A Better Place A Better Time
Streetlight Manifesto Lyrics


So she wakes up
In time to brake down
She left a note up on the dresser
And she's right on time
You don't know anything, right or wrong

I said I know-ow-ow-ow, and she said so-o-o-o
I want to panic but I've had it so I go-o-o-o
You don't owe anything to anyone
But don't take your life
Cause its all that you've got
You'd be better off just up and leaving
If you don't think they will stop

And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
I guarantee you wake in a better place, and in a better time
So you're tired of living
You feel like you might give in, well don't
It's not your time

Flipping through the paper today
Looking for a specific page
Don't want to find her full name followed by dates
Cause when I left her alone she made a sound like a moan
"Your known by everyone for everything you've done"
Fuck buying flowers for grave,
I'd rather buy you a oneway non-stop to anywhere
Find anyone, do anything, forget and start again, love
She said she won't go, it hurts to much, to stand by
You've got to stop and draw a line
Everyone here has to choose a side, tonight,
The moment of truth is haunting you
Don't forget your family regardless of what you choose to do
You can't decide, and they're all screaming "why won't you?"
I'll start the engine, but I can't take this ride for you
I'll draw your bath and I'll load your gun
But I hope so bad that you'll bathe and hunt

Anni's tired of forgetting about today and always planning for tomorrow
(tomorrow) tomorrow Annie says
"The saddest I came across was when I learned that life goes on without me"
(without me) without me Annie says
"If everyone has someone else and I ain't got nobody's love to save me"
(to save me) to save me Annie says
"I think I'll pass away tonight cause it seems I'll never get it right if it's just me"
(just me) just me Annie says

And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
I guarantee that you'll wake in a betterplace, in a better time
So you're tired of living
You feel like you might give in, well don't
It's not your time

Annie says she wouldn't mind if they never find a cure for all her problems
(her problems) her problems Annie says
As long as she has someone near to make it clear she does not need to solve them
(to solve them) to solve them Annie says
"Oh this loneliness is killing me, it's filling me with anger and resentment,"
(resentment) resentmen Annie says,
"I'm turning into someone that I never thought I'd have to be again"

And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
I guarantee that you'll wake in a betterplace, in a better time
So you're tired of living
You feel like you might give in, well don't
It's not your time

Annie's tired of forgetting about today and always planning for tomorrow
Tomorrow Annie says
"The saddest I came across was when I learned that life goes on without me
Without me Annie says
"If everyone has someone else and I ain't got nobody's love to save me
(to save me) to save me Annie says
I think I'll pass away tonight cause it seems I'll never get it right right if it's just mejust me Annie says

And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
I guarantee that you'll wake in a betterplace, in a better time
So you're tired of living
You feel like you might give in, well don't
It's not your time

And even if it was, oh, I wouldn't let you go
You could run run run run, but I will follow close
Someday you will say "that's it, that's all"
But I'll be waiting there with open arms to break your fall
I know that you think that you are on your own
But just know that I am here and I'll lead you home
If you let me she said forget me but I can't

[Verse 1]
And so she wakes up
In time to break down
She left a note up on the dresser and she's right on time
You don't know anything right or wrong
I said I know
And she said so
I wanna panic but I've had it so I go
You don't owe anything to anyone
But don't take your life
Because it's all that you've got
You'd be better off just up and leaving
If you don't think they will stop

[Chorus]
And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
Guarantee that you wake in a better place, in a better time
So you're tired of living
Feel like you might give in
Well don't
It's not your time

[Verse 2]
Looking through the paper today
Looking for a specific page
Don't wanna find her full name followed by dates
Because when I left her alone she made a sound, like a moan
"You're known by everyone for everything you've done"
Fuck buying flowers for graves
I'd rather buy you a one way non-stop
To anywhere, find anyone, do anything
Forget and start again, love
She said she won't go (and that's that)
It hurts too much to stand by
You've got to stop and draw a line
Everyone here has to choose a side tonight
The moment of truth is haunting you
Don't forget your family regardless what you choose to do
You can't decide and they're all screaming "why won't you?"
I'll start the engine but I can't take this ride for you
I'll draw your bath and I'll load your gun
But I hope so bad that you'll bathe and hunt

[Chorus 2]
Annie's tired of forgetting about today
And always planning for tomorrow (tomorrow) tomorrow
Annie says, "The saddest day I came across was
When I learned that life goes on without me" (without me) without me
Annie said, "If everyone has someone else
Well I ain't got nobody's love to save me" (to save me) to save me
Annie said, "I think I'll pass away tonight
Because it seems I'll never get it right
It's just me" (just me) just me Annie said

[Chorus]
And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
Guarantee that you wake in a better place, in a better time
So you're tired of living feel like you might give in
Well don't
It's not your time

[Chorus 2]
Annie said she wouldn't mind
If they never find a cure to all her problems (her problems) problems
And she said, as long as she has someone near to make it clear

[Chorus 2]
Well Annie's tired of forgetting about today
And always planning for tomorrow tomorrow
And she said, "The saddest day I came across was
When I learned that life goes on without me" without me
Annie said, "If everyone has someone else
Well I ain't got nobody's love to save me" save me
And she said, "I think I'll pass away tonight

Everything is gonna be fine
I guarantee that you wake in a better place, and in a better time
So you're tired of living
And you feel like you might give in
Well don't
It's not your time

[Verse 3]
And even if it was so
Oh I wouldn't let you go
You could run run run run but I will follow close
Someday you'll say "that's it, that's all"
But I'll be waiting there with open arms to break your fall
I know that you think that you're on your own
But just know that I'm here and I'll lead you home
If you let me
She said "forget me"
But I can't

+James Cook Really really glad to hear that.

"And when you wake up
everything is going to be fine
I guarantee that you wake up in a better place
in a better time
so you're tired of living
and you feel like you might give in
well don't
it's not your time"

Found this band and this song at one of the darkest times of my life. I was long past ready to die and had everything planned out and prepared. I was so close it scares the shit out of me. I listened to this song almost every day for months. When things were particularly bad I'd put the song on repeat and mouth the lyrics for hours trying to hold myself together. Finally I got the courage to leave and start over somewhere new. Less than a year ago I was half starved to death without the fortitude to leave my house. I have a job now, I support myself, I go outside, I smile again. Things still get rough and I still wake up wishing I was never born sometimes. But I can deal with it now. I'm managing. I'd be dead without this band.

So glad you got your shit together, man. I'm in the place you started from, trying desperately to get my life on track

I'm glad to hear that it makes listening to this song so emotional thinking about how many people it has helped, I'm going through the roughest part of my life and finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope you're doing well :)

@Snowy Fighter he commented that 2 years ago. I know, that's one fucked up reply but still there's probably no point replying :D

I hope you're living a really nice life now.
Wish me luck friend, trying to keep someone else alive who isn't coming out of the darkness.
