Joy Formidable, The - The Better Me Lyrics

Pushing the shame off my back
Telling the soul walk tall and don't lose track
Tipping it out of my shoes
It's weighing me down, it's weighing me down
Leaving the side of my house
Looking to find a friend, then leave again
Cutting the wires within, so I'll follow you now
Where do I begin?

The better me is you
I don't mind
The better me is you
And I know why

Quick, they're locking the gates
We were going nowhere anyway
I'm stepping with the sky
But I can't get close
I just circle wide
What you mean to me
I only whisper, whisper to the trees
You make space out of my side
You can only try, you can only try

The better me is you
I don't mind
The better me is you
And I know why

There's nothing behind us
That says I didn't try


I have to live
I have to live
I have to live with me

  1. Sgt. Bruce

    I miss the feeling of you guys releasing new music. Nobody has your sound

  2. agreen182

    Got what a good song this is. Absolute freaking banger

  3. RockHarchi

    I love this band, and I love you Ritzy Brian ❤️

  4. Toffi Vrazhek

    how can be love so beautiful?

  5. Toffi Vrazhek

    my first thought after i first heard aaarth was "omg she's either pregnant or has just given birth to a child". aaarth is so emm uhhh mature, so grown-up sounding, i mean it is just bigger than all the previous works, it speaks, it tells. i'm astonished and all in love with this work. it's really пиздец как охуенно. i love you, guys. i really do.

    So in 2015 my girlfriend and I were near a covered bridge in Ohio and I seen "The Joy Formidable" written on a guardrail in permanent marker. I took a picture because I was thinking "WTF does this mean?" Well I forgot about it until just now when I was going through old photos. Now I know what it means and I'm happy I do.

    What a great sound these guys have, how can a modern band bring back memories of being a teenager in the 90’s? They would of been huge back then.

  8. Peter Booth

    God damn you guys are a beautiful force. 🤘

  9. sergio basilioli

    I would love to see these guys in Rome one day.
