Lyrics Better Than We Found It – Maren Morris

If you don’t like it, then get the hell out
That’s what they yell when I open my mouth
A stick is a stick, a stone is a stone
But who’s gonna care if I don’t
Who’s gonna change if I won’t

When time turns this moment to dust
I just hope that I’m proud of the woman I was
When lines of tomorrow are drawn
Can I live with the side that I chose to be on
Will we sit on our hands, do nothin’ about it
Or will we leave this world better than we found it

Over and under and above the law
My neighbor’s in danger, who does he call
When the wolf’s at the door all covered in blue
Shouldn’t we try somethin’ new
We’re over a barrel, and at the end of one too

When time turns this moment to dust
I just hope that I’m proud of the woman I was
When lines of tomorrow are drawn
Can I live with the side that I chose to be on
Will we sit on our hands, do nothin’ about it
Or will we leave this world better than we found it

America, America
Divided we fall
America, America
God save us all
From ourselves and the hell
That we’ve built for our kids
America, America
We’re better than this

When time turns this moment to dust
I just hope my son’s proud of the woman I was
When lines of tomorrow are drawn
Can I live with the side that I chose to be on
Will we sit on our hands, do nothin’ about it
Can we leave this world better than we found it

America, America..

Hayes
You were born the year
The world stopped turning
The moment I first held you
We stared at each other for the longest time
I knew that very moment that you were special
My heart grew and would never be the same
You’ve been my precious silver lining
These dark last few months

People are dying.
A global pandemic has shut our world down
And people are more afraid, angry
And distant than ever
I don’t know how it got like this
But I will acknowledge my part in it
I have to do better
I will do better for you

Our education must grow alongside our empathy
Anytime I get overwhelmed at the mess we’ve created
I try to see the world through your eyes
Negativity, fear, and bitterness
Haven’t yet touсhed you
You are kind and curious
I want to rekindle that in me
It reminds me of pointillism
The art technique of random
Tiny dots linked together
To create a meaningful, bigger picture
Once you take a step back

I promise to you
That I will step back to let you someday lead the way
I will like you never stop being kind and curious
And I will spend the rest of my waking days leaving
This world that you find so fascinating
Better than I found it
Love, Mom…
