The Better Side of Me

by Ken Davis feat. Lucas McPherson



I've always admired Paul Kelly's story-telling. Here is my take on troubled love and uncertain redemption.


I got a plane for Brisbane bound
And a bus to Byron Bay
I went looking for the sun
Gotta start a brand new day
Now everything's gone wrong
There's nothing left to say
Got myself some Fake ID
Cut my hair and changed my name

Gonna ride the perfect wave

You...were once the girl next door
Playing hide and seek
And nothings really changed
Your magic and mystique
The secrets that you keep
Keep tearing us apart
If you could only see
Your way out of the dark

A desperate refugee
If you could only see
The better side of me

That was ten long years before
I found a note under my door
There's a history I can't ignore
I'm shaking as I make the call

Now I'm on the midnight train
A life is on the line
There's no way to explain
This reckless state of mind
Eleven hours behind
I'm seeing you in three
I'm hoping you can see
The better side of me

If only,if only

Beyond the fantasy
I'm hoping you can see
The better side of me
