"Better Days" as written by and Richard Davies....
I saw it coming,
I saw emptiness and tragedy
And I felt like running, so far away
Then knew I had to stay
And I know when I'm older
I'll look back and I'll still feel the pain
I know I'll be stronger, and I know I'll be fine, for the rest of my days

I've seen better days
Put my face in my hands
Get down on my knees and I pray to God
Hope he sees me through til the end

I notice most things, but I didn't notice the change
It was hot in the morning
Then it turned so cold towards the end of the day
And there's no condensation
I just felt like I was in space
I needed my friends there, I just turned around
They were gone without a trace

I've seen better days
Put my face in my hands
Get down on my knees and I pray to God
Hope he sees me through til the end

Now I have just started, and I won't be done, til the end
There's nothing I have lost
That was once placed, in the palm of my hands
And all of these hard times, have faded round the bend
Now that I'm wiser
I cannot wait til I can help my friends

I've seen better days
Put my face in my hands
Get down on my knees and I pray to God
Hope he sees me through til the end

I've seen better days
Put my face in my hands
Get down on my knees and I pray to God
Hope he sees me through til the end

    General Commenthes musical talants have definately jumped up a step. i think this is about when he was depressed or something like that and is reflecting on 'better days'

    General Commentew. all his new songs are crap, and this one sounds like hes gone 'hmm ive got nothing to write about so ill just write about a bad day and pretend to be depressed'

    he needed to take a year off and be normal again to get some inspiration for songs about REAL stuff.

    General CommentIf you think pete was pulling these lyrics out of his arse you've clearly never been through this...
    When you know full well something really heart wrenching is about to happen and you just want to run as fast as you can in the opposite direction. Every fibre of your being says 'RUN!!!!!' But for whatever reason, you have to hold your ground. That really sucks, believe me.

    General Commentnevermind what this song is about - i dont really care if some people think its emo 'ill go slit my wrists now' but think about how great the strings sound backing his voice-not many artists can put that together.

    General CommentI'm a huge Pete Murray fan and it's weird that this song was released at the exact time I broke up with my bf of 2 years.. It basically describes everything I was going through.. I'm sure many can relate to it
