WORDS

BETTER DAYS

No matter what you say to me, it all sounds the same when I leave.

I can’t have your sadness on my hands. I’m doing the best that I can.

 

And I don’t care you’re not a little girl anymore, baby.

You say you can’t believe the things I’m saying.

Oh no...

 

Who said anything at all?

 

Well, push comes to shove and the room heats up

She stops me with fingers to lips.

I feel like my whole life is on trial. My body is under the whip.

 

Can’t you see the way we’re compromising, baby?

And I’m just trying to clear the air a little.

 

Who said anything at all?

...it’s just one kiss. I want it forever...

 

I’m pounding my head against the rocks. You can’t make your mind up.

I hope it’s not over once again. I can’t even stand up. 

Your claws are showing. My blood is flowing.

 

So don’t hold your breath for better days. 

Guess I’m not much comfort to you.

I’m not connecting things too well. I doubt you’ll be here when 

I do.

 

One of these days we’re going to laugh about this, baby.

Till then I just repeat the same tired bullshit.

Oh no...

 

Who said anything at all?

...it’s just one kiss. I want it forever...
