Lyrics

It All Gets Better
©Words and music by Chris Chickering (Chris Chickering Music,

I see this girl, she comes in the store every now and then
It's like the darkness is her only friend
Like she's been holdin' on to where's she's been
For too long, too long, yea

She wears a smile like a black and white photograph
Nah, you ain't gonna make her laugh
No matter what you say
'Cause thinks the world
Made her that way

Sometimes I want to tell her "hey girl, just lighten up"
You ain't the only one whose had it rough
But she wouldn't take kindly to that kinda stuff
So I just carry her bags out to her car

And it only adds to the baggage she's already got
But if she'd just realize there's still a lot
Left to live
Forget, forgive

And it all gets better
When you want it to
It's up to you
Yea it all gets better
When you want it to

And there's this guy who runs the morning parking lot
Man he sure seems pissed off a lot
I make a joke, I'm like
Hey did you save me a spot?
And I laugh, but he won't

He just shakes his head, and snarls as he waves me through
Takes a swig from his brown-paper 90 proof
Gets him through the day
And it keeps the pain
A little further away

You wonder what makes happy want to go and jump the tracks
And leave us all feelin' like it ain't comin' back
Like we're comatose
Like we're stuck in a nightmare
With a long night to go

But if you open up your eyes you can see the light
Shinin' from the shores of a better life
If you wanna live
Consider this
Forget, forgive

And it all gets better
When you want it to
It's up to you
Yea it all gets better
When you want it to

And it all gets better
When you want it to
It's up to you
Yea it all gets better
When you want it to
When you want it to
Yea when you want it to
Mmm...
