Bleachers I Wanna Get Better

I Wanna Get Better 

Hey, I hear the voice of a preacher from the back room

Calling my name and I follow just to find you

I trace the faith to a broken down television and put on the weather

And I’ve trained myself to give up on the past ’cause

I frozen time between hearses and caskets

Lost control when i panicked at the acid test

I wanna get better

While my friends were getting high and chasing girls down parkway lines

I was losing my mind ’cause the love, the love, the love, the love, the love

That I gave wasted on a nice face

In a blaze of fear I put a helmet on a helmet

Counting seconds through the night and got carried away

So now I’m standing on the overpass screaming at the cars,

Hey, I wanna get better!

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til I saw your face

I wanna get better, better, better, better,

I wanna get better

I didn’t know I was broken ’til i wanted to change

I wanna get better, better, better, better,

I wanna get better

I go up to my room and there’s girls on the ceiling

Cut out their pictures and I chase that feeling

Of an eighteen year old who didn’t know what loss was

Now I’m a stranger

And I miss the days of a life still permanent

Mourn the years before I got carried away

So now I’m staring at the interstate screaming at myself,

Hey, I wanna get better!

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til i saw your face

I wanna get better, better, better, better,

I wanna get better

I didn’t know I was broken ’til i wanted to change

I wanna get better, better, better, better,

I wanna get better

‘Cause I’m sleeping in the back of a taxi

I’m screaming from my bedroom window

Even if its gonna kill me

Woke up this morning early before my family

From this dream where she was trying to show me

How a life can move from the darkness

She said to get better

So I put a bullet where I shoulda put a helmet

And I crash my car cause I wanna get carried away

That’s why I’m standing on the overpass screaming at myself,

Hey, I wanna get better!

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til i saw your face

I wanna get better, better, better, better,

I wanna get better

I didn’t know I was broken ’til i wanted to change

I wanna get better, better, better, better,

I wanna get better
