Lyrics for the Day – Make You Better

A great one from The Decemberists

I want you
Thin fingers
I wanted you
Thin fingernails
And when you bend backwards
I wanted you
I needed you
Oh-oh
To make me better
I’ll love you
In springtime
I lost you
When summer came
And when you
Pulled backwards
I wanted you
I needed to
Oh-oh
To make me better
Oh-oh
To make me better
But we’re not so starry-eyed anymore
Like the perfect paramour
You were in your letters
And won’t it all just come around to make you
Let it all unbreak you to the day you met her
But it’d make you better
It’d make you better

I sung you
Your twinges
I suffered you
Your tattletales
And when you broke sideways
I wanted you
I needed you
Oh-oh
To make me better
Oh-oh
To make me better
But we’re not so starry-eyed anymore
Like the perfect paramour
You were in your letters
And won’t it all just come around and make you
Let it all unbreak you to the day that you met her
And it’d make you better
Did it make you better?
Make you better

And all I wanted was a sliver to call mine
And all I wanted was a shimmer in your shine
To make me bright
‘Cause we’re not so starry-eyed anymore
Like the perfect paramour
You were in your letters
Won’t it all just come around and make you
Let it all unbreak you to the days you met her
But it’d make you better
It’d make you better

What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World.jpg
