Bleachers – I Wanna Get Better lyrics

Hey I hear a voice of the preacher from the backroom
Calling my name and I follow just to find you
I trace the faith to a broken down television
And put on the weather
And I've trained myself to give up on the past
'Cause I froze in time between hearses and caskets
Lost control when I panicked at the acid test
I wanna get better
While my friends were getting high
And chasing girls down parkway lines
I was losing my mind
Because the love, the love, the love, the love
The love that I gave wasted on a nice face
In a blaze of fear I put a helmet on helmet
Counting seconds through the night
And got carried away
So now I'm standing on the overpass
Screaming at the cars hey! I wanna get better
I didn't know I was lonely
'Till I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn't know I was broken
'Till I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better

I go up to my room and there's girls on the ceiling
Cut out their pictures, and I chase that feeling of 18 year old
Who didn't know what loss was
Now I'm a stranger
And I miss the days of a life still permanent
Mourn the years before I got carried away
So now I'm staring at the interstate screaming at myself
Hey! I wanna get better!
I didn't know I was lonely
'Till I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn't know I was broken
'Till I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better

'Cause I'm sleeping in the back of a taxi
I'm screaming from my bedroom window
Even if it's gon' kill me!

Woke up this morning early, before my family
From this dream where she was trying to show me
How a life can move from the darkness
She said to get better
So, I put a bullet where I should've put a helmet
And I crash my car 'cause I wanna get
Carried away
That's why I'm standing on the overpass,
Screaming at myself hey! I wanna get better!

I didn't know I was lonely
'Till I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn't know I was broken
'Till I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
