Rex Orange County - It Gets Better Lyrics

Looking back, I guess that ignorance was a breeze
I thought I knew everything but I was naive
Didn't understand it until the age of 18
Yeah, even then I was blind
2012, I remember being in need
True, 2015, you were fallin' for me
You sent through a love letter for me to read
And it's engraved in my mind

She changed the world I know
And it's better for it
Four years later, and look where we really are
Look how far we've come
Look at us now

Oh-oh, we're flying, I finally know I'm here for a reason
Thank you for waiting on me
I'm dying to see her, she's my favourite ever season
Thank you for everything

January, baby, I was takin' my time
Spending summer and then we'll be good in July
Why can't it be like this for the rest of my life?
Huh, no, I wouldn't mind

'Cause she changed the world I know
And it's better for it
Four years later, and look where we really are
Look how far we've come
And nothing's changed that much

Look at us now, I'm proud of you
Oh-oh, she's on her way towards me
That means it all gets better soon
I hope my world feels better soon
(I hope my life feels better soon)
You let me do what I needed to
So this one's for you
'Cause even when my worst tricks get in the way
You're here to help me feel safe
I don't need to be with anyone else
I don't need to explain
No, I don't need to explain

She changed the world I know
And it's better for it
Four years later, and look where we really are
She changed the world I know
And it's better for it
She changed the world I know
Look at us now
(She changed the world I know)
I'm dying to see her
(And it's better for it)
Four years later, and look where we really are
(She changed the world I know)
I'm dying to see her
(And it's better for it)
Look at us now

    In my opinion, this is the best song on this album. It's so personal, and it feels like it comes from a place of genuine vulnerability. I feel his emotions on this track, and it's INCREDIBLE.

  26. Alan Bowes

    When you get to 47, you can lose touch with the music scene. Other things take priority in life
