Adam Lambert – Better Than I Know Myself lyrics

Cold as ice
And more bitter than a december
Winter night
That's how I treated you
And I know that I
I sometimes tend to loose my temper
And I cross the line
Yeah that's the truth


I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say
Coz if I wanted to go
I woulda gone by now but
I really need you near me
To keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave
I woulda left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know my self.

All along
I tried to pretend it didn't matter
If I was alone
Deep down I know
If you were gone
For even a day I wouldn't know which way to turn
Coz I'm lost without you.

I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say
Coz if I wanted to go
I woulda gone by now but
I really need you near me
To keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave
I woulda left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know my self.

I get kind of dark
Let it go too far
I can be obnoxious at times
But try and see my heart
Coz I need you need now
So don't let me down
You're the only thing in this world I would die without.

Coz if I wanted to go
I woulda gone by now but
I really need you near me
To keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave
I woulda left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know my self.

Coz if I wanted to go
I woulda gone by now but
I really need you near me
To keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave
I woulda left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know my self.

    Indeed, it has two meanings. One is obviously about love. Other is about the two sides, which every person has. Good and evil. I think it's about the struggle people have on balancing two sides. Sometimes good is on top and sometimes the bad one. They can hate eachother, they can be hidden, but no matter what, they both always exist and need eachother to make the whole person with character and personality.

    I feel like this song is about a person trying to find balance between his good and bad side. They can't be without one or the other. The bad side nearly kills the good one, but the bad side saves the good side. That person then finds a way to be both sides without being too much of one side. The person finally finds balance between the good and the bad of themselves. Everyone needs to find a way to do that.

    I feel like its about a person that has lost control, and is slowly killing the old self. Like somebody that used to be really calm, and nice, and responsable, but is now spinning out of control, doing bad things, and is just lost. But that isn't really the person he is, he still has the good side, but its just hidden, and if he was that bad part, then he would have let go of the good part, but he needs it, bc that's who he is. So he breakes the good side free, and becomes both.

    I think that the song can have two meanings. One being where you're in a relationship that may not be going to well, but you know that it'd be worse to leave, because they know you better than you know yourself. The other meaning is the one shown in the music video, where everyone has two sides to themselves, and you can't shut out your other side, because in order to be "balanced" so to speak, you need both your good and bad side to be whole.

    There is always part of us that is always right, but it gat hiden by somany things in so many ways, people don't know who we really are, cause still we pretending, n living a lie, and that is the darkest part of our life which looks perfact for others, n our real part about to left us, tyred of telling us what right is, what make us feel blessed n real is, cause we keep ignoring it, by the time it left us, we don't even know what we up to, don't even know which path we on, n drive our selfes insen, n say please come back our real part, we lost with out you, dat is what really he try to meant for me.
