"Things Can Only Get Better" as written by Peter Cunnah and Jamie Petrie....
You can walk my path
You can wear my shoes
Learn to talk like me and be an angel too

But maybe you ain't never gonna feel this way
You ain't never gonna know me, but I know you
I'm singing it now

Things can only get better
Can only get better if we see it through
That means me and I mean you too
So teach me now that things can only get better
They can only get, they only get, take it on from here
You know I know that things can only get better

I, sometimes I lose myself in me
I lose track of time
And I can't see the wood for the trees
You set them alight
Burning bridges as you go
I'm too weak to fight you
I've got my personal hell to deal with, then you say

Walk my path
Wear my shoes
Talk like that
I'll be an angel then
Things can only get better
Can only get better, now
I found you

Things can only get better
They can only get better
Now I found you
And you and you

You've shown me prejudice and greed
And you've shown me how I must learn to deal with this disease
I look at things now in a different light than I did before
And I've found the cause
And I think you can be my cure
So teach me to

Walk your path
Wear your shoes
Talk like that
I'll be an angel and things can only get better

Things can only get, can only get
Things can only get, can only get
Things can only get, can only get
Things can only get, can only get

    My Interpretation"You can walk my path
    You can wear my shoes
    Learn to talk like me and be an angel too

    But maybe you ain't never gonna feel this way
    You ain't never gonna know me, but I know you
    I'm singing it now"

    I see this as Christ and the Christian. The relationship each has. The love that Jesus has for the individual, asking him/her to follow, yet allowing that person the free will to choose. Jesus knows that person and loves him//her despite the decision they make in the end. If we choose to walk with Him we can become more like Him.

    "Things can only get better
    Can only get better if we see it through
    That means me and I mean you too"

    If we follow Him, things can only get better. and He will not leave us on our own but always be with us.

    "So teach me now that things can only get better
    They can only get, they only get, take it on from here
    You know I know that things can only get better"

    Then this is our response. We love Him, we want to be like Him but many times we don't know how. We need Him to "take it on from here" and guide and teach us.

    "I, sometimes I lose myself in me
    I lose track of time
    And I can't see the wood for the trees
    You set them alight
    Burning bridges as you go
    I'm too weak to fight you
    I've got my personal hell to deal with, then you say"

    Even as followers and friends of Jesus we struggle within ourselves. We get consumed with self and loose our inner peace and joy that we first had when we were young Christians. But Jesus doesn't give up. He comes and rescues us. But sometimes we still resist even though we are so weak from the inner battles we fight. We reject Him, but still he says:

    "Walk my path
    Wear my shoes
    Talk like that"

    And our response is:

    "I'll be an angel then
    Things can only get better
    Can only get better, now
    I found you

    Things can only get better
    They can only get better
    Now I found you
    And you and you"

    I love this part. It is so true of the Christian life if we are walking close to Jesus. The disease is the disease of sin. And the prejudice and greed is within. Christ in His soft and gentle way shows us that the problems in the world start with the individual. The "cause" is indwelling sin, Jesus is the cure.

    "You've shown me prejudice and greed
    And you've shown me how I must learn to deal with this disease
    I look at things now in a different light than I did before
    And I've found the cause
    And I think you can be my cure"

    So we say to Jesus, knowing that with Him things will only get better:

    "So teach me to

    Walk your path
    Wear your shoes
    Talk like that
    I'll be an angel and things can only get better

    Things can only get, can only get
    Things can only get, can only get
    Things can only get, can only get
    Things can only get, can only get"
