  • Do you know what it's like when
    You're scared to see yourself
    Do you know what it's like when
    You wish you were someone else
    Who didn't need your help to get by
    Do you know what it's like
    To wanna surrender

    I don't wanna feel like this tomorrow
    I don't wanna live like this today
    Make me feel better
    I wanna feel better
    Stay with me here now
    And never surrender
    (never surrender)

    Do you know what it's like when
    You're not who you wanna be
    Do you know what it's like to
    Be your own worst enemy
    Who sees the things in me I can't hide
    Do you know what it's like to wanna surrender

    I don't wanna feel like this tomorrow
    I don't wanna live like this today
    Make me feel better
    I wanna feel better
    Stay with me here now
    And never surrender

    Make me feel better
    You make me feel better
    You make me feel better
    Put me back together

    I don't wanna feel like this tomorrow
    I don't wanna live like this today
    Make me feel better
    I wanna feel better
    Stay with me here now
    And never surrender

    Put me back together
    Never surrender
    Make me feel better
    I need to feel better
    Stay with me here now
    And never surrender Writer/s: DAVE BASSETT, DAVE RICHARD BASSETT, JOHN COOPER, JOHN LANDRUM COOPER
