Better Man
by Clint Black



What do you say when it's over
Don't know if I should say anything at all
One day we're rolling in the clovers
Next thing you know we take the fall

Still I think about the year since I first met you
and the way it might've been without you here
I don't know if words from me can still upset you
But, I just gotta make this memory stand clear

I know I'm leavin' here a better man
for knowing you this way
Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can
and I'm leaving here a better man

I guess I always knew I couldn't hold you
but I'd never be the one to set you free
Just like some 'ole nursery rhyme your mama told you
you still believe in someone meant to be

Still, I'm leaving here a better man
Knowing you this way
Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can
and I'm leaving here a better man

Yes, I'm leaving here a better man
Knowing you this way
Things I couldn't do before, now I know I can
and I'm leaving here a better man

Yes, I'm leaving here a better man
