VERSE 1

Momma, you’ll be so proud of me

Look how far we’ve come

Never once did you not believe

You knew it all along

 

VERSE 2

Daddy, you made a man of me

I am my father’s son

The right, the wrongs, the in-between’s

Help me know for sure

 

PRE-CHORUS 1

Things do get better

And they lied, they lied, they lied

When they said it don’t

 

Things do get better

And they lied, they lied, they lied

When they said it won’t

God in heaven knows

 

CHORUS

Where there’s dark, there’s light

Where there’s wrong, there’s right

Ooh I know that things get better

For the lows, there’s highs

For the blind, there’s sight

Ooh I know that things get better

 

VERSE 3

Brother, brother can you believe

Back when we were young

This was only but a dream

Now, we’ve just begun

 

VERSE 4

Boy, I wish papa could see

The person I’ve become

I’m standing on the family tree

I hope he hears this song

 

PRE-CHORUS 2

Things do get better

And they lied, they lied, they lied

When they said it don’t

 

Things do get better

And they lied, they lied, they lied

When they said it won’t

Now we know for sure

 

OUTRO

Ooh, ooh

I know that it gets better

Ooh, ooh

Oh, whoa, yeah, yeah

Get better, I know it gets better

I know it gets better

Better, better, better, better, better

Yeah

We'd Love to Stay Connected with You.
