Ama Lou – Better Lyrics

Better By Ama Lou

Even if you heard me, I wasn’t speaking
Tell me that you saw, no, I wasn’t peeking
Don’t let my ghost be forsaken
I was waiting on y’all to fill my grave in
‘Cause you know I’m so much better
Run it ’til it’s just right
I been watching the whole time
My particular is not pride, yeah, yeah
Fuck those whispers in your circle
I will never lean in
Snakes redefining terms
And they named us best friends
Pigeons were birds that we tried saving
But I’ll never waste time on the same bitch again

‘Cause I can be so much better
Anticipate the sunrise, it will buy you some more time
I won’t see you in my next life, yeah, yeah

‘Cause I’m made to be better
No, I was never worried ’bout the pressure
Say I’m up next but whatever
You’d have that be lies, that wouldn’t be wise
You know it could be better, better (‘Cause I could be so much better)
Oh, disconnected phone lines
I’ve been calling my whole life, yeah, yeah
Apprehended confines, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, oh

Yo, I wasn’t really mad and I had no reason
Your competition’s fake, it all comes in seasons
There’s only one Ama who they mean when they say it (Ama, who?)
I’m all over mood boards at your label
Oh I see you tried (Aw)
The city raised me good, born in ’98 (N-16)
Oh, come for me again, that’d be your mistake
I ain’t violent, but you won’t be safe
No need for it, my pen works in other ways

Better, better
Anticipate the sunrise, it will buy you some more time
But I still won’t see you in my next life, yeah, yeah

‘Cause I’m made to be better
No, I wasn’t even thinking ’bout the pressure
Say I’m up next but whatever, whatever
You’d have that be lies, that wouldn’t be wise
You know it could be better, better (‘Cause I could be so much better)
Oh, disconnected phone lines
I’ve been calling my whole life, yeah, yeah
Apprehended confines, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, oh (Apprehended confines)

You won’t catch me grieving (Won’t)
I’ll make time this evening (Catch me grieving)
I run into fires, yeah, you seen it
‘Cause I’ve mastered this blaze before
I’m so sick, yeah, of weeping (Of weeping)
Don’t take mine for weakness (Don’t take mine for weakness)
The same shit that you be speaking
Let’s see who survives at all

‘Cause I’m made to be better
No, I don’t give a fuck about your pressure (I don’t give a fuck about your pressure)
Say I’m up next but whatever
You’d have that be lies, that wouldn’t be wise
You know it could be, could be, could be better (‘Cause I could be so much better)
Oh, disconnected phone lines
I’ve been calling my whole life, yeah yeah
Apprehended confines, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, oh
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah (Ooh)
(Oh, dis-, oh, dis-, oh disconnected phone lines, yeah, yeah)

What’s up?
Hello, you okay? You called me, sorry, I was in the shower
Um, so, I think it’s finished
You think what’s finished?
The EP…
No?!
Yes!
What?
Fucking finally!
