like you deserves a gentleman
playTell me why are we wasting time
playOn all your wasted crying
playWhen you should be with me instead
playI know I can treat you better
playBetter than he can

playBetter than he can

playGive me a sign
playTake my hand, we'll be fine
playPromise I won't let you down
playJust know that you don't
playHave to do this alone
playPromise I'll never let you down

play'Cause I know I can treat you better than he can
playAnd any girl like you deserves a gentleman
playTell me why are we wasting time
playOn all your wasted crying
playWhen you should be with me instead
playI know I can treat you better
playBetter than he can

playBetter than he can

playBetter than he can
