lyrics

I hope that you find what you're looking for
But I don't think that I'm what you're looking for
And I didn't want to write this song about you
You don't know how I hoped my friends were wrong about you

And it was tale as old as time, beauty and the best laid plans
Of mine that I lay to rest
And I don't think its such a crime, but I wish that you'd confessed
That you liked me better when you knew me less

And that's alright darling, I've had worse
Yeah I'll survive darling, I've had worse
It's just a footnote in the book, it's not a chapter or a verse
It's not the end of the universe
I've had worse

And there's no regret, you can save your sympathy
Since we met, darling I've been talking you into me
And you don't know I hoped my friends were wrong about you
They said "you'll only end up writing songs about her"

And it was tale as old as time, beauty and the best laid plans
Of mine that I lay to rest
And it happens all the time, honey I'd suggest
You just liked me better when you knew me less

And I know there's untouched hearts out there waiting
Like freshly fallen snow upon the drive
To bear the scars forever of your footprints
Folks who won't make it out of loving you alive
But me, I knew a girl like you, and I survived

And it was tale as old as time, beauty and the best laid plans
Of mine that I lay to rest
You'd have saved us both some time honey if you'd just confessed
That you liked me better when you knew me less
I think you liked me better when you knew me less
And when you knew me better you just liked me less
