Better Than Yourself (Criminal Mind Pt 2)

Album: Lukas Graham (Blue Album) (2012)
  • I got the letter back
    Saying I can come and see you
    I really don't have time
    But promised that I'd come and see you
    You're sitting far away
    But do you know I sometimes need you
    I know that you deserve
    The time you got of all the people
    I know you never bent
    Even in the strongest wind
    I really wished to every God
    That you were innocent
    I'm happy and I'm proud
    That I can still call you my friend
    I hope you read the letters
    And the magazines I send

    You got your head up
    But I don't have my hopes high
    I know that you're a good man
    And that's what, brings a tear to my eye
    I'm like, oh

    I hope you know you're not alone in that hell
    And there ain't, no
    No one can change it
    No one can do it better than yourself

    I was sixteen
    And we used to roll together
    You told me back then
    That I was meant for something better
    You know in our life
    Nothing's gonna change but the weather
    It seems it's been forever
    Since we really stuck together
    I'm living a crazy life
    I wish that you could see it too
    See a thousand people sing
    My song from me to you
    Every time I sing it
    You know I'm bleeding too
    Man I accept you as you are
    No I don't need the truth

    I got my head up
    But I ain't got my hopes high
    See I know that you're a good man
    And it brings a tear to my eye
    I'm like, oh

    I hope you know you're not alone in that hell
    And there ain't, no
    No one can change it
    No one can do it better but yourself

    I reminisce to back then, when it was you and I
    Smoking big fat blunts, drive in movie night
    They tried to get you down, but you refused to die
    They tried to give you angel wings, but you refused to fly

    You'd rather stay in hell, and take your time in jail
    They're only punishing a soul that you will never sell
    We both know that we owe nothing to each other
    But can you blame me, for loving and missing my brother

    Oh, oh I hope you know you're not alone in that hell
    And there ain't, no
    No one can change it
    No one can do it better than yourself

    Oh, oh I hope you know you're not alone in that hell
    And there ain't, no
    No one can change it
    No one can do it better than yourself
