R I T U A L – Better By Now lyrics
[Verse 1: Gerard O'Connell]
I close my eyes and count to ten
I've made mistakes I know I'll make again
I write messages I'll never send
I'm not okay, but if you want then I'll pretend
It's all good, I'm not scared and I'll hold on

[Chorus: Gerard O'Connell, Gerard O'Connell & Katie Taylor]
But you said I'd be better by now
All my friends said I'd be better by now
But who cares? 'Cause I'm not better by now, no
I'm not better by now

And you said I'd be better by now
All my friends said I'd be better by now
But who cares? 'Cause I'm not better by now, no
I'm not better by now

[Verse 2: Katie Taylor, Gerard O'Connell & Katie Taylor]
Another 4AM and my battery is low
I still miss you checking that I got home
I leave the lights on when I sleep alone
I know should but I just can't let know
It's no good, I'm still scared, wish I was strong

[Chorus: Gerard O'Connell, Gerard O'Connell & Katie Taylor]
But you said I'd be better by now
All my friends said I'd be better by now
But who cares? 'Cause I'm not better by now, no
I'm not better by now

And you said I'd be better by now
All my friends said I'd be better by now
But who cares? 'Cause I'm not better by now, no
I'm not better by now

[Bridge: Gerard O'Connell & Katie Taylor, Katie Taylor]
I miss you, I miss me
The me I was before, the me before this all
'Cause if I miss you, then I miss me
The me I was before, the me before this all
Yeah, I miss you and I miss me
The me I was before, the me before this all
Yeah, I miss you, I miss me
The me I was before

[Chorus: Gerard O'Connell, Katie Taylor, Both]
And you said I'd be better by now
All my friends said I'd be better by now
But who cares? 'Cause I'm not better by now, no
I'm not better by now

And you said I'd be better by now
Not better by now
All my friends said I'd be better by now
Not better by now
But who cares? 'Cause I'm not better by now, no
I'm not better by now
