Every Time That It Gets Better, It Gets Worse

Lyrics

I think it’s better that you know
Why I won’t take your calls
I know we’ve been through this before
And every time we’ve worked it out
It seems to me what you call progress, I see as
Going in reverse
Every time that it gets better, it gets worse

You’re mean ’cause you
Don’t mean it when
You tell me that I
Can’t leave ’cause you
Love me still and
Promise it will
Get better, but
I know better now

I tried so hard
To ignore the way things are
Only now I know how bad the truth can hurt
With each new start
Comes another come apart
Every time that it gets better, it gets worse

You’re wrong ’cause you
Knew all along
It wasn’t right, but
You strung me along
Waiting for some-
One better to
Come along, but
I know better now

I tried so long
To pretend nothing was wrong
But this cycle seems more and more like a curse
Our off and on’s
Gone on off and on too long
Every time that it gets better, it gets worse

It’s been six weeks since I left her
At first I thought that it was better
Now I’m lonlier than ever
Wondering why I ever let her go
Now I need a way to get her back
Maybe I’ll write a letter
Better yet I’ll write a song and sing…

I think it’s better that you know
(I tried so hard)
Now you won’t take my calls
(It breaks my heart)
You know we’ve been through this before
(Our off and on)
And every time we worked it out
(Has gone on too long)

It seems to me, each time we think we’ve had enough
We split and think we’re better off
I think we’d do much better to think first
‘Cause every time we think it’s better
And we always think it’s better
Every time that it gets better, it gets worse
