Britt Nicole - Better Lyrics




Hey, girl in the back of the classroom, afraid to stand out
So scared that you say the wrong thing so you don't make a sound
Paper planes in the sky,
Crashing one at a time
Praying that they don't land where you hide

Baby, I've been there
I've seen it all before
Baby, I was you
Hoping for something more
Baby, I promise
Cross my heart that in time it'll get better,
It'll get better

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh
It'll get better
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh
It's gonna get better

Hey, girl in the back of the classroom,
Just be strong
Some days feel like forever
But it won't be long
Until you're sittin' on top of the world, baby, believe it
Like a paper plane in the sky, you'll fly, oh

I've been there
I've seen it all before
Baby, I was you
Hoping for something more
Baby, I promise
Cross my heart that in time it'll get better,
It's gonna get better

I know you're hurting inside
And you just wanna cry
I know you're hurting inside, inside, yeah
But tell all of the shadows "Goodbye"
Show 'em your bright side
I know, I know, yeah, oh
It's gonna get better, so long

'Cause, baby, I've been there
I've seen it all before
Baby, I was you
Hoping for something more
Baby, I promise
Cross my heart that in time it'll get better,
It's gonna get better, yeah

[2x]
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh
It'll get better
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh
It's gonna get better

Hey, girl in the back of the classroom,
Just be strong.

  2. Jocelyn R.

    I wanna cry 😭 this hits deep rn

  3. Holly Erin Williams

    I've always been the type of girl that was an outcast. At one point I was the popular pretty cheerleader and I could get any guy I wanted. That pride and arrogance went to my head and I fell deep in sin. After graduating HS in 2016 I rebelled and started cutting again, cutting was a HUGE problem for me.i lived with the thought in order to be wanted and accepted I had to be skinny so I gagged myself to throw up so I could stay skinny. Around 18, started addictions to drugs, popped pills, started drinking alcohol and lost my virginity to someone who wasn't worth it.
    I fell deep in sin. Even gave my heart ro my ex who was abusive and narcissistic. He made everything my fault and confused me a LOT!! Now, Some odd years later I have walked away from the hurt, from the pills, alcohol, and sexual life I was living. I am now, a SINGLE mommy to a baby boy, a daughter and child of the most High God. I am a NEW person with a new future. Thanks Britt for this song, it eventually got better after I thought it NEVER WOULD!! To the girl or guy struggling, baby I've been there, I've seen it all before, itll get better. Just hold on!! God has you and is never letting you go!!! No matter how bad you mess up.

    Best sog in the world

  8. Crystal Chavez

    Amen GB the ones sing to god (:

  9. Olivia Chernutan

    I used to cut. But I'm SO socially awkward. My friends cant let go of grudges from YEARS ago. Did anyone else hear about the new abortion law in NY? This week has been insane for me. And this year didn't exactly start out the best either. Thankfully now things seem to be looking up a bit. If you need something to laugh at, I was walking between classes reading a book and I almost walked into our Christain school's bus. And the while Boys basket ball team was on it. 🤣 have a good day. Psalm 147:3 "He heals the broken in heart and binds their wounds"

  10. Allyson Hill

    that girl in the back of the classroom, that was me. i was bullied

    This song was made for me I was a bully and I always sit in the corner. I stand up against bully’s and actually I just woke up from a dream about bullies. But I feel that talking to bullies is the only thing you can do. BRING THEM THE GOSPEL. Be a missionary where you are right NOW! 🤟

  15. Kathleen Gonçalves

    Meu Deus que música maravilhosa, BR❤

  16. Kimbley Gales

    Prais good love you Britt

  17. Eloá Bera Santana

    I dedicate this song to my 11year-old self. I'm proud of ya, child 💕

  18. Andrew Sharp

    I'll admit it, this guy loves Britt Nicole's music. This is what I call music - talented songwriting (by the way, Julia Michaels has a credit on this song, which I think is cool), simple beats, great singing, and most of all, the uplifting lyrics that'll get absolutely anyone through the tough times.

    I'm going through a difficult season right now after some former friends chose to head out because of some very controversial comments I made in a really big argument. I've heard the song before and the song crossed my mind and I searched and listened to the song again. Thank you Britt Nicole for being a gifted musician, thank you for a very catchy chorus that tells me life's gonna get better.

  23. sierra batley

  27. Peyton Dedloff

    I sing this to my lil sis who is super shy and tends to get bullied. I went through the same things. I'm telling her what nobody ever told me: that it's gonna get better.

  28. dtxalex

    ❤❤❤❤❤ I wanna marry her

  29. Abby Maken

    I can so relate to girl in back of the classroom that's literally me all the time her music is so uplifting and has uplifted countless others me among them thank u so much

  30. Fifi Fifi

    I feel overwhelmed with all my older friends feeling worthless... please pray for them 💜💜

  31. Jayden Durksen

    This song has inspired me to make a film for my school about a person that struggles with depression and bullying

  32. Priscilla Briggs

    I can relate to this song because I always try to avoid a lot of people because I'm scared they won't like who i am so I hardly socialize with other people sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who struggles with depression but I know I'm not but I feel like I have no one to talk to about my feelings with because I'm scared they will judge me so I don't talk to anyone except my best friend but lately I have haven't really been talking to her because I'm on vacation and she has had her phone taken away I just really wish I could talk to her Britt you inspire me so much I love your music I listen to your music because I can relate to a lot of the songs you write and sing I'm glad I came across your music your music is awesome you inspire many people keep doing what you're doing and people who have the nerves to dislike your songs have no heart I just love your music so much

    Shooting Stars

    It's gonna get better. You just gotta have faith that God will lead you through the hard times and don't be afraid to reach out and ask for help.

  34. grace medhin

    I know it seems weird because this was made last year, but I just wanted to say this song means a lot. Especially to people like me. I'm kind of like that girl you mentioned/sang about in the beginning. I used to be constantly worried about if people would judge me about my skin or about my background (my mom was a teen mom when I was born and almost everybody in my community -including my school- has known). But it's people like you and Alessia Cara (Scars to your beautiful) That change my perspective of things. Later in November, I was able to show myself and make a friend because you guys inspired me and let me know that everything would be alright and that I'm beautiful just the way I am. This actually isn't my account, it's my best friends (Grace). She's a christian and recommended that I listen to your songs. I might even consider becoming a christian myself. Anyway, thanks for your support. You really helped me even though I didn't ask for it. I love you and your songs SO much and I hope you plan on making more songs with your beautiful and talented voice

    grace medhin

    Love, Shantelle (Grace's Friend)

    I really hope that you decide to become a Christian. It will change your life for the best!😘

    Meagan Hernandez Thank you! I hope I can find the time to start going to a Bible Study.

    being a child of God as Britt Nicole and billions are, all is better/ well with us because of the hope we have in Jesus Christ Alone. This song is so good and clearly its touching a lot of hearts so God is at work;)

  52. Mallory Rodman

    I love this song but... paper plates in the sky 😂💀😅

    Anna O.

    No it is "paper planes in the sky" ;)

  53. Ashtivity

    Nice song! I really like it. It shows how somebody struggling with any negative things like depression, that it will get better. I really appreciate your music Britt Nicole. You're truly an inspiration ~ !

  54. Pめぐみいい

    I'm crying listening to this song 😂
    I feel like I'm the weirdest mix of shy and outgoing. It seems like when I'm at school I'm crazy shy to where I can barely talk to people yet when I'm anywhere else I'm not shy at all. I have a friend who's been going through some things and I know she gets even shyer than I do at school. I'm going to send her this song and tell her that we can get over our shyness together!!

    Anna O.

    Megumi CureLovely That's me I am super shy around 99% of people but around that other 1% you would not know I am shy!

    Pめぐみいい

    Anna O. Exactly!! This song has helped me get better though!! I've talked to a lot of new people this school year!! I hope you get better too!! God bless you!!

  70. Hartzell Killen

    Britt you seriously have real talent its like all of a sudden you've upgraded to the new and improved Nicole you really connect to other viewers God has really blessed you I've always loved your songs and always will but now i can really connect to your music now i showed my friend some of your songs from your new album he going through some rough times right now with his household and is feeling really insecure he says that normally the gospel songs he hears are super cheesy and never relate to the evilness that going on in are world but he feels as if you've tapped into his soul it's kind of creepy because my friends and i feel the exact same way keep on staying strong and loyal to God Britt your faithful fans always. Me Hazel and Jaydon the boy, Amanda, Drake Holyn David, and Baisle all my best friends.

  71. Emyra boo

    This one is my favourit because it helps me remember the hard times I've been through.
    I've always been misunderstood.
    Always been a second choice.
    For so many years I've felt like I'm just an overweight on the shoulders of those I'm around.
    I got bullied. I got hurt.
    I cryied for years and years and no one knew except my pillow.

    Last year I reached a high point of cutting my self until I attempted suicide. But I survived.
    And now I believe that I'm more what people tell me that I'am.
    I'm worth fighting for. I'm beautiful and I still got my heart beating.

    So you who is reading my comment please be strong. Even if you feel like there is no one by yourside. I'am.

    Live your life.Create your own happiness.
    Love your soul and body.
    Love you all❤
