A-

This song is from the album FROOT(2015), released on Mar 16, 2015.
This song had a very different vibe from the rest of the song. The energy and the power felt a lot different. The production felt almost the same, but the lyrics and the power in her voice was really interesting. The chords used were great as well, it added a great feel to the song. The background vocals and the reverb on her vocals glued the performance and made it excellent.

[VERSE]
Em
You're just another in a long line of men she screwed
G
Just another in a long line of men she knew
D
And yeah she did, yeah she did what she wanted to do
A
Like all the boys before
A
Another dream come true
Em
It's a power, it's a power, it's a power move
G
And while I'm not quite sure what she's trying to prove
D
They all say she's got low self-esteem
A
So, why is she looking like the cat who got the cream
[PRE-CHORUS]
C                        D
But you, you can do better than

You can do better than that

I know you've been feeling sad

I've got no right to be mad

But you can do better than that
Em                              D
And I know that you're not to blame
D                         A C
You just got caught in a game
C                           Em
But you can do better than that

[VERSE]
Em
She's the apple of everybody's eye
G
With an angel voice, devil in disguise
D
Got a sour face like poisoned fruit
A
That the boys can taste 'till they're out of use
Em
And she'll network 'till her dreams come true
G
Even if it means getting into bed with you
D
Everybody's friend, does it ring a bell
A
I know a little too much, but I'll never tell
[PRE-CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
Em
Well, I guess it's just what humans do
G
Hook up with other people until it all falls through
D
And when it's over, they go out and try to heal their pain
A
Hook up with another lover, do it all again
Em
I'm not passing judgment on her sexual life
G
I'm passing judgment on the way she always stuck her knife
D
In my back ever since we were starting out
A
Suspicious from the start, I always had my doubts about you
[PRE-CHORUS]
C                        D
But you, you can do better than

I've got no right to be mad
C                            Em
But you can do better than that
Em                              D
And I know that you're not to blame
D                         A C
You just got caught in a game
C                           Em
