lyrics

I wouldn't say I'm numb, but I have lost a lot of feeling
I let go of my grudges and I've tried to stop complaining
I pick up on your hints but I still wish that'd you'd stop wishing
I have to do what's best for me, my priorities are shifting

I am so much better than I used to be
Am I so much better than I used to be?

I wouldn't say I'm great, but I've been feeling much less empty
I let go of my secrets, I don't care who's out to get me
We hate to feel so helpless, but I'll dare to say it again:
Forget about the problems of the world, cause you can't fix them

I am so much better than I used to be
Am I so much better than I used to be?

I've seen the
Highest highs and lowest lows
With confidence that never shows
I'm right here, and somehow
I am so much better now

Forgive, forget, and futz around, go driving in the nighttime
I cover more distance in one step than you will in your lifetime
If I work hard I'll get that nine-to-five, or so I'm told
No matter what happens, I'm growing up but I'm never growing old

I am so much better than I used to be
Am I so much better than I used to be?

I've seen the
Highest highs and lowest lows
With confidence that never shows
I'm right here, and somehow
I am so much better now

Stuck between my teenage fears and a grown-up sense of self
I'm sick of feeling sorry for what makes your life less hell
I don't know what's going on, and frankly, I don't care
Just call me up this weekend, and you know that I'll be there

I've seen the
Highest highs and lowest lows
With confidence that never shows
I'm right here, and somehow
I am so much better now

A new disguise I've come to know
With arrogance that starts to show
I'm lost here, yet somehow
I'm still so much better now
I am so much better now
