Is this what you meant?
Is this what you dreamed of?
When you were making your plans
Shaking the dirt off?

Do you feel like
You and I belong? (Oh woah oh!)
Just keep your eyes on the road
And nothing can go wrong

You can do so much better than this
You can do so much better than this

I've been checking my sums
Oh where did the time go?
Holding my photograph
Up to the window

Through the paper
And refracted sun (Oh woah oh!)
I can see all the things
I wish that I'd done


You can hang your hopes on the medicine
You can put your faith in the phone in
You can tell yourself you're doing your best
You can do so much better than this


Get a grip on yourself
Get a grip on yourself
Could've been something, but you're too late
And you weren't invited anyway


Cos the photograph showed the wrong man
Cos there is no soap star holding your hand
You don't see yourself in the freeze frame
Must be someone else using your name

And everyone will be the same
And everyone will gloat
And everywhere you'll see your name
In every shop window

It's better than this
You can do so much better than this
You can do so much better than this
You can do so much better than this
