Better Things To Do
Carrie Martin
January 2005
©? 2005

Arriving LAX alone and I
Calculate the time zones and I
Wonder if you?re wondering
Where I am

And in the cab you?ll call to tease me
Saying come on back to New York City
And I?ll say how ?bout Tuesday
Just to hear you smile

But we both got better things to do
Me and you
So why not get your sleep tonight
And I?ll start getting over you

It?s true, how well you knew me
I hug the coast, you still blow through me
Don?t know if you led me on
Cause I?ve been following too close too long

Yeah absence makes a heart feel worse
So now I?m trying to be a stronger person
Not the girl you see right through
I?m not the one who?s gonna wait for you

We both got better things to do
Me and you
So you can get your sleep tonight
Yeah, I know we won?t get this right
Not again tonight

interlude

Another night might have stayed up writing
Folded up my words for fear of fighting
To be heard above the sounds of being reeled back in again

Not quite like my heart is breaking
Oh no it?s more like waking
From a pretty dream that I hate to end
But I can?t get back to sleep again

We both got better things to do
Me and you
So you should get your sleep tonight
And I?ll start getting over you
Yeah, you can get your sleep tonight
And I?ll get over you.
