Pearl Jam -- Better Man

This song's meaning puzzles me.  It seems like it is about a gal who appreciates her man, but then she is said to be lying...

What does that mean?

She can't find a better man?  Of course.  She is looking for a better man, but cannot find one.  She is not with him because she loves him, but because she cannot find a better man.

Pearl Jam has something of a reputation for the dark side.  So, if I am right, then the dark side here is that she will eventually leave the guy for the "better man".
