Better You, Better Me

Album: The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete (2013)
  • I look into the mirror
    And see a different girl
    Hiding from herself with
    Not a care in the world
    Her smile pretends to fool
    Those she chooses to please
    If they could only see the tears she cries for help
    See, I have been that girl
    Didn't know which way to turn
    Then one day I turned to me

    I told myself to wake up
    It's gonna be a better day
    I just have to believe that
    My dreams won't have to wait
    At times I've lost my mind
    Had to look deep inside
    And find a way to get over
    Had to swallow my pride
    I searched the world for and answer
    But I've been searching too far
    Because I've been here all along

    I'm here to make a statement
    My place I'm here to claim it
    Don't tell me what my name is
    I Know, I'm gonna make it
    I've come to far to lose it
    Gotta stay focused
    And find a better me

    Feels like forever
    Trying to work it out
    Sometimes you're gonna fail
    And you know
    Sometime it will rain
    But the sun will come
    When u think it's all said and done
    You know u see the light
    And everything is alright
    You can do
    Whatever you put your mind to
    'Cause you're all that you need
    Like I do just believe

    You're here to make a statement
    You're place you're here to claim it
    You know just what your name is
    Now, go, you're gonna make it
    You've come to far to lose it
    Gotta stay focused
    And find a better you
    Me, oh me, me

    I got to love me
    I got to know me
    I got to find me
    I know what now

    I've been here all alone
    I'm here to make a statement
    I'm place you're here to claim it
    Don't tell me what your name is
    I know gonna make it
    I've come to far to lose it
    Gotta stay focused
    And find a better me

    You're here to make a statement
    You're place you're here to claim it
    You know just what your name is
    Now, go, you're gonna make it
    You've come to far to lose it
    Gotta stay focused
    And find a better you

    I'm here to make a statement
    I'm place you're here to claim it
    Don't tell me what my name is
    I know gonna make it
    I've come to far to lose it
    Gotta stay focused
    And find a better me Writer/s: MARSHA AMBROSIUS, ALICIA KEYS, STEVE MOSTYN
