Rich Cronin – “It Only Gets Better” Lyrics

Yeah, check my style for real
Still dropping rhymes without a record deal
I used to think I was meant to be on top
But they looked the other way when the record flopped
I messed up, due to much self-pity
Became the biggest lush in the whole damn city
I was obsessed with this chase for wealth
Till the doctor said, “Rich, it’s about your health.
Your blood’s messed up, it don’t look good.”
I couldn’t stop time, but I wished I could

Let it all just fade away
Everything just starts to fade
Every day like today
Just one think I’d like to say
It only gets better

I’m sitting on a cloud and I’m looking down
Wish I could tell the world that it only gets better, it only
gets better, yeah

I was a dead man walking down the green mile
Forgot how to laugh, couldn’t even fake a smile
Pushing tears out my bloodshot eyes
Cut myself with needles just to prove I’m alive
I told myself this can’t be real
I can’t believe I’m feeling all these things I feel
I need an out from this endless pain
It really don’t seem like it’s meant to change
But here I am, it’s a brand new day
Taking back everything they took away, c’mon

Let it all just fade away
Everything just starts to fade
Every day like today
Just one think I’d like to say
It only gets better

I’m sitting on a cloud and I’m looking down
Wish I could tell the world that it only gets better, it only gets better, yeah

Now I know for sure, there’s gotta be a better way
Livin’ a better life, no strife, the time is gonna be alright
Just breakin’ away, we’re makin’ a way,
in fact I see a better day
If I could tell the world, I’d only have one thing to say
We’re gonna be alright tonight, there’s such a better place,
that’s right
Just breakin’ away, we’re makin’ a way,
in fact I see a better day

I’m sitting on a cloud and I’m looking down
Wish I could tell the world that it only gets better,
it only gets better

I’m sitting on a cloud and I’m looking down
Wish I could tell the world that it only gets better,
it only gets better, yeah
