  • You can walk my path
    You can wear my shoes
    Learn to talk like me and be an angel too

    But maybe you ain't never gonna feel this way
    You ain't never gonna know me, but I know you
    I'm singing it now

    Things can only get better
    Can only get better if we see it through
    That means me and I mean you too
    So teach me now that things can only get better
    They can only get, they only get, take it on from here
    You know I know that things can only get better

    I, sometimes lose myself in me
    I lose track of time
    And I can't see the woods for the trees
    You set them alight
    Burn bridges as you go
    I'm too weak to fight you
    I've got my personal hell to deal with, then you say

    Walk my path
    Wear my shoes
    Talk like that
    I'll be an angel then
    Things can only get better
    They can only get better
    Now I found you (and you and you)

    You have shown me prejudice and greed
    And you've shown me how I must learn to deal with this disease
    I look at things now in a different light than I did before
    And I've found the cause
    And I think you can be my cure
    So teach me to

    Walk your path
    Wear your shoes
    Talk like that
    I'll be an angel and things can only get better
    Can only get better
    Now I found you

    Things can only get, can only get

    Things can only get better, they can only get better
    Now I found you
    Things can only get, can only get

    Things can only get better
    Will only get better
    They can only get better
    Now I found you
    So teach me to

    Walk your path
    Wear your shoes
    Talk like that
    I'll be an angel and things can only get better
    They can only get better
    Now I found you (and you and you)
    Things can only get better
    They can only get better
    Now I found you Writer/s: Jamie Petrie, Peter Cunnah
