"Better" as written by Shaun Shankel, Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, Matt Bronleewe and Matt Bronleewe....
You live inside a dream
Everything tastes so sweet
As long as it agrees with how you feel
You're dancing in your sleep
'Til all the eyes that look at me
Awaken your anxieties

You're so afraid, so you try to break me, yeah

I don't want to care
And I don't want to hate
And I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
You lash out at me
When you say all the things that you never meant to say
And try to break me

But in the end, what leaves you broken
In the end, makes you better, yeah

Your face looks so green
When the sun is shining differently
And you're standing in the shade
'Cause face to face you're sweet
Like candy sticking to my teeth
But underneath so damaging

There is no strength in trying to break me, no

I don't want to care
And I don't want to hate
And I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
You lash out at me
When you say all the things that you never meant to say
And try to break me

But in the end, what leaves you broken
In the end, makes you better

Yeah, I don't want to hate
I don't want to be broken
I don't want to hate you
I don't want to hate
I don't want to be broken
I don't want to hate you

I don't want to care
And I don't want to hate
And I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
You lash out at me
When you say all the things that you never meant to say
And try to break me

But in the end, what leaves you broken
In the end, makes you better, yeah

    General Commentok for people who dont get it its just her addressing people who are jealous of her or angry at her. shes basically saying "yeah you can get mad at me and yell at me but in the end were both going to end up hurt."

    General CommentIi really like the lines "Cause when your afraid
    you lash out at me
    and you say all the things that you never ment to say
    and try to break me"

    its very true.
    when your mad at someone you just say EVERYTHING that is on your mind without thinking because you want that person to feel bad/sorry

    I also like "But in the end what leaves you broken
    in the end it makes you better "
    this is really true and is applied in everyday life.
