Better Than It Seems
Alvin Cedric

We’ve all been there before
You walking on through until they shut the door
Lived in the afterlife
You don’t get it back when you under the lights
Don’t get it back when you under the lights
I know the pressure, it comes with a price
Trusting His will, either wrong or it’s right, yeah yeah
Something to say when I’m hearing a voice
Hope it ain’t a subliminal void, oh

One day you’ll have to face it
Or you’ll get left behind [2]
(What if)
Every day You’ve wasted
Arrives on the other side? [3]
Oh no, rolling around at a minimum pace
Nothing to say with a smile on my face [7]
I get it or not, it’s a whole lot to taste with You [1][8]
‘Cause it might all be
Better than it seems, yeah yeah yeah yeah, ayy [1][5][6][8]
Better than you think, yeah yeah yeah, ayo
Show me the fire when it’s all said and done [7][8]
But really the spark has just only begun, yeah [4]
You feel like you’re under the gun, yeah yeah

Uh, ooh
I cannot keep what’s let out in the stu (studio)
How can I move or how can I be new?
‘Cause I’ll never make it, I guarantee you, uh
How come I’m faking advice? [7]
Telling my friends that I’m good when I’m dying, yeah
I am over with the truth that I could do it if I tried, yeah
I’ve longed for my joy
I hate when I can avoid it
Say you saw me rolling out my piece again [desperate in life]
I’m at loss of choice
I’ve got you standing on cords, oh

One day you’ll have to face it
Or you’ll get left behind [2]
(What if)
Every day You’ve wasted
Arrives on the other side? [3]
Oh no, rolling around at a minimum pace
Nothing to say with a smile on my face [7]
I get it or not, it’s a whole lot to taste with You [1][8]
‘Cause it might all be
Better than it seems, yeah yeah yeah yeah, ayy [1][5][6][8]
Better than you think, yeah yeah yeah, ayo
Show me the fire when it’s all said and done [7][8]

But really the spark has just only begun, yeah [4]
You feel like you’re under the gun, yeah yeah
Look, trying to calm down
Feeling the love now
Got me pulling the clutch out
Slow down, can’t be crashing the car now
When it’s all gone, who am I gon’ call ’round?
My mind don’t see the visible signs
I’m focused on the tragedies this world gon’ leave behind
Been close to one more time and thinking of crossing lines, yeah

I’ve gone through the fire [7][8]
I’m walking up higher
My only desire, ooh-woah-woah
I’ve been through the fire
I’m walking up higher, yeah yeah

One day you’ll have to face it
Or you’ll get left behind [2]
(What if)
Every day You’ve wasted
Arrives on the other side? [3]
Oh no, rolling around at a minimum pace
Nothing to say with a smile on my face [7]
I get it or not, it’s a whole lot to taste with You [1][8]
‘Cause it might all be
Better than it seems, yeah yeah yeah yeah, ayy [1][5][6][8]
Better than you think, yeah yeah yeah, ayo
Show me the fire when it’s all said and done [7][8]

Better, better
It might be better than it seems [1][5][6][8]
Oh, better than it seems
Na-na-na-na-na
