"Better Things" as written by and Davies....
Here's wishing you the bluest sky
And hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme
And the very best of choruses, too
Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on the way

Here's hoping all the days ahead
Won't be as bitter as the ones behind you
Be an optimist instead
And somehow happiness will find you
Forget what happened yesterday
I know that better things are on the way

It's really good to see you rocking out
And having fun
Living like you've just begun
Accept your life and what it brings
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

Here's wishing you the bluest sky
And hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme
And the very best of choruses, too
Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on the way

I know you've got a lot of good things happening up ahead
The past is gone, it's all been said
So here's to what the future brings
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things

    General CommentHow appropriate that these lyrics were posted on 9/11. The mood of the song doesn't exactly match the sentiment but the lyrics most certainly do.

    General CommentRay wrote this for Chrissie Hynde as they were saying goodbye to each other at the end of their marriage. "It's really good to see you rocking out and having fun" was meant literally.

    General CommentI think it's a good companion piece to "Days". Where days is looking back and kind of in a somber tone, this song is looking forward and uplifting. I find it ironic that both of them were break-up songs.

    I also like the way when he sings ,"hoping all the verses rhyme" that they don't rhyme in that coupling. Ray, being the great songwriter he is, must have done this on purpose.

    General CommentI never realised this song was about Chrisie Hynde. Makes it all the more poignant.
