08. Better

Beautiful History: A Hits Collection
by Plumb



 

You live inside a dream
Everything tastes so sweet
As long as it agrees with how you feel
You're dancing in your sleep
'Til all the eyes that look at me
Awaken your anxieties

You're so afraid, so you try to break me, yeah

I don't want to care
And I don't want to hate
And I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
You lash out and blame
And you say all the things that you never meant to say
And try to break me

But in the end, what leaves you broken
In the end, makes you better, yeah

Your face looks so green
When the sun is shining differently
And you're standing in the shade
'Cause face to face you're sweet
Like candy sticking to my teeth
But underneath so damaging

There is no strength in trying to break me, no

I don't want to care
And I don't want to hate
And I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
You lash out and blame
And you say all the things that you never meant to say
And try to break me

But in the end, what leaves you broken
in the end, makes you better

Yeah, I don't want to hate
I don't want to be broken
I don't want to hate you
I don't want to hate
I don't want to be broken
I don't want to hate you

I don't want to care
and I don't want to hate
and I don't want to see you fall too far away
All because of fear
'Cause when you're afraid
you lash out and blame
When you say all the things that you never meant to say
and try to break me

But in the end, what leaves you broken
In the end, makes you better, Yeah



Behind the Song:
“Someone was mean to my husband a few years ago. And all I wanted was for bad things to happen to them. I’m just being honest. And then my husband, a living example of Christ to me, showed me what grace looked like. He prayed for them. He didn’t want to egg their car or roll their house or slit their tires. He prayed for them. And he showed real love to them when they were around. And he was stronger for it. More than that, his faith was stronger for it. That influenced me to change and to grow as well. That which tears us down… only makes us stronger if we LET it. It only makes us a slime ball and the lesser for it if we give in to the temptation of vindication.” – Plumb
