A Little Better
Gnarls Barkley Lyrics


Now I can sing you the storyline
And if you like my story fine
But ain't none of the glory mine
See my life was a lonely one
And I was still Momma's only son
With no idea what I'm gon' become
And I didn't have long to know
That you don't have to be grown to go
I could have died so long befo'
Then I finally saw the sign
And I made it on down the line
One step at a time

I feel better!
I can smile at it now, I feel better
Oh, better!
And even a little is still better
Oh, have mercy on me

Oh it's probably plain to see
That I got a whole lot of pain in me
And it will always remain in me
So cold, it's a cryin' shame
Yet here I am, tryin' again
Cause I refuse to die in vain
The circumstances put soul in me
And there ain't no holdin' me
I've got a heart made of gold in me
Ha, can you believe this is where I've been?
And when adversity comes again
I'll deal with it then

I feel better! I can laugh at it now, I feel better, heh heh
Oh, better!
And even a little is still better
Oh, have mercy on me-he

Ah-ah-hah-ah yeah
Mmm, oh-oh-oh!

I said everything's fine, you can take your time
What would be on your mind, if you knew you was dyin'
I would wanna just feel this ah-one more time
I said everything's fine, take yo' time
What would be on your mind, if you knew you was dyin'
I would wanna just feel this ah-one more time
I wanna thank you morning sun
I wanna thank you lowly dirt
Now I know I'm not the only one
I, I wanna thank you friendly ghost
When all the calls were close
It seems like you cared the most
I, I wanna thank you Mom and Dad
For hurtin' me so bad
But you're the best I ever had
I, I wanna thank you

Its so sick to see the crazy emotional and soulful comments. I'm glad that theres other people out there that love and appreciate this at the same level. I'm not a religious person but the second verse lyrics take to me to church...
