Song Description

Most people think that this song is about a proud recovery from a breakup, but actually, I wrote it in response to an audition I had that didn't turn out the way I wanted. Even though I didn't get what I thought I wanted out of it, it ended up inspiring me to do more and be better and it actually influenced me to write my very first song!

Lyrics

BETTER OFF
lyrics: Cara Samantha, music: Cara Samantha & Dominic Fallacaro


VERSE1
I open up, tell you secrets
Moments from days through my years
Love how you listen and hear me
You made me feel safe through the tears.

VERSE2
Growing up days weren't so easy
I never admit that too much
Anger and raging diseases
Made music my favorite crutch.

PRECHORUS
So I sang my heart and bared to you my soul
But you ripped it out and crawled right through the hole.
But now I'm

CHORUS
Better off without you
I got this on my own
Your shit talk made me stronger
You'll see how fast I've grown
But I want you to know that I am grateful for your loss
You lost me but I found me, myself and I am happy now.

VERSE3
There is a burning in question
Did I mention tension wrenching my soul
I'm learning to hang on but let go
Cause there's too much that you'll just never know

PRECHORUS
So I thank you for the hurt you brought that day
I am stronger now. There's nothing in my way.
And now I'm

CHORUS - DOUBLE
Better off without you
I got this on my own
Your shit talk made me stronger
You'll see how fast I've grown
Better off without you
I don't need you to win
I have put my guard up.
And no one's breaking in
But I want you to know that I am grateful for your loss
You lost me but I found me, myself and I am happy now.

BREAKDOWN
You lost me but I found me, myself and I am happy now (3x)
