Sevendust - Better Place Lyrics




Hold on we try to live a dream
We lose the fight again
I take the promise I believe
And keep it close til the end
(Collide) I'll start a war inside
(Now stop) Drop and cover me
My sense of peace is burning
Shutting down, I'm falling down
(I can't believe it's happening to me)

Can I give it all way
Just to get back to that better place
That better place today
And I give everything away
Just to get back to that better place
That better place today

Holding on- I suffer like a fiend
And try and face the day
I gotta say I'm a little relieved
To see you stay til the end
(I try) I took the war inside
(Then I)
And pushed it out of me
My sense of peace is burning
Open now- I'm not falling out
(I can't believe this is happening to me)

Can I give it all way
Just to get back to that better place
That better place today
And I give everything away
Just to get back to that better place
That better place today

(Now stop)
(I try)

Can I give it all way
Just to get back to that better place
That better place today
And I give everything away
Just to get back to that better place

And now it all remains the same
Til I get back to that better place today

Sevendust Better Place Comments
  1. Skizane

    The opening riff of this song kicks my door in and rocks my balls off then steps on my face on its way to raiding my fridge before it stomps my then unattached balls on its way out leaving me crawling after it, begging for more.

  2. Lou Stellabotte

    A heavy rock metal band could never be have melodic vocal harmonies! And Then Came Sevendust!

  3. Natas Blankenship

    This band is a balance to unleash the negative and turn it into a positive point everything about this band is creative and fist up high for the noise they make .

  4. shymickey6

    Not bad, not bad, although I feel like I am settling. Might not be one of my favorite Sevendust albums. They can certainly do better.

  5. Jimi Steenland Sr.

    this album is the shit

  6. source expression

    SEVENDUST IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE

    Donte Moses

    YEAH MINE TOO

  7. Aaron Romo

    David Young

    +Aaron Romo agreed! this song is so bad ass

  8. NuWi

  9. Shakezulah

  14. TheJayspyder

    Gaga? Shoot me now. Usher? Not SO bad...but yeah, nothing compared to 7dust.

  15. Jonathan Abbott

    This was the best song I heard last year. It makes me wish that Marvel would hire them to do their theme songs for every movie from here on out. Listen to "Live to Rise" and just imagine how amazing Sevendust would sound with such incredible inspiration!

  16. GekoSmacko

  29. jberry3206

    The best song on the album... period!!!

  30. razorramone63139

    @airsoftmanic Sounds like you're talking about hitmanyr2kHQ. I tried to view his Avatar video but apparently it contains material from WMG and Fox and has been "blocked on Copyrght grounds"

  31. ilovesabian1n1

    i feel sorry for all those people who like all that pop stuff like lady gaga or usher =P their missing out on GOOD music like sevendust

  32. airsoftmanic

    song of the year, every year, for the rest of time.
    I must say if it weren't for someone making an avatar music video with this song, i would never have found the band.
    sadly youtube felt that violated copyright but at least i found one of my favourite bands.

  33. JonAarm14

    I had to restart the song because I was just not ready for the awesomeness i was about to hear.

    Jimi Steenland Sr.

    JonAarm14 this whole album is like that. they just get better and better

  34. Kent Darden

    These guys are the most underated band on the planet. They're music is so deep and emotional I cant stand it. Every song is like a balld to the theme song that is my life!!

  35. capoono

    Kicks ass! I think this is their best album since Seasons. And I'm loving the emergence of guitar solos on this album, adds so much to the music.

  36. capoono

    Kicks ass! I think this is their best album since Seasons. And I'm loving the emergence of guitar solos on this album, adds so much to the music.

  40. Darius Taylor

    I must say, this is just about one of my favorite 7D songs yet!! They just keep coming with this force that doesn't stop!! They're amazing, and despite being critically under-rated for a decade+ it doesn't stop them from putting out quality music! The new scene could learn so much from them! #TeamSevendust

  41. RTEK WOLF

    Sevendust is and always will be one of the greatest bands of all time.
