Better

[Chorus I]

Throw it on the pyre and watch it glow

Given the chance I would be better

Jump off the high dive and let go

I can’t swim but I would follow

[Verse I]

Lanes of goldenrod next to hemlock

Slanted earth leading to locked doors

Just a couple blocks from my home in the larch tree

So why does it feel like we’re worlds apart?

[Chorus II]

Throw it on the pyre and watch it glow

If we did this again I could be better

Jump off the high dive and let go

Call the lifeguard cause I’m drowning

[Verse II]

The number thirty-six, white cars, and curly brown hair

Each a growing pit in my stomach

Why do the things I love

Always turn sour?

Or is it me that has gone bad?

[Chorus III]

Throw it on the pyre and watch it glow

Give me the chance to be better

Jump off the high dive and let go

Ten feet deep and I’m still sinking

[Verse III]

I curse the goldenrod at summer’s end

For even the spring won’t awake this

This is how it has to end, but I want you to know

I will always love you
