"Better Love Next Time" as written by Kim Patton-johnston and Caryl Mack Parker....
He picked her up in an old red Ford
With a busted windshield and rusted out doors
She was 18, he was 21
What could they know about love so young
Then he found someone new and he was gone
And left her with a baby in her arms

She's gonna be ready
For a better love next time
She's got so much to give
And she knows what she deserves
Learnin' from experience
She won't make the same mistakes again
She'll be ready for a better love
Better love next time

She thought she needed stability
He wasn't afraid of a family
Life got easier for awhile
Another husband, another child
But a rage inside him burned out of control
She dried her tears and knew she had to go

She's gonna be ready
For a better love next time
She's got so much to give
And she knows what she deserves
Learnin' from experience
She won't make the same mistakes again
She'll be ready for a better love
Better love next time

Sometimes it's hard with two kids on her own
But she's getting stronger the longer she's alone

She's gonna be ready
For a better love next time
She's got so much to give
And she knows what she deserves
Learnin' from experience
She won't make the same mistakes again
She'll be ready for a better love
Better love next time
