A Better Way Lyrics

by The Mavericks

We spent the night in a hobo town like a pair of runaways
We lit a fire and sang the songs we learned from yesterday
Settled down and built a house with our own sweatin' hands
What happened next, I'll never know or never understand

Finished with my working day and headed straight for home
I looked inside the bedroom door and you were not alone

Well, I hope you find a better way to get through my front door
The roads you take don't let you see I don't love you anymore
And if you find a broken heart somewhere along the way
Don't you dare pick it up, it'll mend itself someday

You thought my life was over now, well, honey, you thought wrong
I found myself someone to love, who'll love me all night long
All the things you left behind, I threw them all away
You never cared enough about the things I had to say

Well, I hope you find a better way to get through my front door
The roads you take don't let you see I don't love you anymore
And if you find a broken heart somewhere along the way
Don't you dare pick it up, it'll mend itself someday

Well, I hope you find a better way to get through my front door
The roads you take don't let you see I don't love you anymore
And if you find a broken heart somewhere along the way
Don't you dare pick it up, it'll mend itself someday
