Aren’t we all trying to become something better
Oh, whoa oh, don’t you know
Every time you take my hand I become someone better
Oh, whoa, don’t I know

Come spend the night inside a soul
Not so beautiful at all
The howling wolves between my ears
Go silent when they hear you call

My darkness fades away, if you speak I hear you call
Not just the words you say
And now I feel it all

Aren’t we all trying to become something better
(something better)
Oh, whoa oh, don’t you know
Every time you take my hand I become someone better
(someone better)
Oh, whoa, don’t I know

Come spend the day, watch the sunshine play-off the light that’s in your eyes
A lonely bird chants a cheerful word as it floats across the sky

My darkness fades away, if you speak I hear you call
Not just the words you say
And now I feel it all

Aren’t we all trying to become something better
(something better)
Oh, whoa oh, don’t you know
Every time you take my hand I become someone better
(someone better)
Oh, whoa, don’t I know

My Mother
She said "don’t forget the person you are"
Seem to remember chasing falling stars
Up until you found me lying on the ground and whispered

Aren’t we all trying to become something better
(something better)
Oh, whoa oh, don’t you know
Every time you take my hand I become someone better
(someone better)
Oh, whoa, don’t I know

Aren’t we all trying to become something better
(something better)
Oh, whoa oh, don’t you know
Every time you take my hand I become someone better
(someone better)
Oh, whoa, don’t I know

    General CommentAmazing song! I was worried about their new singer but not anymore! She sounds great here and even better with Sonny thrown in the mix.

    My InterpretationI see two thing in this song, one is about a journey of leaving darkness behind and becoming better, maybe leaving behind things of the world and satan's world and becoming more like Jesus, and the second thing is having someone share that journey with who motivates you to and helps you to become a better person.
