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
AgainI 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 knowThat 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
AgainOh 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
