I feel better,
I feel better now you've gone
I got better,
I got better, I got strong

I feel better,
I feel better, now there's nothing wrong

I got better,
I got better, I got strong

Tell me something,
Tell me something I don't know
Tell me one thing,
Tell me one thing, let it go

I got something,
I got something heaven knows

I got something,
I got something I don't know

    General CommentThe gretaest thing about this song is that although the lyrics are simple, they are incredibly affective. I often feel that people on this service analyse the lyrics too much, but with this song the meaning is very obvious.
    Thom Yorke never trys to hide his emotions in his songs and i think his repetition of the phrase, "it's getting better" shows that it's not getting better at all, and that in fact, he loves her so much, he cant live without her. Listen to this song after you break up from a relationship and the sheer simplicity, overwhelming heartache (in both the lyrics and the guitar) and the immense beauty will move you to tears.

    General CommentHe's over her. But then the last four verses reveal that really he's only trying to kid himself and deep down he wants to hear that she loves him (tell me something).

    And I got something. Means he still has feelings for her...

    General CommentOh, wow, initially I thought this was more of an optimistic song. No wonder it was screwing with my emotions. Every time I hear this song, my heart aches and I'm ready to burst into tears. You're right, it's not getting any better for him and you can feel so much from this song.

    General Commentthis song isn't about denial, itz about escaping from a bad relationship so he feels better about himself, but the reason the song is sad is that he is now alone and that is never a good feeling. At the end he is looking forward saying that he has something that he still needs to unlock from within himself, but he doesn't want to yet because he is still coping with lonliness

    General Commentit does sound pretty much like a denial song. I agree with Vince with the fact that it's not getting better at all. It's obviously shown in the last line, "I got something I don't know"

    General CommentEveryone who hates on Pablo Honey should listen to this song, it's the best on the album (and I'm not just partial to it because of my name).

    General CommentForever I thought the same thing you all did. Really though it's about shaking a nasty illness. Could be love, who knows? Look up the definition of a 'Lurgee'. Regardless it's still a kick ass track and I'm shocked and almost offended that there were only 6 posts on this song. BTW I heard this live and it ROCKED!
