I Wanna Get Better
Bleachers

Lyrics

Hey, I hear the voice of a preacher from the back room
calling my name, and I follow just to find you.
I trace the faith to a broken down television and put on the weather.
And I've trained myself to give up on the past 'cause I frozen time between hearses and caskets.
Lost control when I panicked at the acid test.
I wanna get better.
While my friends were getting high and chasing girls down parkway lines I was losing my mind.
Because the love, the love, the love, the love, the love that I gave,
wasted on a nice face.
In a blaze of fear I put a helmet on a helmet,
counting seconds through the night and got carried away.
So now I'm standing on the overpass screaming at the cars, 'Hey! I wanna get...'
I didn't know I was lonely 'til I saw your face.
I wanna get better,
better, better, better.
I wanna get...
I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change.
I wanna get better,
better, better, better.
I wanna...
I go up to my room and there's girls on the ceiling.
Cut out their pictures and I chase that feeling of an eighteen year old who didn't know what loss was.
Now I'm a stranger.
And I miss the days of a life still permanent,
mourn the years before I got carried away.
So now I'm staring at the interstate
screaming at myself,
'Hey! I wanna get...'
I didn't know I was lonely 'til I saw your face.
I wanna get better,
better, better, better.
I wanna get...
I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change.
I wanna get better,
better, better, better.
I wanna get...
Better, 'cause I'm sleeping in the back of a taxi.
I'm screaming from my bedroom window
even if it's gonna kill me.
Woke up this morning,
early before my family,
from this dream where she was trying to show me how a life can move from the darkness.
She said to get better.
So I put a bullet where I shoulda put a helmet and I crash my car 'cause I wanna get carried away.
That's why I'm standing on the overpass screaming at myself, 'Hey! I wanna get...'
I didn't know I was lonely 'til I saw your face.
I wanna get better,
better, better, better.
I wanna get...
I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change.
I wanna get better,
better, better, better.
I wanna get bettter.
