Sitting in the corner

Just watching me leave

You used to be the best thing

That ever happened to me

Now I'm gone, gone, gone

So out of your reach

Now I'm just the best thing that you'll never see

So baby, pack your bags

Pack your things

You're just an example of things to never bring

Back to mama, back to papa, back home

And baby, I just gotta say one thing

That I tried, tried, tried

I tried to be perfect

And then I opened my eyes and found

You're really not worth it

So now it's back to the basics

Of learning to love again

Again

I remember the first time

That you looked my way

Those three empty words, oh we

Said them each day

And now I'm supposed to say that you were

The one that got away

But that's not true

That's not true

Moving on, something new

What some people call memories

I call wasted time with you

All the bad times

It's a good time

To just walk away from you

So just know

That I tried, tried, tried

I tried to be perfect

And then I opened my eyes and found

You're really not worth it

So now it's back to the basics

Of learning to love again

Again

Oh and I'd admit

If I was wrong

But baby, this ain't a love song

Oh and I'd admit

If I was wrong

But baby, this ain't your love song, no

So know that I tried, tried, tried

I tried to be perfect

And then I opened my eyes and found that

You're really not worth it

'Cause baby I tried, tried, tried

I tried to be perfect

And then I opened my eyes and found

You're really not worth it

So now it's back to the basics

Of learning to love again

'Cause baby I tried, tried, tried

Tried to be perfect

And I opened my eyes and found that

You're really not worth it
