Song of the Day #3,687: ‘Better Now’ – Post Malone

Post Malone sits at Billboard’s #12 spot with ‘Better Now,’ the fifth single from his album Beerbongs & Bentleys. This is the third single from that album — following ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Psycho’ — to reach the top ten.

It’s probably the best of the three, though I’ll admit ‘Rockstar’ gets stuck in my head every time I hear it, for better or worse. This one is inoffensive, except in its use of AutoTune.

[Chorus]
You prolly think that you are better now, better now
You only say that ’cause I’m not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that ’cause you’re not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
Oh-oh

[Verse 1]
I did not believe that it would end, no
Everything came second to the Benzo
You’re not even speakin’ to my friends, no
You knew all my uncles and my aunts though
Twenty candles, blow ’em out and open your eyes
We were lookin’ forward to the rest of our lives
Used to keep my picture posted by your bedside
Now it’s in your dresser with the socks you don’t like
And I’m rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
With my brothers like it’s Jonas, Jonas
Drinkin’ Henny and I’m tryna forget
But I can’t get this shit outta my head

[Chorus]
You prolly think that you are better now, better now
You only say that ’cause I’m not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that ’cause you’re not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
Oh-oh

[Verse 2]
I seen you with your other dude
He seemed like he was pretty cool
I was so broken over you
Life it goes on, what can you do?
I just wonder what it’s gonna take
Another foreign or a bigger chain
Because no matter how my life has changed
I keep on looking back on better days

[Chorus]
You prolly think that you are better now, better now
You only say that ’cause I’m not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that ’cause you’re not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
Oh-oh

[Bridge]
I promise
I swear to you, I’ll be okay
You’re only the love of my life

[Chorus]
You prolly think that you are better now, better now
You only say that ’cause I’m not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that ’cause you’re not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
Oh-oh

    I agree, inoffensive, but not all that memorable.

    Thank you for opening my ears to many different musicians I would never otherwise hear.
