Better Off Without You

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Brand New Dance (1990).

(Marshall Chapman/Dennis Walker/Fontaine Brown)

Room 16, the Palms Motel
Now I can rest behind that door
My life with you's become a living hell
Don't wanna live like that no more
And whatever it will take
I will do to make this final break.

Yeah, better off without you
Better off without you
Better off without you in my life.

So I'll unpack my bag
And kick off these old shoes
This room is a good as anyplace I've ever been
For lookin' at the truth
Now it's all so clear to me
What a blind man could plainly see.

Yeah, better off without you
Better off without you
Better off without you in my life.

Oh, God, here comes the tears
I'm gonna stay right here
I'll cry. I've cried before
But I won't go back no more.

Looks like a change in the weather
I can hear it start to rain
I hope it's not too long this time
Before the sun comes out again
But if it rains forever
I will still be better off.

Yeah, better off without you
Better off without you
Better off without you in my life...
