"Better Than This" as written by Steve Power, Guy Antony Chambers and Matthew James Sargeant....
The more I look
The more I find it hard to see
I'm uncultured
But I'm not quite sure what that means
Why bring me down
And complicate
You take my words
But then you hear them a different way
When we're talking
But I'm not quite sure what to say
We're talking now but is it too late
Who's listening now
Why won't you

Find me
And show me
What do you want from
There's gotta be better than this
I don't want to leave you
But maybe I need to
There's gotta be better than this
But we'll never know

Do you remember when we talked
For hours on end
Just being stupid
But at least we didn't pretend
Your smile helped me
To find my way
Who's listenin' now
Why won't you

Find me
And show me
What do you want from
There's gotta be better than this
I don't want to leave you
But maybe I need to
There's gotta be better than this
But we'll never know

I'll dream this away
And come back another day
When I'm less afraid
Of it all

Find me
And show me
What do you want from
There's gotta be better than this
I don't want to leave you
But maybe I need to
There's gotta be better than this
But we'll never know x 3

    General Commentquiffporn, im gonna get a few stuff off my chest.
    Firstly: you have the maturity of a fruit fly
    secondly: WHY THE HELL R U SO OBSESSED
    thirdly:why do you disrespect other peoples views?
    FOURTHY: you comment on my use of capitals and puncuation, how sad is that?
    fifthly:i may be immature but then, im problies way younger than you.

    good charlotte, yes r cool, i admit, but what make them better in ur opinion. what have busted done to you, uve called them cock suckers, that they clog up the airwaves, that they should rot in hell, blahdety blah.....BUT, uve never said why you think this. i reckon you have no life so you have to make a vendetta against some innocent pop band so get your kicks outta life. in the name of buddha, why do you bother being you if you are a sanctamonius little creep?

    General CommentBusted are not just a pile of crap, they are a puss filled cancer, which is slowing down the world and the sooner they all take a swan dive out of a window, onto a busy road, the better.

    General CommentThis coming from the egotistical little idiot that is you. If you hate busted so much, then why the hell come on to a busted lyrics page, and moan about them.

    Matt wrote this song about his girlfriend getting death threats, so, shut the hell up until you understand what the hell he has been through.

    And I'd like to see you try and do a better job than what busted do. They've got the influence of Punk and Rock, so younger kids read what the listen too, then go out and listen to it... do you know how many people have listened to Blink, Greenday, Deftones and Biffy Clyro because of Busted... way more than you could ever influence.

    Go ahead, call me whatever you want... you know what... I wont give a shit, I respect what Busted (and so do a lot of people, even my boyfriend, who is in a Punk band) do for Rock and Punk. so, shut, the hell up

    General CommentI'm not going to call you anything, it is obvious to anyone reading this, how stupid you are, without me needing to point it out.

    Let's just get this straight, ANYONE could do a better job than Busted.

    "Do you know how many people have listened to Blink, Greenday, Deftones and Biffy Clyro because of Busted?" - no, do you?

    "... way more than you could ever influence." - and how exactly have I tried to influence anyone?

    I really couldn't give two shits what this crappy song is about, the fact is, it is terrible.

    Busted are a joke. Everything about them, has been stolen from bands like Blink 182 and Good Charlotte.
    The simple truth is, Busted have influenced no one, in terms of musical styling, and they never will, because their music has no substance, it is just pointless chart fodder for silly little girls to get wet over.

    I don't deny that people may listen to good bands as a result of Busted's "music", but only because it is impossible to listen to a Busted record without wanting to put something better on...

    "I respect what Busted (and so do a lot of people, even my boyfriend, who is in a Punk band) do for Rock and Punk." - so what does that prove? your boyfriend has bad taste aswell...

    Busted have done nothing for rock or punk music.
    Actually, that's not true, they have pissed on everything that it stands for by stealing the asthetic and removing anything that made it good, in order to appeal to a bunch of 13 year olds.

    Busted are 3 soulsess little cock suckers, who decided to start a pop group and pretend to be a rock band, in order to cash in on the recent rise in the popularity of rock music. Make no mistake about it though, the fact is, if country music had become popular instead of rock, Busted would be wearing cowboy boots and 10 gallon hats and they would all have mullets. They are whores, and it is because of cretins like you, that shit like this is clogging up the airwaves.

    General CommentOk, after that last post, it would just be too easy to mock you, so I am not going to.

    What I am going to say is that if you had actullay bothered to read my other posts, you would understand why I, and anyone else with any music taste hate them.

    Also, I have not disrespected anyones views, unless they did so first.

    Get your facts straight before you post another mindless pile of crap.

    General CommentI love this song. I took my sisters to see Busted in concert at Wembley and seeing them perform this song (well Matt perform this song) is what got me hooked on their music. It's a great song and had me hooked right from the beginning.

    And quiffporn... before you decide to come and tell me I'm stupid and Busted are crap I would just like to point out that whilst I respect your opinion I don't appreciate you making comments about people rotting in hell and being cancerous lumps or whatever the hell other shit it was you came out with. It just isn't necessary.

    And for someone that claims to hate Busted you sure do spend a lot of time on their lyrics pages...

    General CommentI'm not going to tell you you are stupid, what I am going to tell you is that I have to suffer listening to this retarded shit all day long at work and I feel it is my right to vent my spleen about how much ass they suck.

    Calling them a cancer is about the nicest thing I can possibly call them without sniggering to myself, they are just so crappy.

    General CommentIn your opinion. Still, I don't want to argue with you. That's not my intention. I just think that maybe you need to get over yourself a bit and stop going on about why you hate Busted. Why not go and visit the lyric pages of some bands you like and post there instead?

    General CommentFor all you "Busted" fans, listen to some Muse. Seriously. Then maybe you`ll be saved from being a fan of the talentless "Busted". Actually, everyone listen to Muse.

    muse.mu

    I know, this seems like shameless advertising, but c`mon, how many of you would rather have people going "LYKE OMFG, BUSTED ARE TEH BEST! ROCK HEEEER00ES!!!!!11111!!".
