Bad is better than the burn
Some people never learn
Bad is better than the burn

I'll take the blame, it's my mistake
One heart goes free, one heart just aches
It's an easy kill within my range
I made the break, honey, you kept the pain

And yesterday means nothin' to me now, doesn't matter
I'll keep it hid, you'll live somehow

Bad is better than the burn
Truth is better than a lie
Some people never learn
Bad is better than the burn

I fished love's kiss from the wishing well
Wound up in heaven, stayed around for hell
It's a common crime to live this lie
I see no point after love has died

I'll be the one who said good-bye, oh yeah
And I'll take the heat for the tears you cry

Bad is better than the burn
Truth is better than a lie
Some people never learn
Bad is better than the burn, oh yeah

Bad is better than the burn
Or the hurt that's hidden in the heart
They say you pay with what you earn
Bad is better than the burn

Cold is the shoulder that turns away
Curses the man on Judgment Day
Damned by the brand done too soon
Crawled out of this house and howled at the moon

And yesterday means nothing to me now
I'll keep it hid, you'll live somehow

Bad is better than the burn
Some people never learn
Bad is better than the burn
Bad is better than the burn

Truth is better than a lie
Some people never learn
Bad is better than the burn
(Bad is better than the burn)

Bad is better than the burn
Truth is better than a lie
Some people never learn
Bad is better than the burn
Bad is better than the burn
