“Better Days” Sung by OneRepubic
Better Days: Lyrics

Oh, I know that there’ll be better days.
Oh, that sunshine ’bout to come my way.
May we never ever shed another tear for today.
‘Cause, oh, I know that there’ll be better days.

Wakin’ up in California,
But these clouds, they won’t go away.
Every day is like another storm, yeah.
I’m just tryin’ not to go insane.
Yeah, and the city shinin’ so bright,
So many dark nights, so many dark days,
But any time I feel the paranoia,
I close my eyes and I pray.

Oh, I know that there’ll be better days.
Oh, that sunshine ’bout to come my way.
May we never ever shed another tear for today.
‘Cause, oh, I know that there’ll be better days.

Been waking up to a new year.
Got the past million miles away.
I been waking with a new fear (New fear),
But I know it’ll wash away.
Whatever you do, don’t worry ’bout me
I’m thinkin’ bout you, don’t worry ’bout us.
‘Cause in the morning everything can change, yeah,
And time will tell you it does.

Oh, I know that there’ll be better days.
Oh, that sunshine ’bout to come my way.
May we never, ever shed another tear for today.
‘Cause, oh, I know that there’ll be better days.

Better days (Better days)
Better days (Better days)

May we never ever shed another tear for today.
‘Cause, oh, I know that there’ll be better days.

May we never ever shed another tear for today.
‘Cause, oh, I know that there’ll be better days.
