Lyrics

THERE’S BETTER THINGS AHEAD THAN ANY YOU LEAVE BEHIND

When you feel like life has finally beat you down
And you can’t find a friendly face anyplace in town
Draw a deep breath for tomorrow you just might find
There’s better things ahead, than any you leave behind

When you feel like the whole wide world’s breathing down your neck
And you’re playing a losing game due to a stacked deck
Throw your cares to the universe and widen your frame of mind
There’s better things ahead, than any you leave behind

Both hope and fear find ways to multiply
But only one of the two can fly
Free as a bird through the clear blue sky

When your clothes don’t fit and you hate the way you look
And when it comes to loneliness, you swear you wrote the book
Turn the page and break the chains that bind
There’s better things ahead, than any you leave behind

How can you claim your fate is sealed?
When hope springs eternal yields
Bursting like color from a summer wildflower field

When you wake up and you just want to lay there and cry
Because the night was so dark and cold all of your dreams died
Open your eyes to the morning light breaking through the blinds
There’s better things ahead, than any you leave behind
