Lyrics

Better

Written By: c. Yarckin, J. R. Landry

Better
Did you see me fall away?
At what point did fate crumble to the ground?
I thought I found something to last forever.
Holding on with desperate tears,
I was screaming but you could not seem to hear me cry and now, I surrender.

Broken pieces all around

Better think of something fast.
Better off leaving with these last times
So you’ll keep remembering me.
Better take a look at what you had
Better figure out something the next time
When you’re still remembering me forever. Remember me forever

Tell me was it good for you?
Cause its what kept me glued to what I knew all along was going in the wrong direction.
I don’t think I gave up too early.
I don’t think life is long enough to go and waste it all on imperfection

Broken pieces all around

Better think of something fast
Better off leaving with these last times
So you’ll keep remembering me
Better take a look at what you had
Better figure out something the next time
When you’re still remembering me forever. Remember me forever

Running on empty always
I swim to the surface always
But the truth is always hard to take
In broken pieces

Better think of something fast
Better off leaving with these last times
So you’ll keep remembering me
Better take a look at what you had
Better figure out something the next time
When you’re still remembering me forever. Remember me forever.

Gratitude

Gratitude

I was broken down inside
And treated like a little child
Made to think its do or die
I was wrong and never right
You left me an imperfect smile
While putting purple on my eyes
And what I’ve come to realize
I’m sharper now than knife

Didn’t know if I’d make it out
I figured how, to ball it up, I wear it on my sleeve now

Thank you
I’m better off now
That’s my attitude
Thank you
For kicking me when I’m down
What do I owe you?
Here’s something for my gratitude

I’m coming out a better girl
Surprising when you burned my world
These ashes turning into pearls
Much better now than what they were
And from all this what I have learned
What you will get’s what you deserve

Thank you
I’m better off now
That’s my attitude
Thank you
For kicking me when I’m down
What do I owe you?
Here’s something for my gratitude

For a minute I expected something different
I know
You’ll never get it and that’s why you’re getting something else so
If you can get it up
I’ll do my best to shoot you down
And if you fall in love
I’ll leave you on your knees, yea

Thank you
I’m better off now
That’s my attitude
Thank you
For kicking me when I’m down
What do I owe you?
Here’s something for my gratitude

Everything You Said

Written By: C. Yarckin, A. Wesley, J. R. Landry

I can remember everything you ever said Like a broken broken record spinning in my head If you want me to I can play it back for you What’s that gonna do now? Cuz I won’t change my mind So don’t even try Well I guess I always knew it was too good to be true Everything that you said was a lie boy That’s the reason I’m saying goodbye You will never find another who will love you any better No When everything that you said was a lie boy And I’m tired of wasting my time It’s ringing in my head Everything that you said Don’t try to come around begging me to take you back Hope you know you lost the greatest thing you’ll ever have Nothing you can do I’m happy where I’m at And I hope you are too Cuz I won’t change my mind So don’t even try Now I don’t believe in you And I guess I always knew that Everything that you said was a lie boy That’s the reason I’m saying goodbye You will never find another who will love you any better No When everything that you said was a lie boy And I’m tired of wasting my time It’s ringing in my head Everything that you said Don’t knock on my door There’s nobody home I told you to leave it alone I’m already gone You already know There’s nothing real for me to hold on to I can remember everything you ever said Like a broken record spinning in my head If you want me to I can play it back for you What’s that gonna do now? Everything that you said was a lie boy That’s the reason I’m saying goodbye You will never find another who will love you any better When everything that you said was a lie boy And I’m tired of wasting my time It’s ringing in my head Everything that you said.
