Better Off Lyrics

You keep me in your orbit
Well, I know I'm a hard one to please
Give it too much importance
My love'll have you fall to your knees
I tell them this too often
Know better than to bark up my tree
Just for me to fall and leave
Nah, I'd rather...

    I believe it’s about being better off with someone who is unable to love themself and moving onto something better whether that’s a person or yourself or an animal. It’s about finding what you need. Being better off than you were before.

    it's about arianas complicated relationship with mac and his addiction to drugs and alcohol (which took part in their breakup). The song is talking about her escape from a toxic relationship and how she's realized she's "better off" being single.
