I Wanna Get Better
Bleachers Lyrics


(I wanna get)

Hey, I hear the voice of a preacher from the back room
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 frozen 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 guys down parkway lines
I was losing my mind
'Cause 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 a 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 'til I saw your face
I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)

I go up to my room and there's guys on the ceiling
Cut out their pictures and I chase that feeling
Of an eighteen 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 standin' on the overpass, screaming at the cars

(Hey, I wanna get better)

I didn't know I was lonely 'til I saw your face
I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)

Better, 'cause I'm sleeping in the back of a taxi
I'm screaming out my bedroom window
Even if its gonna kill me, whoa-oh

(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)

I woke up early this morning 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 shoulda put a helmet
And I crash my car 'cause I wanna get 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 'til I saw your face
I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)
(Get, get, get, get, I wanna get)

The lyrics of this beautiful song:

Hey, I hear the voice of a preacher from the back room
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 frozen 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 'cause 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 a 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 'til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better,
I wanna get better
I didn't know I was broken 'til 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 an eighteen 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 'til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better,
I wanna get better
I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better,
I wanna get better
Better, 'cause I'm sleeping in the back of a taxi
I'm screaming from my bedroom window
Even if its gonna 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 shoulda 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 'til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better,
I wanna get better
I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better,
I wanna get better

This song made me shower, get dressed, clean my room, and take a long, silent walk through my neighbourhood. Yesterday I didn't even want to move. Bleachers 1 - My Depression 0. Thank you Bleachers for this song. So much.

@FullTimeSlacker II What are you talking about?

mr.beancouldbreakmyspleen

I know it’s been 4 years since you posted this comment but I truly hope you are doing better. Depression is so so hard to fight. So I’m proud of you for fighting it. You’re clearly an incredibly strong individual.

Hope you’re doing better now!

If a song could do that, then you aren’t really depressed.
