"Better Things" as written by and Davies....
Here is wishing you the bluest skies
Hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme
The very best of choruses too

Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on their way

Here is hoping all the days ahead
Won't be as bitter as the ones behind you
Be an optimist instead
And somehow happiness will find you

Forget what happened yesterday
I know that better things are on their way

It's really good to see you rocking out and having fun
Living like you've just begun
Accept your life and what it brings
I hope tomorrow you find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

Here is wishing you the bluest skies
Hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme
The very best of choruses too

Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on their way

It's really good to see you rocking out and having fun
Living like you've just begun
Accept your life and what it brings
I hope tomorrow you find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

Forget what happened yesterday
I know that better things are on their way

I know you got a lot of good things happening up ahead
The past is gone, it's all been said
So here's to what the future brings
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

    Great tune though.

    General Commentdidnt know it was a cover... it's a great song, with inspiring lyrics, i wish it was theirs.

    i think lyrics are very simple, it's like dedicated to a friend who's having an awful time... but it will end (apparently soon) and this friend is getting over those things, he's laughing again and everything. basically the songs is saying "i wish you the best, you've been strong, and now bad times are ending"

    General Commentsame here, didn't know it was a cover.. I still prefer the bouncing souls' version though.. has a lot more energy, which is an ideal combination with the probably most optimistic lyrics ever written :) I can't start a day without this song and I'm so glad I've found it

    General CommentYou guys should really listen to more Kinks stuff. They're obviously a huge influence on the Souls. They had that whole positive energy and uplifting spirit.

    Honestly, go through their catalog--I'm actually a little jealous you guys get to experience it

    But back to this cover. The Souls definitely do this song justice. It's almost as if it were written for them.
