Better (Chicago)

You can count on a number of things Like tomorrow the sun's gonna shine There'll be flowers in spring time Poets will make rhymes Couples in moonlight are so ripe to fall Fallin' in love, such a natural thing There's a look in that one person's eyes And the moment we know it We don't want to blow it So we get way too careful and it all slips away You've always told me You can do better And something would always come along, And so I listened, down to the letter 'Til somebody better came along You... you can do better Talkin' to you, you, you, you... You gotta do better! Now I feel like I'm swimming upstream When the current is running so strong I'm a fish out of water The first time I saw you Couldn't keep it together Don't care if I'm wrong But it seems like forever Since we got along You've always told me You can do better And something would always come along And so I listened, down to the letter 'Til somebody better came along You said it so often You thought I'd believe it That I was always doin' it wrong, But you always said that You could take it or leave it So, somebody better came along! [Repeat last two verses] You... You can do better, better. Talkin' to you, you, you... You gotta do better!
