Corey Smith - Better Place

rate me

Tasha's got a room at the county shelter

The cops took her there when her mama got hauled away

Little brother and her can't even stay together

She cries each night wondering why it's gotta be this way

And she says "I wish I was anyone but me"

Yeah she'd pack her life in a heartbeat for a little change of scenery

And she keeps looking for a better place

Somewhere she can wear a smile upon her face

A home to welcome with a warm embrace

There's no way to disguise her lonely eyes

Looking for a better place

Bobby's doing time in youth detention

Pulled a switch blade knife on some boy making fun at school

And all he wanted was a little attention

And a temporary escape from the ridicule

And now he's in real deep with the freaks and the criminals

And he wonders when his time is up if he'll know himself at all

And he keeps dreaming of a better place

Somewhere he can have a little room to make mistakes

A home to help him wash the past away

Oh he don't need too much, just a little love

In a better place

In a better place

Jamie's got a room in a 3-story brick home

Daddy makes a lotta money, mama keeps her laundry clean

And she's got a $200 Abercrombie outfit on

Drives a brand new car that she got when she turned 16

Still she spends every night getting high with her so-called friends

And she's dropping hundred dollar bills on quarterbags, says she's never coming down again

And she keeps looking for a better place

Failing to realize how good she's got it made

Her loving home, she don't appreciate

Oh it's crazy but it's true, she doesn't have a clue

She's living in a better place

In a better place

In a better place

We're all lookin for a better place
