"Better Life" as written by Keith Lionel Urban and Richard Marx....
Friday night and the moon is high
I'm wide awake just watchin' you sleep
And I promise you you're gonna have
More than just the things that you need
We ain't got much now; we're just starting out
But I know somehow Paradise is coming

Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
Good luck's gonna shine
Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
So hold on, we're headed for a better life

Oh, now there's a place for you and me
Where we can dream as big as the sky
I know it's hard to see it now
But, baby, someday we're gonna fly
This road we're on, you know it might be long
But my faith is strong
It's all that really matters

Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
Good luck's gonna shine
Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
So hold on, we're headed for a better life

So hold on, hold on
C'mon, baby, hold on
Yeah, we're gonna have it all, and oh

Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
Good luck's gonna shine
Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
So hold on, we're headed for a better life

Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
Good luck's gonna shine
Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
So hold on, we're headed for a better life

A better life now, oh ho, a better life
Hey, we're gonna leave this all behind us, baby, wait and see
We're headed for a better life, you and me
We're gonna break the chains that bind and finally we'll be free
We're gonna be the ones that have it all, you and me
Just hold on tight now, baby, whoa

    General CommentThis song could be placed in a commercial for the efforts that America is making to clean up the mess from the disasterous hurricane Katrina. We all know that it will take a lot of work, but we will eventually seek the moment when we are finally introduced to a better life. Such an upbeat song!

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs ever!!! it's so cute and i love the music video. Keith Urban is amazing. This song is just about waiting until everything you've worked for catches up with you and you finally get to enjoy the profit of the hard times in your life :)

    My OpinionI used to hate country, but around five years ago, I was flicking through the channels and the music video for this song was on CMT's Top 20 Countdown, aqnd this I have to say was the song that got me to be a fan. And five years later, here I am as an aspiring coutnry musician myself. haha
