"Betterman" as written by Zad Navid Darius Danesh, Kara E. Dioguardi and Steve Lipson....
So betterman I am since I
Come into contact with you
And you taught so many things about myself
And you know this is true
But now we are apart and its all my fault
'cause you know I need to be alone
Don't know myself
So why can I share me with you girl or anyone

Don't want to be a thorn in your side
Good woman
Always be the one
To make you cry
Don't wanna be that guy
Good woman

because you are beautiful


Now typical man
I am because you think
I want my cake and eat it too
'cause say I can't be in a relationship
But I still feel for you
'cause you are the best woman
This old man has ever met
You taught me about my soul
You shared with me your magic

Don't want to be a thorn in your side
Good woman
Always be the one
To make you cry
Don't wanna be that guy
Good woman
'cause you deserve everything
And I got nothing so leave me
And I'll go away better off I stay
Far from you,
Because you are beautiful


BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL WOMAN?BETTER MAN I AM 'cause OF YOU?

    General Commentyer this song is great, its gotta be one of my fav JBT songs. although i think that he does love her and he just wants her to be happy and he doesnt think that hes the right man to do it, he loves her enough to want to leave her if it makes her happier even if it means hurting himself. its gold. and whats the go with no one writing anything for these guys? they are awsome! ps. shit i didnt know they were aussies! thats gold to think at least somone in my contry has done it right

    thats all

    General CommentThis song is an absolute gem!!!!! These guys really know how to write good songs. Not bad from a bunch of Aussie boys. Its about a guy who meets and incredible girl, who teaches him all about himself and about stuff he couldn't see in himself. But the problem is he is not in love with the girl, and wants to end the relationship without hurting her. Thats my thoughts anyway.

    General CommentI have to agree with 'tool 4 my life'. It's about the guy who thinks the girl he loves' life would be better without him. It's a sad song, but DAMN! John knows how to play a gutiar.

    What is it with the 11 string gutiar? What did some chop off his 12th string. John certainly is one of the best gutiarist's in the country. Man he plays some wicked solo's.

    General CommentIts not custom, he just took out the G string to make it easier to find his fingering. plus, this is a great song, so fast, so good.

    General CommentA Truly Wicked Song. I adore the strings going through it all. It's a crazy melody with kind of broken sentences, but it flows really well. It's even better live! Love it Love it! Not often is a song so filled with love so funky!
