Rather Be
The Verve Lyrics


There's no evil introductions
No dark corridors of fame
You won't find your fortune
You might find some pain

I wanna lie, lie together
Feels like our last embrace
In a world full of confusion
Yeah the human race
But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?

Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
I don't wanna let you go
Sometimes these feelings hit me, I start to cry
'Cause I won't ever let you go

Oh my my my my we're multiplying
Always living under some cloud
Always on the eve of destruction
Make you wanna scream out loud
And as I watched the birds soar
Mighty lies and wishes spun
Oh mama mama why I'm still crying
Oh now the day is come

'Cause I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?

Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
I don't wanna let you go
Sometimes these feelings hit me, I start to cry
'Cause I won't ever let you go

But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?
But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?

Sometimes this feeling hits me
Sometimes this feelings hit me
These feelings are oh so rare

There's no need for introductions
No dark corridors or things
You won't find your fortune
You might find some pain
I wanna lie, lie together
Feels like our last embrace
In a world full of confusion
Yeah, the human race
But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I've found they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?
Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
I don't wanna let you go
Sometimes these feeling's hidden
I start to cry 'cause I won't ever let you go
We're multiplying
Always living under some cloud
Always on the eve of destruction
Make you wanna scream out loud
And as I watch the birds soar
My lies in which you spun
Oh mama, mama why I'm still crying?
Oh, another day is come
'Cause I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I've found they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?
Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
Don't wanna let you go
Sometimes these feeling's hidden
I start to cry 'cause I won't ever let you go
But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I've found they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?
But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I've found they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?
Sometimes this feeling gives me
Sometimes this feeling gives me
These feelings are oh so rare

I Provide Lyrics

[Verse 1]
There's no need for introductions, no dark corridors of fame
You won't find your fortune, you might find some pain
Oh I wanna lie, lie together, feels like our last embrace
In a world full of confusion, yeah the human race

[Chorus 1]
But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?

[Chorus 2]
Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
I don't wanna let you go
Sometimes these feelings hit me, I start to cry
Because I won't ever let you go

[Verse 2]
Oh my my my my we're multiplying
Always living under some cloud
Always on the eve of destruction
Make you wanna scream out loud
And as I watched the birds soar
Mighty lies and wishes spun
Oh mama mama why I'm still crying
Oh now the day is come

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]

[Chorus 1]
But I'd rather be here than be anywhere

Sometimes this feelings hit me [x2]
Oh these feelings are oh so rare

I love this song, is more deep than it looks for me, a song that if you are depressed, you can feel how the lyrics describe what are you feeling and that thought of ''I guess better be here than anywhere'' that keeps you pushing a bit more and don't do something stupid.
The magic of this song is that, when you pass that depression status is when you really understand the meaning of the song. At least for me is about a "happy" acceptation of what is life, sometimes you are in deep shit, and some others you are full of joy.
Is a song that makes you be greatfull for being human "you know this feelings I have found they are all so rare, is there anywhere better than here?" If we wouldn't have bad moments, we wouldn't enjoy the good ones.

This is what I thought of this song too

Абсолютно согласен с тобой!🎼🎻🎸

Desde mi punto de vista este grupo es el mejor, pero la gente no supo apreciarlo bien y solo un album salio exitoso, por favor, busquen más temas de este grupo, es uno de los mejores de los años 90s sin duda.
