Getting Better

I smoked my last pack of cigarettes
And I don’t plan to buy one more
I still haven’t quit on the alcohol
But I’m closer than before
I have no control of my dreaming
Or the fact that you still appear
But waking up used to break my heart
Today I didn’t shed a tear
So I’m getting better every day, it seems

I still think about how you take yours
Every morning when I get up
And make my way to the coffee
To pour myself a cup
But now I smile and think of the mornings
That we used to share so well
The breakfast you always made for me
That you now make for someone else
So I’m getting better every day, it seems

‘Cause I don’t crawl when I recall
The crazy times and all the songs we sang
I don’t complain how you broke my heart
Now I grin remembering when
We would laugh until the sun came shining in
No sleep again and then the day would start
Oh, I used to push these pretty thoughts away
So I must be getting better every day

I’ve made a new friend of my best one
That I hadn’t touched in years
And everyday she lays in my arms
And makes sweet music to my ears
At first she just sang of my sadness
But now I hear her make songs of my strength
One day we’re gonna be famous
And I know it’s you I have you to thank
So I’m getting better every day, it seems

‘Cause I don’t crawl when I recall
The crazy times and all the songs we sang
I don’t complain that you broke my heart
Now I grin remembering when
We would laugh until the sun came shining in
No sleep again and then the day would start
Oh, I used to push these pretty thoughts away
So I must be getting better every day
