[Verse 1]
You keep me in your orbit
Well, I know I’m a hard one to please
Give it too much importance
My love’ll have you fall to your knees
I tell them this too often
Know better than to bark up my tree
Just for me to fall and leave
Nah, I’d rather just watch you smoke and drink, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
Steering clear of any headaches to start
And if we’re being honest
I’d rather your body than half of your heart
Or jealous-ridden comments
That come when you let in them feelings that I don’t want
I never let ’em know too much
Hate gettin’ too emotional, oh, yeah

[Chorus]
I’m better off without him
I’m better off being a wild one
On the road a lot, had to keep it a thousand
So that I’m better off not being around ya

[Verse 2]
Go on and face it, I’ll never be ready for you, ready for you
I swear my love is a curse, make you head over shoes, head over shoes
Let’s put them topics to bed and go fuck on the roof, just to say that we did it
You keep insisting I listen to your proposition
I dismiss them all, no offense, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
Steering clear of any headaches to start
And if we’re being honest
I’d rather your body than half of your heart
Or jealous-ridden comments
That come when you let in them feelings that I don’t want
I never let ’em know too much
Hate gettin’ too emotional, yeah

[Chorus]
I’m better off without him
I’m better off being a wild one
On the road a lot, had to keep it a thousand
So that I’m better off not being around ya
I’m better off without him
I’m better off being a wild one
On the road a lot, had to keep it a thousand
So that I’m better off not being around ya
