Lyrics

MADE ME A BETTER MAN



LIKE A WHIRLWIND...YOU CAME IN,
NEVER SAW IT COMING.
MADE MY HEAD SPIN, AND I CAN'T BEGIN,
TO TELL YOU JUST HOW BLESSED I FEEL.



DON'T NEED TO KNOW JUST WHAT TO CALL IT,
CUZ IT'S SO CLEAR THAT WE'RE BOTH FALLIN'.
YOU MAKE IT EASY JUST TO LET IT GO,
& BE WHAT IT WILL BE.



MY HEART UPON MY SLEEVE,
ALWAYS THE FOOL THAT RUSHED RIGHT IN,
NEVER HAVING ANY PLAN.
BUT YOU'VE SHOWN ME... THINGS I SHOULD'VE KNOWN,
& DIDN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND....
& MADE ME A BETTER MAN.



MY SUN WAS GONE, ECLIPSED BY FEAR...
SEEMED LIKE I WAS LOST.
BUT BABY THEN I SAW YOU SMILE AT ME,
AND THE SKIES...THEY OPENED UP,
THEY OPENED UP.


MY HEART UPON MY SLEEVE,
ALWAYS THE FOOL THAT RUSHED RIGHT IN,
NEVER HAVING ANY PLAN.
BUT YOU'VE SHOWN ME... THINGS I SHOULD'VE KNOWN,
& DIDN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND...
AND MADE ME A BETTER MAN


DON'T NEED TO KNOW JUST WHAT TO CALL IT...
IT'S CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT WE'RE BOTH FALLIN'....



HEART UPON MY SLEEVE,
ALWAYS THE FOOL THAT RUSHED RIGHT IN,
NEVER HAVING ANY PLAN.
BUT YOU'VE SHOWN ME... THINGS I SHOULD'VE KNOWN,
& DIDN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND...
& MADE ME A BETTER MAN.



HEART UPON MY SLEEVE,
OUTTA MY HEAD I'D CRASH RIGHT IN,
I'D MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN.
BUT YOU'VE SHOWN ME... THINGS I SHOULD'VE KNOWN,
& DIDN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND...
NO, DIDN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND...
NOW I FINALLY UNDERSTAND, AND YOU...
MADE ME A BETTER MAN, YEAH.

like this from the first note. Guitar riff opening is killer...almost like a Zep thing.

12 string!!!! Love it. Vocals have a great modern-rock tone, very present with authority. Nice arrangement. Very radio friendly tune.

Great blend of styles. I really like the vocals and how they were mixed. Well done!!

- Guitar work was pretty much awesome haha
- Tight harmonies
- You definitely put some thought in keeping it interesting with the dynamic, melodic, and rhythmic arrangement. Very well done man

WOW WOW WOW I LOVED THIS SONG! what a great voice - the guitar in the chorus is rockin hot! the bassman is on fire! the voices beautiful! i loved everything about this song!
