about

I had a synth and a sequencer and a recording studio date one month away. I started writing and producing as fast as I could.

"Better Than This" is the third song I ever wrote or possibly the second. It showed distinct sophistication and complexity, if not maturity, over "Radio" and "Electric Blue" which I wrote only a few days before.

lyrics

Love won’t last forever
Just you take your time
If we do things my way
We’ll pick up lost time

Don’t look on in anger
Aren’t we tempting fate?
I can’t wait forever
And it’s getting late

Better than this
Anything’s better than this...

I can’t wait forever
Just make up your mind
I can do things your way
But you’re flying blind

Wise up
Get it straight
There’s no time to hesitate
This thing
Can’t you see
Is propelled by gravity

Better than this
Anything’s better than this

BREAK

Love won’t last forever
Just you take your time
If we do things your way
We’ll be flying blind

Watch the ships weigh anchor
Drifting out to sea
Outtakes from old movies
It all makes sense to me

Better than this
Anything’s better than this...

Wise up get it straight
There’s no time to hesitate
This thing can’t you see
Is propelled by gravity

Better than this
Anything’s better than this...

Love won’t last forever
