Poppe, Maddie - Things I'd Rather Do Lyrics




This whole break-up thing has gone on for too long
I'm not saying that I want you back
I don't wanna make this a desperate love song
I just have a couple things to say to you
I didn't know when to tell you because you're not exactly easy with handling the truth, well
I've had this feeling for a really long time
And I think I'll tell you now because the moment feels right

You make me wanna scream at the top of my lungs every time I see your face
I'd rather be stranded in the middle of the ocean or in the "other place" than with you
I'd rather be on a burning tightrope hanging on the edge of a cliff
I'd rather be mauled out by fifty tigers or trapped under ice a mile thick
I'd rather be alone on the road with a flat tire or lost at sea and tipped the canoe
There's so many things I'd rather do
Than be with
You you you...

It's kinda funny
Because I don't think you'll ever hear any of this
Because you, you blocked me on every form of social media that ever did exist
And you think you're cool because you hate my band, well
Well that's okay because I'm gonna find somebody who understands

You make me wanna scream at the top of my lungs every time I see his face
I'd rather be stranded in the middle of the ocean or in the "other place" than with you
I'd rather be on a burning tightrope hanging on the edge of a cliff
I'd rather be mauled out by fifty tigers or trapped under ice a mile thick
I'd rather be alone on the road with a flat tire or lost at sea and tipped the canoe
There's so many things I'd rather do
Than be with
You you you...

There's so many things that I'd rather do
Than to be with you
