Jo Dee Messina – It Gets Better lyrics

This old world can be cruel some times
When you're looking for answers
You can't seem to find
No one understands
What you're going through
Oh I know I can get lonely out there
When you feel like nobody cares
Well, you look around thinking
If they only knew
Well I do

I've felt the chill of this world
Right down to the bone
I've walked many a mile
Down this road on my own
I've been through hell on my knees
Come face to face with the devil
And I know it's hard to believe
But it gets better

Time is a healer
But we can't see how
When we're caught in the moment
And the hurting is now
We don't want to see
That maybe some things
Weren't meant to figure out


This old world, it can be cruel some times
When you're looking for answers
Well just keep in mind
No you're not alone
We're all trying to find
Our way through this life
