03. Better Life

The Peace of Wild Things
by Paper Route



 

All this trouble that I know
Every swing I take and stone I throw
All the bridges that Iíve burnt
All the new ways that I hurt

You gave up and I lost track
When you love someone who donít love back
It donít matter whoís at fault
Nothing matters now at all

I might have said too much
I might have said too much
I wonít forget your touch
Iím saying too much

A better life is waiting

And what is done is done
Piece together whatís been broken
Can you ever give up someone
A better life, a better life is waiting

All this fire in my veins
From a heart thatís trapped in my ribcage
Burning through my fingertips
Burning everything I kiss

All the memories that you live in
Are just another door that Iím closing
In a hall thatís infinite
But at least I can admit it

I might have said too much
I might have said too much
I wonít forget your touch
Iím saying too much

A better life is waiting

And what is done is done
Piece together whatís been broken
Can you ever give up someone
A better life, a better life is waiting

Oh, I know.
Iím saying too much.



Behind the Song:
(JT) One of our first sit downs with Robert Marvin was the night he played for us the beginning to this track. It sounded like a sad dream to me. It made me pace, made me reflect, made me feel the need to sing. I woke up at 6am the next morning and sang the entire verse through the chorus melody into my phone. When revisiting most things recorded on my phone at 6 in the morning, it quickly goes from ďgreat ideaĒ to ďcomedyĒ .. but this was different. It still worked. That day I went to the studio and tracked it. We even kept the original chorus lyrics that I sang into my phone. So I guess it came to me in a dream, Ö a sad dream.
