"Better Things" as written by Ben Watt, Tracey Thorn, Robert Del Naja, Grant Lee Marshall, James Brown and Andrew Vowles....
Don't drag me down
Just because you're down
And just 'cause you're blue
Don't make me too
Although you've found
Beauty more than me
Don't talk to me
About being free

That's freedom without love
And magic without love
Magic without love

Here we're safe
Better things will surely come our way
Hear me say
Better things will surely come our way

You say the magic's gone
Well I'm not a magician
You say the spark's gone
Well get an electrician
And save your line about needing to be free
Ah, that's bullshit babe
You just won't let it be

You want freedom without love
And magic without love
Magic without love
Yeah

Here we're safe
Better things will surely come our way
Hear me say
Better things will surely come our way

    General CommentSome incorrect lyrics here, the chorus is:

    "You say, Better things will surely come my way"

    and the end of the second verse is:

    "Save your line about needing to be free
    Ah, that's bullshit babe
    You just want rid of me"

    Great sone though...

    General CommentIt's about a girl/woman who is just fed up of all the pathetic excuses she is being fed with, she wants the real reason, no more crap. She understands that he wants to leave her and she is angry but understands that the relationship has come to an end. The patheticness of the excuses just makes everything hurt more. She just wants him to be straight with her.

    At the end, she is looking forward to the outlook of the future.

    General Comment"hear me say, better things will surely come my way"

    it seems to me she realizes he's/she's kind of a sleeze and is letting go of grudges knowing something better is on the horizon.

    General Comment"Here we're safe" pretty much summarizes the song. Thankfully some of us refuse to settle for boring repetitious lives of hiding. Bring on the challenges of life and the people who will enjoy it with us! Good song.
