Better Days

Album: Let Love In (2005)
Charted: 36
  • And you ask me what I want this year
    And I try to make this kind and clear
    Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
    'Cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
    And designer love and empty things
    Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

    So take these words
    And sing out loud
    'Cause everyone is forgiven now
    'Cause tonight's the night the world begins again

    I need someplace simple where we could live
    And something only you can give
    And that's faith and trust and peace while we're alive
    And the one poor child who saved this world
    And there's 10 million more who probably could
    If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

    So take these words
    And sing out loud
    'Cause everyone is forgiven now
    'Cause tonight's the night the world begins again

    I wish everyone was loved tonight
    And somehow stop this endless fight
    Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

    So take these words
    And sing out loud
    'Cause everyone is forgiven now
    'Cause tonight's the night the world begins again

    'Cause tonight's the night the world begins again
