Better Than
The John Butler Trio Lyrics


All you want is
What you can't have
And if you just look around man
You see you got magic
So just sit back relax
Enjoy it while you still have it
Don't look back on life man and only see tragic

Because you could be better than that
Don't let it get the better of you
What could be better than now
Life's not about what's better than
You can be better than that
Don't let it get the better of you
What could be better than now
Life's not about what's better

All the time while you're looking away
There are things you can do man
There's things you can say
To the the ones you're with
With whom you're spending the today
Get your gaze off tomorrow
And let come what it may

Because you could be better than that
Don't let it get the better of you
What could be better than now
Life's not about what's better than
You can be better than that
Don't let it get the better of you
What could be better than now
Life's not about what's better

All I know is sometimes things can be hard
But you should know by now
They come and they go
So why, oh why
Do I look to the other side
'Cause I know the grass is greener but
Just as hard to mow

Life's not about what's better than

'Cause all you want is
What you can't have
And if you just look around man
You see you got magic
So just sit back relax
Enjoy it while you still have it
Don't look back on life man and only see tragic

Because
You could be better than that
Don't let it get the better of you
What could be better than now
Life's not about what's better than
You can be better than that
Don't let it get the better of you
What could be better than now
Life's not about what's better than

You could be better than that
Don't let it get the better of you
What could be better than now
Life's not about what's better than
You can be better than that
Don't let it get the better of you
What could be better than now
Life's not about what's better than

Maaaate, listened to zebra in a store in Sydney in 2002 on my travels. Been hooked since. Enjoy.

His music is so moving. Depression killer 4 sure!

Aimee Wood

This was the daily morning song of a student ambassador trip I took to Australia six years ago, and this is the first time I've heard it again. It is brilliant, and I'm surprised as to how I so easily recognized the first few notes.

I know this is an ancient comment, but I also went on a PtoP trip to Australia. I bet we had the same tour guide!
