Better Than I Found It

  • I don't wanna hear about another, riot
    Someone dying
    At the wrong end of a gun

    One more bullet might break my, heart
    Oh it sure is dark
    Can we let in a little sun

    I just wanna be a light, be a light, be a light
    I just wanna be a light, every day and every night
    And leave a better than I found it
    A better than I found it
    Leave a better than I found it, world!

    Another outline on another, sidewalk
    It's not just hopscotch
    Even rain can't wash that paint away

    God won't let you give up on, us
    Oh what have we done
    Look at all the chaos we create

    I just wanna be a light, be a light, be a light
    I just wanna be a light, every day and every night
    And leave a better than I found it
    A better than I found it
    Leave a better than I found it, world!

    Rapid fire love
    Rapid fire love
    That's my ammunition and I'm loading up
    Rapid fire love
    Rapid fire love
    That's my ammunition
    I wanna leave it
    Just a little better, just a little better
    Just a little better, just a little better
    Just a little better, just a little better

    Better than I found it
    Better than I found it
    Better than I found it world
    I wanna leave
    Oh, better
    Oh, better
    We gotta leave

    I believe we can see
    We can leave it better that we found it

    Better than I found it
    Leave a better, world! Writer/s: BOBBY HAMRICK, JAMES SLATER, PRISCILLA RENAE
