Better than Iíve even been
Cindy Bullens

There’s been a lot of things said about me
Since that awful day
I’m not the person that I used to be
And that I’ll never be the same

That’s true-- no doubt
But I know more now what life is about

I laugh louder
Cry harder
I take less time to make up my mind and I
Think smarter
Go slower
I know what I want and what I don’t
I’ll be better than I’ve ever been
Maybe I’ll be better than I’ve ever been

If someone told me twenty years ago
That this would be my life
I’d lose the greatest gift that love can show
I’d have said—No, I won’t survive

But don’t count me out
Some times I’m stronger than I’ve ever felt

And I laugh louder
Cry harder
I take less time to make up my mind and I
Think smarter
Go slower
I know what I want and what I don’t
I’ll be better than I’ve ever been
Maybe I’ll be better than I’ve ever been

There’s a curious freedom rising up from the dark
Some kind of strength I’ve never had
Though I’d trade it in a second just to have you back
I gotta try to make some good out of the bad

So I laugh louder
Cry harder
I take less time to make up my mind and I
Think smarter
Go slower
I know what I want and what I don’t
I’ll be better than I’ve ever been
Better than I’ve ever been
