At a quarter to midnight she was pacing the floor, 
Asking herself, 'What am I loving him for? 
He's been out on the town six nights in a row, 
If this is how its gonna be, I'd be better off alone'. 
As she walked to her car the night was cold and still, 
She thought to herself, 'I'll drive up to Lover's Hill 
And I'll tell each and every star how this man has done me wrong, 
And I'm sure they'll agree I'd be better off alone'. 
Mmmmmm, better off alone. 
He was closing the store as the clock was striking twelve, 
He'd been working extra hours, he was proud of himself. 
To surprise her with a ring, he'd worked his fingers to the bone, 
He joked to his boss, 'I'd be better off alone'. 
Now the road to his house went right by Lover's Hill, 
When he saw her car parked there, well his heart, it just stood still. 
'What could she be doing? God, I hope I'm wrong, 
If she's there with someone else, I'd be better off alone'. 
Mmmmmm, better off alone. 
Mmmmmm, better off alone. 
He parked his car beside her, got out and cut the lights, 
She rolled down her window and looked up in surprise. 
When he saw that she'd been crying, he said 'Babe, what's going on'? 
And through her tears she whispered, 'I'd be better off alone'. 
Then he kissed her through the window, and wiped away her tears, 
Told her 'bout his secret, and she told him 'bout her fears. 
He said, 'We'll get your car tomorrow, come on, I'll drive you home. 
The way that I'm feeling, we'd be better off alone'. 
Mmmmmm, better off alone. 
Mmmmmm, better off alone. 
Mmmmmm, better off alone. 
Mmmmmm, better off alone.
