Better Than You Lyrics

by Terri Clark

At a table for two with a romantic view
He said, "There's something that you need to know
I don't usually date, so if I hesitate
It's just that I'm taking it slow"

He said, "Darlin', I don't wanna hurt you"
As he gently reached out for her hand
She laughed as she picked up her menu
And said, "Mister, you don't understand"

I've been loved, I've been left, I've been wronged by the best
I've had hopes that were shattered in two
I've heard promises spoken, I've had dreams left so broken
There was no chance they'd ever come true

It ain't easy to see by looking at me
But there's no hell I haven't walked through
If you're worried, that's fine but this heart of mine's
Been broken by better than you

When dinner was done she said, "I had fun"
As they walked to her door, he smiled
He said, "It's only ten, could I come in?
Maybe we could just talk for a while"

She said, "Honey, I know what you're after
And as much as I'd like you to stay
Nothin' good ever lasted
When it gets started that way"

I've been loved, I've been left, I've been wronged by the best
I've had hopes that were shattered in two
I've heard promises spoken, I've had dreams left so broken
There was no chance they'd ever come true

It ain't easy to see but take it from me
There's no hell I haven't walked through
And I won't cross that line 'cause this heart of mine's
Been broken by better than you

No, I won't cross that line 'cause this heart of mine's
Been broken by better than you
