"You're My Better Half" as written by and John/urban Shanks....
Car door slams, it's been a long day at work
I'm out on the freeway and I'm wondering if it's all worth
The price that I pay, sometimes it doesn't seem fair
I pull into the drive and you're standing there
And you look at me
And give me that come-here-baby smile
It's all gonna be alright
You take my hand
You pull me close and you hold me tight

And it's the sweet love that you give to me
That makes me believe we can make it through anything
'Cause when it all comes down
And I'm feeling like I'll never last
I just lean on you 'cause baby
You're my better half

They say behind every man is a good woman
But I think that's a lie
'Cause when it comes to you I'd rather have you by my side
You don't know how much I count you to help me
When I've given everything I got and I just feel like giving in
And you look at me
And give me that come-here-baby smile
It's all gonna be alright
You take my hand
Yeah you pull me close and you hold me tight

And it's the sweet love that you give to me
That makes me believe we can make it through anything
'Cause when it all comes down
And I'm feeling like I'll never last
I just lean on you 'cause baby
You're my better half

Well, you take my hand
Yeah you pull me close and I understand

It's the sweet love that you give to me
That makes me believe that we can make it through anything

Oh baby, it's the sweet love that you give to me
That makes me believe we can make it through anything
'Cause when it all comes down
And I'm feeling like I'll never last
I just lean on you 'cause baby
You're my better half

Oh, oh baby you're my better half
Oh, hey baby you're my better half

    General CommentThis song appears to have a double meaning. If you read the lyrics again carefully you will see that it is actually about a secret crossdresser who, after a long hard days work, likes nothing better than to come home and pull on his specially made large-crouched women's underwear and don his best frock. His ‘better half’ is simply a metaphor for his feminine side, which he feels a lot more comfortable with than the façade he puts on for the outside world. Very deep song indeed.

    General CommentWow, you have a lot of free time.
    I admire your thoughts, but I'd actually prefer to think that it wasn't about a crossdresser. But that's just me. :D Plus, it doesn't exactly fit. How come his "better half" loves him so much?? Sounds kinda freaky.

    General CommentOne, I think the whole "crossdresser" thing is rediculous. Its quite obvious he's talking about the woman he loves. I think its an insult to Keith Urban, one of the most inspiring country singers to be called a crossdresser! I mean, I have nothing against crossdressers but seriously think for a second, he's getting married, of course he's not a crossdresser!

    This song is about Keith coming home from work and being tired, and he feels happy that his wife/girl-friend is there to comfort him. He's basically saying he loves her so much she's like his better half. THAT is the meaning of the song and I found it very obvious.
