"Better To Be" as written by and Liam Finn....
Better to be, bigger than the other
Heart on your sleeve and hat on your head
I want to see you playing with your shadow
Hypnotize me with every step

Oh oh oh

Falling asleep or sitting at the doctor
I don't believe a thing that he says
Ordinary people like I told you
Are following me everywhere

Bottle it up
Bottle it up
Bottle it up
Bottle it up

Girl you seemed so nice
But I'll be gone by morning time
Baby, baby I'll be gone
You fooled me once or twice
The boy inside can't unwind
Maybe, maybe I'll go home

Better to be, looking for an answer
Out in the sea and under your bed
I'll probably, just leave it to the morning
My energy is already spent

Bottle it up
Bottle it up
Bottle it up
Bottle it up
Bottle it up
Bottle it up
Bottle it up
Bottle it up

Girl you seemed so nice
But I'll be gone by morning time
Baby, baby I'll be gone
Fooled me once or twice
The boy inside can't unwind
Maybe, maybe I'll go home
Spoiling appetite
Bigger eyes than belly size
Baby, baby I'll be gone
You fooled me once or twice
The boy inside can't unwind
Maybe, maybe I'll go home

    General Commentwow the interpretation before mine is a bit far out, quite interesting. I originally thought this song was about one night stands, but after reading the lyrics I think its more to do with identity crisis, and this guy is looking for himself (and having one night stands along the way). anyways thats my opinion, I also think Liam Finn looks like a bush ranger, not saying thats a bad thing I kinda dig the beard. This boy has talent, I think he's gonna be big and on his own merits. Go Liam! Woo
