"Better Part Of Me" as written by Josh King, Phil Bell, Matthew Bowers, Joel Kiser, Jeff Linn and David Mclaughlin....
Dining like a bird,
I pick the blue out of your eyes.
Hijack a plan to France.
If we could watch the moon,
Dance across the street into a bar,
I would never leave,
But I know I'll have to go sometime.
Your hold on me is stronger than the alcohol,
That's slowly killing me.

So I'm searching for the better,
Searching for the better,
The better part of me.
For the better part of me.

Turning up the flame,
To keep the smoke out of my eyes
So that I can see.
Like a cloudy sky,
I'm holding on and staying up,
Trying to believe we all have to go sometime.
Your hold on me is stronger than the gravity,
That's slowly crushing me.

So I'm searching for the better,
Searching for the better,
The better part of me.
For the better part of me.

    General CommentHe loves this girl and would do anything for her (hijack a plane to France) but at the same time he feels as though he's not good enough for her, for instance he drinks too much. But he's trying to make himself better - to search for the better part of him, because he cares so much about her (your hold on me is stronger than the alcohol).
    However he also knows that this won't last forever and sometime they'll have to go their seperate ways. For now he's just enjoying her company and feeling lucky that he's got even this short time with her.

    Also I think it should be 'turning up the fan' rather than 'the flame' as it makes more sense that way? =/

    General Commenteh decent song, a little cliche for my taste. he met a girl and he really cares about her, but she won't date him because he has so many other issues to deal wiht. Aka, this song is exactly like hoobastanks the reason:she's giving him a reason to try to better himself
