Looking for something better
(From the album BETTER?)
clip to hear Listen

Walking around looking for something better
Walking around looking for something better than you
But I saw a pretty little girl wearing your sweater
And it’s making me blue, yeah it’s making me blue.

I’ve been up all night trying to tell my fortune
And I’ve been searching the skies for something new
And I’ve been sending prayers up to that bright moon
And it’s making me blue, yeah it’s making me blue.

I’ve been searching the world for something better
For something that don’t kill me like you do
And I want to take my heart out and send it to you in a letter
So you can feel it too, so you can feel it too.
Cause it seems that things keep changing, every time you look around
One minute you’re on the top of the world and the next you’re six feet under ground.

I’ve been sending messages to my brother
And I’ve been e-mailing all my friends
But none of them can find me another lover
And it’s making me blue, yeah it’s making me blue.

You think everybody loves you but I know better
You’re a bullying aggressive loud mouth when you’re drunk
Your mother she’ll dislike me forever but I’ll let her
Cause I dislike her too, yeah I dislike her too.
Cause it seems that things keep changing every time you look around
One minute they’re all in love with you and the next they’re on their way out of town.

So I’m walking around all alone trying not to let on
Walking around this town like a clown without you
And I want to walk out into this traffic head-on
And it’s making my blue, yeah it’s making me blue.
Cause it seem that things keep changing, every time you look around
One minute the sun’s out shining bright and the next the rain comes pissing down.
