Counterfeit - It Gets Better Lyrics

The places I've been to, the voices I've heard
Mistakes that I've lived through, the lessons I've learnt
Cause we're all getting older and some of us dumb
And at 29 I think I've figured it out
We all seek redemption and we all wanna grow
We all want the answers to things we don't know
So please call us useless and please call us kids
We'll hang from the rafters, we'll scream in your face

We'll settle down when we give up
So save your face and get fucked

It gets better, it gets better
Say we're young and we're full of it
We're on the track cause we're breaking shit up
It gets better, it gets better
Though it hurts just a little bit
Stand up if you wanna get out

With no conversation, with nothing to say
Save us the pleasure, get out of the way
If you've seen the bottom, if you've given up
Believe me, my sister, there is hope for us
There is hope for us
There is hope for us
There is hope for us

We'll settle down when we give up
So save your face and get fucked

It gets better, it gets better
Say we're young and we're full of it
We're on the track cause we're breaking shit up
It gets better, it gets better
Though it hurts just a little bit
Stand up if you wanna get out

Stand up, get loud if you feel like it
Stay up, have fun, don't you ever quit
Maybe it all may hurt just a little bit
Don't let anybody tell you that you can't do it
My friends I know that we are fucked
But I've seen a lot of things that I believe I must
Try to bring us all together, show them all your love
Cause things are getting better and there is a hope for us

It gets better, it gets better
Say we're young and we're full of it
We're on the track cause we're breaking shit up
It gets better, it gets better
Though it hurts just a little bit
Stand up if you wanna get out

And I know that we're lost
And we're far from our homes
But there is a way through this
There's a long way to go
So united we stand
And divided we fall
But things do get better
Of that I'm sure

  5. Lea Morkovska

    It may not be intentional (although I lowkey hope it is) but one thing Jamie says “united we stand, divided we fall” seems rather similar to the last verse of Pink Floyd’s song Hey you.

    Great song 👍

  96. Hale the Sour Wolf

    What a positive attitude and optimistic outlook with a cracking song and a video where they all had so much fun it was kind of hard not to grin at it. Plus, Jamie's face and voice helps a lot, too. More people could do with hearing this right about now when the world is kind of bleak.
