"Better Things" as written by and Joel/shaw Cadbury....
Look at me acting in the drama of your life
I stumble over something then I fuck my lines
So what will I say?

The better things I have to say will fall to you
The better things I have to say will fall to you
You seem to light up everything in my view
I don't know just what it is I'm thinking about
The better things I have to say will fall to you

If what I said does not amount to much don't doubt your gut
Suppose at least that this is worth these lines are unrehearsed

The better things I have to say will fall to you
The better things I have to say will fall to you
You seem to light up everything in my view
I don't know just what it is I'm thinking about
The better things I have to say will fall to you

Days seem to last forever but the weeks fly by
Feel the conversation treble in the space that we find
Days seem to last forever but the weeks fly by

The better things I have to say will fall to you
The better things I have to say will fall to you

Fall to you

    My InterpretationThis song makes me think it's about someone who stumbles over conversation in front of someone they like, and trying to find the 'better things' to say to them (how I feel sometimes!).

    "If what I said does not amount to much don't doubt your gut
    Suppose at least that this is worth these lines are unrehearsed"

    He's saying that at least it's better that he's thinking off the top of his head, and not having rehearsed something to say!

    My InterpretationLovely song about a guy who tries to say things the best that he can, but fails. The better things, of course, come to the other person in time, though.
