A Better Place, A Better Time

This song is by Toh Kay and appears on the album Streetlight Lullabies (2011).

And so she wakes up
In time to break down
She left a note upon the dresser
And she's right on time
You don't know anything
Right or wrong

I say I know
And she says so
I wanna panic
Yeah, I've had it
I go
"You don't owe anything
To anyone"

But don't take your life
'Cause it's all that you've got
You'd be better off just up and leaving
If you don't think they will stop
And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
I guarantee that you wake in a better place
In a better time
So you're tired of living
You feel like you might give in
Well don't

It's not your time
Looking through the paper today
Looking for a specific page
Don't wanna find her full name
Followed by dates
'Cause when I left her alone
She made a sound like a moan
"You're known
By everyone
For everything you've done"
Fuck buying flowers for graves
I'd rather buy you a one way
Non-stop
To anywhere
Find anyone
Do anything
Forget and start again, love
She said she won't go
It hurts too much
To stand by
You've gotta stop and draw a line
And everyone here has to choose a side
Tonight
The moment of truth is haunting you
Don't forget your family
Regardless what you choose to do
You can't decide
And they're all screaming
"Why won't you?"
I'll start the engine
But I can't take this ride for you
I'll draw your bath
I'll load your gun
I hope so bad
That you bathe and hunt

Annie's tired of forgetting about today
And always planning for tomorrow
Yeah, tomorrow and she said
"The saddest day that I came across
Was when I learned that life goes on without me"
Oh, without me and she said
"If everyone has someone else
I ain't got nobody's love to save me"
Yeah, to save me and she said
"I think I'll pass away tonight
It seems I'll never get it right if it's just me"
Yeah, it's just me and she said

And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
I guarantee that you wake in a better place
In a better time
So you're tired of living
You feel like you might give in
Well don't

It's not your time

Annie said she wouldn't mind
If they never find a cure to all her problems
Her problems and she said
As long as she had someone near
To make it clear, she doesn't need to solve them
Yeah, to solve them and she said
"This loneliness
It's killing me
It's filling me with anger and resentment"
Yeah, resentment and she said
"I'm turning into someone that
I never thought I'd have to be again"

And when you wake up
Everything is gonna be fine
I guarantee that you wake in a better place
In a better time
So you're tired of living
You feel like you might give in
Well don't

It's not your time
And even if it was
I wouldn't let you go
You could run, run, run, run
But I will follow close
Someday you'll say
"That's it, that's all"
But I'll be waiting there
With open arms to break your fall
I know
That you think
That you're on your own
Know that I'm here
And I'll lead you home
If you let me
She said "Forget me"
But I can't
