Lyrics
Better Times
Mike Lacey 2012

Was a cloak of darkness wrapped around me
Like a rolling fog surrounds the rain
Since she been gone, house is haunted, nights are long
Only memories of broken dreams remain

Chorus
The world was all a shade of grey, chore just getting through the day
Had to shed my skin, so I could rise again
With a notion better times were on the way

Stead of blindly chasing what I wanted
Getting down to what I really need
Living simple, letting go, making room to breathe and grow
Even mighty redwoods start with just a seed

Chorus 2
The world was all a shade of grey, but light is shining through today
I can feel the strength within, and I'm rising up again
Knowing better times are on the way

Refrain
One day at the supermarket counter
Saw a smile like noon in mid July
Got to talking, gonna meet for dinner
Feelings waking up again inside

<2 bar break>

Look ahead to taking on tomorrow
Done with walking, ready now to run
The past is history, new beginning waits for me
Where shadows disappear into the sun

Chorus 2 - Yeah, I feel the strength within, and I'm rising up again
Knowing better times are on the way
