From the recording YOU BETTER HOPE

Lyrics

You try to cut me through the surface
You wanna hurt me with a purpose
You seem to think that I deserve this
Where do you get your information
Draining out all of my patience
This shouldn't be my obligation

I keep looking for a silver lining
Hiding somewhere in the bushes
Trying, finding no
No one to hold
I keep hoping it'll just get better
'Stead of getting all my shh together
Time to go
If you want the gold
Then you better hope

You're good at giving ultimatums
I'm trying hard to separate from
This situation before I'm numb
Don't wanna overthink things
But safety nets aren't appearing
Just think of all the words I don't sing

I keep looking in the rearview mirror
Clear of everything I wish I'd steered from
On the road (on the road)
But forward I go (go)
I kept moving in the wrong directions
Lessons gracing me with new discretion
You should know (you should know)
That if you want me broke
Then you better hope

Now I know, now I know, now I know better
Now I know, now I know, now I know better
Now I know, now I know, now I know better
Know better, know better (now I know)
Now I know, now I know, now I know better
Now I know, now I know, now I know better
Now I know, now I know, now I know better
Know better, know better

Now I know better (whoa)
