Something Better

Plastic Mermaids

Lyrics

I will change everything, I will be something better

I'll take my hands and i'll write you a lovely love letter 

I'll try my best and i'll put much better clothes on 

I'll wash in places that only you know that i smelt wrong 

Kiss my lips and touch my hair and tell me everything is gonna to be ok 

Yeah i'd like that

Cos i've been staring at this photograph of me and you and i've not ate in days 

and I don't like it 

I know I could've been, should've been someone else but

I tried that once and it's not that good for my mental health 

Still I wish that you were here but I know that's not ok and 

I could pick up the phone but i've not got that much good stuff to say 

Kiss my lips and touch my hair and tell me everything is gonna to be ok 

Yeah i'd like that

Cos i've been staring at this photograph of me and you and i've not ate in days 

yeah I don't like it 

Now i'm not digging for wanky metaphors but it's just not black and white is it?

Live's a colourful thing when you look at it right

And everybody is a body and every body has a mind 

But something got caught up between yours and mine

You told me once in a ticket line, i remember the way your hands felt that day,

The way the light hit your face and how we thought we'd be ok

And if you could just walk down that path, and see that tree again in the garden

Would you really feel like it was all just some shit show you want to shovel right back behind your eyelids

Like some mess to be abandoned turn the clocks right back back and 

These thoughts keep bashing me round, telling me it's all over

Throwing me at the walls and saying i won't make it through October, 

I might not make it until dawn

And like a lighthouse all alone out in the wind and in the storm 

I'm holding on but it hurts my hands are bleeding

And i know you won't hear me scream

And you know what really hurts the worst is you don't even want a single feeling

A single memory to carry on

I know were way broke beyond the mend 

And all the while i'm just living with 

And all the while i'm just living with the fact that I hate my best friend

I hate my best friend and my best friend hates me

Now what

For every mood
