lyrics

You say you’re better off without me, that the writing’s on the wall
Well I've been walking on your tightrope, and you’ve been waiting for my fall

You say the grass is always greener, and the water's getting cold
But you got wishing well fever, and your story’s getting old

Oh you think you've got me all figured out

I’m not down to hold you up, that just ain’t enough
I’m not in to bail you out, that’s not what I’m all about
I’m getting over the hunger for the spell you put me under
I just can’t wait until you’re gone - and I’m better off

You say you’re better off without me and there’s nothing I can do
I'm just another disappointment, you're just another point of view

You say that times are changing, we’re like two ships in the night
But as you fade into distance, I can finally see the light

Oh you think you've got me all figured out

I’m not down to hold you up, that just ain’t enough
I’m not in to bail you out, that’s not what I’m all about
I’m getting over the hunger for the spell you put me under
I just can’t wait until you’re gone - and I’m better off

I don’t need another devil on my shoulder
I don’t wanna hear it over and over
You ain’t listening to anything I told you
I don’t need another devil on my shoulder

I don’t need another goddamn saviour
I don’t need another one of your favours
You’re not listening to anything I say here
I don’t need another goddamn saviour

I’m not down to hold you up
That just ain’t enough
I’m not in to bail you out
That’s not what I’m all about
I’m getting over the hunger for the spell you put me under
I'm getting tired of the lying, the truth you've been denying
I’m getting sick of the choosing, the game I keep on losing
I just can’t wait until you’re gone …. and I’m better off

I don’t need another devil on my shoulder (I'm better off)
I don’t wanna hear it over and over (I'm better off)
You ain’t listening to anything I told you (I'm better off)
I don’t need another devil on my shoulder (I'm better off)

I don’t need another goddamn saviour (I'm better off)
I don’t need another one of your favours (I'm better off)
You’re not listening to anything I say here (I'm better off)
I don’t need another goddamn saviour (I'm better off)

about

Goodnight Sunrise Toronto, Ontario

Led by the dual male-female vocal alchemy of keytarist Vanessa Vakharia and guitarist David Kochberg, Toronto rock band Goodnight Sunrise is an organized sort of chaos.  With a hard-earned reputation as an unforgettable live act through over 400 shows across Europe and North America since forming in 2011, Goodnight Sunrise reminds us that rock music isn’t a genre; it’s a community. ... more
