Maren Morris – Better Than We Found It Lyrics

Better Than We Found It Lyrics By Maren Morris

“If you don’t like it, then get the hell out”
That’s what they yell when I open my mouth
A stick is a stick, a stone is a stone
But who’s gonna care if I don’t?
Who’s gonna change if I won’t?

When time turns us small men to dust
I just hope that I’m proud of the woman I was
When lines of tomorrow are drawn
Can I live with the side that I chose to be on?
Will we sit on our heads, do nothing about it
Or will we leave this world better than we found it?

Over and under and above the law
My neighbor’s in danger, who does he call?
When the wolves at the door are covered in blue
Shouldn’t we try something new?
We’re over the barrel, at the end of one, too

When time turns us small men to dust
I just hope that I’m proud of the woman I was
When lines of tomorrow are drawn
Can I live with the side that I chose to be on?
Will we sit on our heads, do nothing about it
Or will we leave this world better than we found it?

America, America
Divided we fall
America, America
God save us all
From ourselves and the Hell that we’ve built for our kids
America, America
We’re better than this

When time turns us small men to dust
I just hope my son’s proud of the woman I was
When lines of tomorrow are gone
Can I live with the side that I chose to be on?
Will we sit on our heads, do nothing about it?
Can we leave this world better than we found it?

America, America
