Dearly departed, know me
Seen me from the other side, so free
In the back of my mind, made me
Wanna be a better man

I wonder what you see in me, only
You're 23 to be, lonley
Livin' out your memory, makes me
Wanna be a better man

[Chorus]
Yeah, someday in my future
In places I ain't never been
Places I ain't never been
Yeah, it'll take some gettin' used to

Dearly forever skies, show me
How to live a better life, hold me
A peasant in the storyline, makes me
Wanna be a better man

I wonder what I should've seen, boldly
Livin' after you're released, coldly
There's a story to tell, yeah I know you were
You made me into a man

[Chorus]

I take a look at (?), watchin' what I say
I'm lockin' up my plans, and auctions for my days
I got to be the man, I want to be the way
I ought to be is how, you want me to behave
So hey, I put my pants on, one leg at a time
In the back of my mind, you're watchin' me from behind
The moment I take a step, a step across the line
Nothing we're gonna talk, I'm just waitin' for the time

Dearly departed, know me
Seen me from the other side, so free
In the back of my mind, made me
Wanna be a better man

I wonder what you see in me, only
You're 23 to be, lonley
Livin' out your memory, makes me
Wanna be a better man

[Chorus]

Being there, in places I ain't never been
Places I ain't never been
But I'll be with you
I'll be with you, babe
