"Today Will Be Better, I Swear!" as written by and Christopher Seligman Torquil Campbell....
When can't get up to the cold morning light
But you don't get to sleep in, still dreaming
And everybody only wants to fight
You're up against never being right
When the worries of the world hold your feet
And there's little left to believe in

Today, today, it's gonna be a better one
There's nothing more to take in, going wrong
Today, today, it's gonna be a better one
There's nothing more to take in, going wrong
There's nothing more to take in, going wrong

Old pale memories of someone you knew
Keep crawling through the back of your mind, stealin' time
And in the daylight, you're crossing all your wires
You never knew just how to put out a fire
And the closet's been shaken with bones
Little reminders that you're out on your own

Today, today, it's gonna be a better one
There's nothing more to take in, going wrong
Today, today, it's gonna be a better one
There's nothing more to take in, going wrong
There's nothing more to take in, going wrong

Today, today, keep your head and drive again
There's nothing more to battle and you go
Today, today, it's gonna be a better one
There's nothing more to take in, going wrong
There's nothing more to take in, going wrong

    General Comment'Ow ow ow' is something i could say about pretty much every Stars song.

    "Keep crawling through the back of your mind
    Stealing time
    And in the daylight you're crossing all your wires
    You just never knew how to put out a fire"

    ...Ow ow ow.

    General CommentI love this song; Amy sounds amazing and it's so optimistic, which is what makes Stars so inspiring. I think she actually says, "Keep your head and drop your gun."

    General Commentthey way i interpret this song is something like:

    "today will be better cos so much bad stuff has happened to me already that theres nothing worse that can happen anymore"

    or is that too negative? hahaha

    General CommentI love the quote at the beginning "the only problem with going to bed, is you have to wake up in the morning" that with the background rift is beautiful. Amy sounds like perfection as always, and although the song isn't too deep, it brings a surge of hope every time you hear her croon "today, today, is gonna be a better one".

    General CommentAhh, one of my favorite of Stars' newer songs. It's so positive -- even though life really sucks sometimes, the only thing you can do sometimes is look forward and keep trying to hang on. And/or that life is so crappy right now that it can only get better.
