better

Lyrics

working out a raw deal
doing the best i can
paid someone to fix it
nobody’s willing but i am

i don’t know why
but i expect better

they still want to get paid
walk with the full amount
they got me most of the way
but found an easy out

i don’t know why
but i expect better

turning the screw
fuck a person’s word
fuck me for thinking
i could be heard

i don’t know why
but i expect better

Wow I love this song so much.

I love those droning bass notes and sparse filling out of the chord. So much space and time to think about the lyrics. I loved the Rae, vulgar simplicity of "fuck me for thinking I could be heard". Your singing is beautifully suited to the story and instrumentation.

Really enjoyed my listen a ton 👍
