Better man (acoustic version)

from by Solo

/

about

The best version of this song available. An acoustic version recorded for a limited live-cd (Solo - Selection). We were absolutely pleased with the outcome of this one.

It's a song about predestination. You can try to become what you want, but you'll be what you are. And you'll know where to go, by living..

lyrics

Better man

Could have been a better man
A better lover and a better friend
I could have been what I was told to be

Could have been what you wanted to
But I never do the things I should
Will I become what I have been all along

It takes time to find your life
And a life to find that time
It takes as little as we know
It takes passion, it takes peace
Fights and disbelief
But where life leads you, you must go

Could have been a poet or
Simply be the boy next door
Off to war, a soldier smoking roses

I have had my money’s worth
Bought and sold and feinted hurt
But destiny is the ground beneath our feet

When it all comes down
When it all blows up
When the choices have been made
When it all blows up
When it all comes down
We are free to choose our fate

It takes time to find your life
And a life to find that time
It takes as little as we know
It takes passion, it takes peace
Fights and disbelief
But where life leads you, you must go
