Oh Wonder - Better Now Lyrics




You've been through it all
And I wait for the call just to know
If you're better now

22 hours, pacing the room
Praying for you, hot cup of coffee
They said you're sleeping, no news is good
Nothing to do, cold cup of coffee

Never been scared about the future
Don't think I'll make it if I lose ya

So I hope you're feeling better now, better now
Better now, better now
Yeah, I hope you're feeling better now, better now
And they've lifted the dark clouds
'Cause you've been through it all
And I wait for the call just to know
If you're better now

42 hours, the endless bleep
Vending machine, hot cup of coffee
I brought you flowers, wish you could see
Yellows and greens, cold cup of coffee

Never been scared about the future
Don't think I'll make it if I lose ya

So I hope you're feeling better now, better now
Better now, better now
Yeah, I hope you're feeling better now, better now
And they've lifted the dark clouds
'Cause you've been through it all
And I wait for the call just to know

I hope you're better now
I'd do anything for you to be better now

Better now
I hope you're feeling better now
And I hope you're feeling better, better now
And I hope you're feeling better now
And I hope you're feeling better, better now
I hope you're feeling better now
And I hope you're feeling better, better now
I hope you're feeling better now

So I hope you're feeling better now, better now
Better now, better now
And I hope you're feeling better now, better now
And they've lifted the dark clouds
'Cause you've been through it all
And I wait for the call just to know

You deserve to feel better now

Oh Wonder Better Now Comments
  1. Nathan Tew

    What’s with the jarringly dissonant notes at the “bridge/instrumental” part of the song? 2:29, 2:37, 2:45, 2:54

  2. thecl0wnc0rperation :O

    I thought of my late grandparents while listening to this. Thank you.

  3. Heidi Hollister

    Such beautiful voices!

  4. Fntmn

    from 2:13 true gold

  5. Queen Lee-mayes

    I absolutely love the ending!!!

  6. JZ909

    I know this isn't what the song is about, but it makes me think of my best friend, the woman I love with all my heart. She was abused for years as a child, and then some more as a teenager. She self medicated to numb the pain of what had been done to her, and lost her fight with addiction 5 months ago. I hope she's out there somewhere, finally feeling better now.

  8. Benjamin Law

    I swear I heard the word fuck at 2:48-9. If so, I think that's a creative way they were able to capture the emotion of dealing with a loved one healing from something. We all get emotional when traumatic things happen to our family, really can feel it in their singing that they witnessed something that was hard.

  9. Ariel Loopie

    I've never cried so much during a song before. I love you OW. This song is the first I'll listen to when I graduate highschool and college and when my parents become US citizens. This year has been so tough on me. I'm only in 8th grade but it feels like I've been sad for 100's of years. I feel like the worst person alive when I cry for no reason because I know that people out there are in worse situations than I am. Even though I can't say the same for me right now your feelings are valid, crying doesn't make you a crybaby, it just means that you've been strong for so long. I hope you feel better soon or now. You deserve to feel better.

  10. Princess Santiago

    See you in manila!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. butterfly girl

    Very cool song, love this. I feel better that I listened to this. Thank you

  12. Tawnie Kleckner

    Daddy, you were sick for so long, i hope youre better now in heaven young and whole again. Mommy, you suffered a hard life but made my life a gift, you battled for so long and i hope youre talking with dad letting him know we'll be better soon and youre better now.

  13. Shayla

    this song makes me glad i've stayed alive long enough to hear it

  18. Amanda Low

    Haven't really listened to 'pop' much, but you guys have great talent. What I like about your songs is that they are youthful, human, authentic.

  19. Hannah Purdy

    To whoever read this comment: You are amazing. I hope you have a good day and are feeling good <3

  20. Bubble Vampire

    My brother passed nearly a year ago, I still feel the disbelief because a future without him just doesn't seem possible. This song takes me back to the Times he had close calls and how I'd constantly worry only for us to laugh after. How bloody care free we were. God I miss him.

  21. 131 Clarify

    "They said you're sleeping, no news is good" Fuck this is so much better now!

    _Lyrics:_

    You probably think that you are better now, better now
    You only say that 'cause I'm not around, not around
    You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
    Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
    You know I say that I am better now, better now
    I only say that 'cause you're not around, not around
    You know I never meant to-

  35. Gabriella Jaimez

    December 14, 2018- was the worst day of my life. I lost my mom due to her drug addiction, and I felt like it was my fault. I should have done more to protect her. I didn’t celebrate my 23rd birthday and spent the whole day crying. This song made me cry instantly, I think I’m ready to allow myself to feel better. Thank you so much for this song. 💕

  36. ol shakey

    Wonderful music, so warm

  38. RoseShell

    This is the only thing that makes me feel warm, like a little kid again, like nothing is wrong in the world. These are the little things I appreciate, when music makes me feel like the world pauses for a few minutes.

  52. Victoria

    I lost a friend months ago. I'm not fine, but I'll stay. Thank you.

  53. Heni Hanifah

    In the first minute listening to this song, I cried. This song sent me back to the moment when I'm sitting in a quite HCU room, waiting for my mom, who experienced a stroke, to wake up. I can still remember the beeping sound from the heart rate monitor. I watched her sleep. I prayed for her. I don't think I'm able to hold my tears when I'm watching you play this song at a concert.


    "Never been scared about the future. Don't think I'll make it if I lose you."
    I'm better now, mom. I hope you're getting better, as well.

  54. 소이빈

    Their songs always make me wanna become a better person. I'll be walking down the baker street in London, listening to this, pondering about life and how I ended up here. Then I'll randomly grab a book from the store that will change my life. Reading it, until the sunrise, would make me realize what I've been missing in life: myself.

  55. snel

    All I could think about while listening was when my dad was hospitalized for a stroke two years ago..he pulled through and thankfully is pretty much the same as he was before. Only some differences in his personality, but I love him and I'm so happy he made it. It was the worst time in my life but I had a wonderful boyfriend to support me and I'm just so glad that he's better now.

  56. Sleepless Music

    Another great music from Oh Wonder. 🎶💕🎶 I feel better now.

  57. liovigildo ubiticio tinoco torres

    El GP de México al fin terminó y a esta hora ya todo está mejor

  60. Mariel Victorio

    the timing...i really needed this type of music now

  61. Blue Dream Gritty

    Love you guys! I've fallen in love with my twin flame in 2016 and your music has been helping me on my spiritual journey. All of your songs resonate with me on this journey of love😊 Namaste to you all. I recognize the love you have for each other and for your music. Simply beautiful. Aloha🤙

  62. Adhi S

    2 weeks ago, I went through a similar "scenario" as this song. Just that sadly, the person I was accompanying at the hospital didn't make it through. It was really tough to see him suffer throughout the night. Well I guess he is truly "Better Now"

    Thank you Oh Wonder for yet another incredible song. The last line is really comforting for the soul.

  63. Zhanel Nurbekova

    I didn't know that I need this before I heard this... So adorable.

  64. Alex Wishart

    This song keeps bringing me to tears, having battles with manual illness and having been so close to people who have been on the brink of taking their life, everyone deserves to be better. Tomorrow will always be better than the day before and no matter how dark it may get the sun will rise again

  65. Anna Gabrielli Da Silva

    I can’t wait for the acoustic version!!! This is so good!

  66. Kyo Saota

    i'm in love

  67. Isso Lee

    This is the song that I needed❣️

    same vibe as in hallelujah

  69. Joey Verdugo

    Damn this song really hits 😖

  70. Davey Van 't Padje

    I feel better now.

  71. RainStricken

    I really hope that some day I can wake up, say "I feel better now", look at the beautiful scenery outside my window, and actually appreciate it.


    I hate pretending to like things.
    I hate pretending to be happy.
    I hate pretending to care.
    I hate pretending to have feelings.
    I don't know if I have depression, but I'm so numb that I wouldn't mind not ever knowing. I don't even cry anymore.

    William Thomas

    Same dude. Same.

    Orilio

    I feel you man we're in this together

    same old panda

    It does get easier. It does get better. What you said was so relatable. Now I'm much better. Hold on and fight for yourself. We change everyday. The suffering will diminish and go away someday
