Better By You Better Than Me
Spooky Tooth Lyrics


You can find a way to be my passion
You listen to the blood flowin' in my vein
You hear the teaching of the wind
Tell her what I'm like within
I can't find the words my mind is dim
It's better by you better than me

Guess you'll have to tell her how I tried
To speak the thoughts of hell so long inside
Tell her now I've got to go
Fight in the streets and guide the sword
Tell her the world's not much fallin' for
It's better by you better than me

It's better by you better than me
You can tell her what I want it to be
You can say what I only can see
It's better by you better than me

Guess I'll have to change my way of livin'
Only really know the way I've been
Guess I'll lean to fight and kill
Tell her not to wait until
Finds my blood upon her window sill
It's better by you better than me

It's better by you better than me
You can tell her what I want it to be
You can say what I only can see
It's better by you better than me
It's better by you better than me
You can say what I can see
You can tell her what I want it to be
It's better by you better than me
It's better by you
You know better than me
Yeah you can say what I only can see

You could find a way to ease my passion
You listen to the blood flow in my veins
You hear the teaching of the wind
Tell her why I'm alive within
I can't find the words My mind is dead
It's better by you better than me
Guess you'll have to tell her how I tried
To speak up thoughts I've held so inside
Tell her now I got to go
Out in the streets and down the shore
Tell her the world's not much living for
It's better by you better than me
Everybody
Everybody knows
Everybody
Everybody knows
Better by you better than me
You can tell what I want it to be
You can say what I only can see
It's better by you better than me
Guess I'll have to change my way of living
Don't wanna really know the way I feel
Guess I'll learn to fight and kill
Tell her not to wait until
They'll find my blood upon her windowsill?
It's better by you better than me
Everybody
Everybody knows
Everybody
Everybody knows
Better by you better than me
You can say what I only can see
You can tell what I want it to be
It's better by you better than me
Better by you better than me
You can tell what I want it to be
You can say way all they can see
Better by you better than me
Better by you better than me
You can say way all they can see
You can tell what I want it to be

To my shame, I'm admitting that this is the first time hearing this version. I've heard the Judas version thousands of times.

Reindeer Bermy

me too this is cool

Vortigan07

What?? How are you still alive?!

Manny Ruiz

Almost like hearing the original Black Magic Woman by Fleetwood Mac. For many years I'd only heard the Santana version ( which is definitive version).

Daniel Rampazzo

But like many here...this is the first time I have ever heard this version.

Daniel Rampazzo

Oh yeah, despite both versions having great vocals...the Priest version just kicks ass. I bought Stained Class when it was first released in 1978, and have always loved this song. That whole first side "Exciter", "White Heat, Red Hot", "Better By You", Stained Class"...all killer tracks.

what a great voice. I am surprised this band is not so popular

Joseph Cottone

THANKS TO THE RECORD INDUSTRY, THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY BAND'S THAT WERE OVERLOOKED ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA...

Chris Mawson

Actually there are two vocalists singing, Gary Wright and Mike Harrison, alternating the lines. I think GW starts, MH follows. That's how I hear it anyway.

Steve Daymond

Great song first time I heard it was on a sampler album
