BETTER THINGS

-words and music by Erik J. Matthews

BORING STORIES FILL THE DAY

WHY SHOULD I LISTEN WITH NOTHING TO SAY

I'VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO


I KNOW I SHOULD TURN AWAY

BUT I FORGOT JUST WHAT I WANTED TO SAY

I'VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO


AND YOU KNEW JUST WHAT I WAS GOING FOR

I'VE GOT PLACES TO BE BUT NOWHERE TO GO

WITH BETTER THINGS FILLING UP MY MIND

WHY SHOULD I WASTE MY TIME

I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY


LAZY DAYS, SAFE AND SOUND

MY BODY FEELS LIKE IT'S ONE WITH THE GROUND

I'VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO


WHERE WILL I BE IN YEARS TO COME

WILL I REMEMBER WHAT WAS SAID AND DONE

I'VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO


AND YOU KNEW JUST WHAT I WAS GOING FOR

I'VE GOT PLACES TO BE BUT NOWHERE TO GO

WITH BETTER THINGS FILLING UP MY MIND

WHY WOULD I WASTE MY TIME

I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY


WITH BETTER THINGS FILLING UP MY MIND

WHY WOULD I WASTE MY TIME


I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER

NO, NO OTHER

I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY
