"Better Man" as written by and Robert Peter Williams Guy Chambers....
I'm not the sharpest sharp of glass
From this broken window
But there's a few things that I've learned
that you might want to know
That misery is a talent you can hone
And sorrow is a product we call can't wait to own

But I'm just trying to be
a Better Man

Flesh and blood cover the statues on the street
They'll treat you like a friend
But they stare at you like fresh meat
And the porcelain teeth that smile in your face
Can't wait for you to fall
so they can take your place

And I'm just trying to be
a Better Man
Yeah I'm just trying to be
a Better Man

Lie and cheat your friends
while you still have time
And downplay the drama while
you figure out a clever rhyme
And smile in a semi-sympathetic tone
Can't appreciate good friends until you find
you're all alone

But I'm just trying to be
a Better Man
Yeah I'm just trying to be
a Better Man

    General CommentAwesome. The song is about a breakup (So is the whole CD) but after you breakup that point where you still love each other but you're just friends. Like you don't know what to do.
