Pearl Jam – Better Man lyrics

Waitin', watchin' the clock, it's four o'clock, it's got to stop
Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech
As he opens the door, she rolls over...
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man...
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Ohh...

Talkin' to herself, there's no one else who needs to know...
She tells herself, oh...
Memories back when she was bold and strong
And waiting for the world to come along...
Swears she knew it, now she swears he's gone

She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man...
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...
She lies and says she still loves him, can't find a better man...
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Yeah...

She loved him, yeah... She don't want to leave this way
She feeds him, yeah... That's why she'll be back again

Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better... Man...

    This is about a women who can't leave her husband because. He abuses here and that us is why she stares at the clock. When he comes home, she tells him what he wants to hear. I think he abuses her so she thinks that she won't get anything better than him, so she stays. She finally runs away, but realizes, she can't and goes home for more abuse.
