I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER

BETTER WHEN I'M OLD

I WILL YOU BETTER WHEN I'M OLD

I WILL WRAP MY ARMS AROUND YOU

AND KEEP YOU FROM THE COLD

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER WHEN I'M OLD

 

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER

BETTER WHEN I'M BLIND

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER WHEN I'M BLIND

'CAUSE YOU'LL ALWAYS BE A BEAUTY

LIVING IN MY MIND

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER WHEN I'M BLIND

 

WHEN THE RAIN IS FALLING ON THE ROOF

AND THE STARS ARE HID FROM VIEW

WHEN THE MOON IS JUST A SCAR OF LIGHT

AND THE SKY A PURPLE BRUISE

I WILL WAIT HERE IN THE WINDOW

TILL YOU COME BACK AGAIN

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER THEN

 

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER

BETTER WHEN I'M GONE

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER WHEN I'M GONE

YOU'LL BE FILLING UP THE QUIET

PLAYING LIKE A SONG

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER WHEN I'M GONE

 

WHEN THE WORLD HAS FROZEN OVER

AND THE OCEANS ARE ON FIRE

WHEN THE DARKNESS OVERPOWERS LIGHT

AND THE ANGELS' MUTED CHOIR

I WILL HIDE THERE IN THE MEADOW

TILL YOU FIND ME AGAIN

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER THEN

 

BUT I WILL LOVE YOU BEST

BEST WHEN I FORGET

'CAUSE YOU MADE YOUR PROMISES

NOT A ONE OF THEM YOU KEPT

BUT I WILL LOVE YOU BEST WHEN I FORGET, WHEN I FORGET

I WILL LOVE YOU BETTER THEN
