"Don't Kick The Chair" as written by Dia Frampton, Michael James Ryan Busbee and Julie R. Frost....
Have you ever felt like everybody’s watching
Waiting for you to lose
Have you ever felt like you’re living in a spot light
Searching for the real you
Tell me have you ever woken up
Just to wish you could close your eyes
Getting hard to find a friend in a city like this
Where you can’t even trust a smile

There are lonely nights when you see no hope
And you’re feeling short of breath
Like a whole damn world is a braided rope
In a noose around your neck

Don’t kick the chair
It’s gonna get better
Don’t kick the chair
It can only get better

Have you ever felt love, really really felt love
The kind that could save a life
But right before you know it you find out in a moment
You’re gonna have to say goodbye

There are lonely nights when you see no hope
And you’re feeling short of breath
Like a whole damn world is a braided rope
In a noose around your neck

Don’t kick the chair
It’s gonna get better
Don’t kick the chair
It can only get better

Yep yep you know
If I can make it through then you can to
Yep yep I’m good focus like always
Feels like I’ve been hit hit hit by ten brick walls
Some people like just sit sit around and wait for you to fall
Then bounceback way quicker than you fell down
Laugh in their face like what
See nothing can break me
No no no no listen

    Lyric CorrectionThe last bit, in Kid Cudi's part is missing here, it should be:

    No no no no listen
    If you gotta think twice about life
    Something really aint’ right
    You don’t need to help
    You Could be better all by yourself
    You Could be better all by yourself
    You Could be better all by yourself yeah
    You Could be better all by yourself ooh

    Also, being the first song on the album "Red" This song has such a powerful message. It makes me love Dia so much more.

    General CommentStunning song - being sung with so much passion. I can relate to the way she felt, wanting to give up - but then coming to the realization that life has so much more to offer... No matter what life throws at you - It can only get better!!!

    General CommentI heard this playing in a store a little while back, and thought the tune was catchy. It wasn't until I looked it up and realized what it was about that I really liked it. That is the importance of good lyrics.
