  • There's a light at the end of the tunnel
    Keep your eyes on the road ahead
    But if you're feeling lost in the night
    It's okay to cry
    Just as long as you hold your head

    'Cause we're on our way to better
    Better's ahead, better's ahead
    It get's worse 'fore it gets better
    But better's ahead, better's ahead
    Better days are comin' (better and better and better, ooh-ooh)
    Better days are comin' (ooh-ooh, better days)
    Better days, better days (better and better and better, oh-ooh)
    Better days are comin' (better days, better days)

    I know you've been kicked down
    Slept on, let down, faith gone
    Waited for too long for somethin' to lean on (lean on)
    You feel weak, just be strong (ooh)
    Deep breath, stay calm
    If you just press on, press on, press on

    You gon' see there's a light at the end of the tunnel (at the end of the tunnel)
    Keep your eyes on the road ahead (on the road ahead)
    And if you're feelin' lost in the night (lost in the night)
    It's okay to cry (it's okay to cry)
    Just as long as you hold your head

    'Cause we're on our way to better (ah)
    Better's ahead (better), better's ahead (ah)
    It get's worse 'fore it gets better (ah-ah-ah)
    But better's ahead, better's ahead
    Better days are comin' (better and better and better, ooh-ooh, I know, I know)
    Better days are comin' (ooh-ooh)
    (Better days, better days, better and better and better, ooh-ooh)
    And better days are comin' (ooh-ooh)
    (Better days, better days)

    I know you feel left out and stepped on
    Keep goin', keep goin'
    Shine bright, don't dim yours for no one
    Keep goin' higher, and higher and higher and higher

    (Because there's better)
    Better days, better days are comin' (better days)
    Better days, better days (on their way) are comin' ('cause I know)
    Better days, better days (better days) are comin' (yeah)
    Better days (comin'), better days (I know)
    Better days are comin'
