Better
(Markus Rill, Dave Sutherland, Annika Fehling)

It could've been better than anything
could've been brighter than a diamond ring
could've been braver than an old guitar
we could've been bigger than movie stars
Could've been better but it doesn't really matter
it's all about to shatter, it's all about to fall and crumble

Should've been higher than a mountain top
should've been a bubble that would never pop
should've been wishes on the summer wind
we should've never come to a bitter end
Should've been better but it doesn't really matter
it's all about to scatter, do we really wanna let it tumble?

I'm not better than you
you're not better than me
what we're doing is real, it's not make-believe
You stopped looking at me
I can't stop looking at you
so let's stop thinking that one and one is better than two

I would be your ocean if you were the rain
you would be my anchor not a ball and chain
If love can last forever it is not in vain
if only for a second I still feel the same
Yeah, if everything was better maybe none of this would matter
but it'll all wind up in tatters, let's try to keep it real and humble

I'm not better than you
you're not better than me
what we're doing is real, it's not make-believe
You stopped looking at me
I can't stop looking at you
so let's stop thinking that one and one is better than two

I'm not better than you
you're not better than me
what we're doing is real, it's not make-believe
You still think about me
I can't stop thinking 'bout you
so let's stop thinking that one and one is better than two
