Better released in May 2021 to coincide with Mental Health Awareness week. Recorded live during a period of unknown temporary housing with a minimal studio setup it was purposely stark and vulnerable.

Better

She smiles but beneath it lies a hidden truth

She hides from the chance to make a change

The weight hangs around her neck like a tailored noose

Why does it fall in line never rearranged

 

She steps is it caution or a leap of faith

For you she might just wear some kind of socially acceptable face

But inside the feelings they are beavering away

Knocking the little confidence she has left today

 

Why am I so unhappy

Oh well what's happiness anyway

Will anything make it better

Oh well what's better anyway

 

Standing at the kitchen sink talking out loud to you

Tears streaming down her face

The crushing depths of reality of her inadequacies laid down

It was meant to be so different

 

Why am I so unhappy

Oh well what's happiness anyway

And will anything make it better

Oh well what's better anyway

 

Her sombre heart is on the floor again

Mind like thick fog resting waiting for the winds of change

Does she want to fight this anymore

What is this status she's living for

 

She found something that gave her hope to carry on

A love like no other she'd ever known

She didn't have to get it right or wrong

Cos this love made her unconditionally belong

 

Why am I so unhappy

Oh well what's happiness anyway

And will anything make it better

Oh well what's better anyway

 

It was today
