"Better Part of Me" as written by and Mark Mcfadden Wilkerson....
Something says to me don't be afraid
But if I don't worry I'll surely slip away
I need to speak to you, hear what you say
But if I breathe too hard I think I'll go insane

There's a part of me so insecure
Of all that I could have
And all that I've gone through
If there could be a way through a better design
I'd probably screw it up and let it slip away

Well I wonder if I stayed here
Would you become a better part of me
I can say now that you changed me
And I've become a better part of me

I am the strongest I've ever been
The very thought of you can't even comprehend
The safest bet for me is to focus hard
And try to face myself
Can't take it anymore

Well I wonder if I stayed here
Would you become a better part of me
I can say now that you changed me
And I've become a better part of me

Well I wonder if I stayed here
Would you become a better part of me
I can say now that you changed me
And I've become a better part of me

I hope I'm everything that I need to be
You are my everything, so I'll just stay

Well I wonder if I stayed here
Would you become a better part of me
I can say now that you changed me
And I've become a better part of me

Well I wonder if I stayed here
Would you become a better part of me
I can say now that you changed me
And I've become a better part of me

A better part of me

    General CommentIt's about a guy who has a (girl)friend who makes him a better person & he knows it, but still isn't sure if it's enough...He also wonders if he could help her become a better person too, & that's why he's wondering if he should go (because it might be better for her) But he decides that he wants to stay with her, mostly because it's better for both of them to be together. :)

    General CommentThis song reminds me of myself! :-D I think it's like... he's so afraid of letting things go from the past that he's finding it hard to move on and be with this girl. He wants to make himself better through her... and he admits that she's changed him, but he's still afraid. He thinks that everything he does is wrong and he's just so insecure. In the end he decides to stay and just hope that he's the best for her. I really love this song, and this band. It reminds me of myself because I'm so afraid of letting go of the past, and basically... that I'm never good enough.
