Lyrics

A Better Me (for Andy)

you float into my life like an echo of a dream
and I start to understand what everybody means
when they say You've never lived until you've lived for your baby
and the sound of you laughing makes me think that maybe
there's a chance of redemption in the smallest act of giving
and it feels so different to be awake among the living
and in my quiet moments I must admit its true
as you lay breathing deeply when i look at you
I can see
a better me
will you be
a better me

you crawl into my corners and invade my intentions
and drive me to distraction with a hundred thousand questions
can I keep it all together, keep both hands on the wheel
now that everything is actual and everything is real
will you see
a better me
in you I see
a better me

you're like a perfect mirror where everything is clearer
and i hope that you'll be braver and walk a little farther...

I lay awake and worry that the world has gone to hell
and the clouds start to gather over fears I can't dispel
but a father finds faith in the belly of belief
and when you reach toward me I think with some relief
that I can be
a better me
will you be
a better me
in you I see
a better me
will you be
a better me
