​Give You Better

This song is by The Correspondents and appears on the album Puppet Loosely Strung (2014).

In the public eye he's sweetness and light
But it's a different story in the cover of night
There's a dark side that he can't help but let rip
And you my dear who takes the full brunt of it

How many times have you followed him home, while he shouts at his phone?
Do you believe his boss keeps him in late?
How many more lies can you take?
Is a count of six rows in a seven day week
A tally that you're keen to keep?
He may not hit you but he's broken your things:
You fix them as another storm spins

I will give you better, I will give you better
I will give you better
Oh you better believe
I will write a letter, I will write a letter
I will write a letter
Giving reasons to leave

I will give you better, I will give you better
I will give you better
Oh you better believe
I will write a letter, I will write a letter
I will write a letter
Giving reasons to leave

The truth is that you like the white water rapids
Of a man who is out of control
I can't give you this but if
I was yours I'd assume the opposite role
You like the white water rapids
Of a man who is out of control
You know the beast wouldn't even care
If his prey bolt the hole

You don't need him like I need you,
You could leave him
Oh why won't you
I know
I know
Your type's a man who likes a fight

I will give you better, I will give you better
I will give you better
Oh you better believe
I will write a letter, I will write a letter
I will write a letter
Giving reasons to leave

I will give you better, I will give you better
I will give you better
Oh you better believe
I will write a letter, I will write a letter
I will write a letter
Giving reasons to leave

From over here it's crystal clear,
This shatters every principle that you hold dear
And you who sees herself as strong
Is going to disappear before too long
Please please please read what I've sent
It clearly lays out my intent
To give you the space to be you again
I haven't seen you smile since you've been with him

I will give you better, I will give you better
I will give you better
Oh you better believe (better)
I will write a letter, I will write a letter
I will write a letter
Giving reasons to leave

I will give you better, I will give you better
I will give you better
Oh you better believe (better)
I will write a letter, I will write a letter
I will write a letter
Giving reasons to leave
