About Things Can Only Get Better

"Things Can Only Get Better" is a song by Northern Irish musical group D:Ream. The Labour Party notably used it as a theme during the party's successful campaign in the General Election 1997. The song took several months to reach the top of the UK Singles Chart. Originally a club hit, pop success took much longer for the song – initially, it reached only number 24 on the chart in January 1993. Band member Al Mackenzie left later that year, and remaining member Peter Cunnah took the band in a more pop friendly direction. "Things Can Only Get Better" was remixed and became a bigger hit, spending four weeks at number-one in January 1994. In addition, the song managed to reach the top 10 in 8 countries. In the US, it peaked at number 7 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart.

You can walk my path
You can wear my shoes
Learn to talk like me and be an angel too

But maybe you ain't never gonna feel this way
You ain't never gonna know me, but I know you
I'm singing it now

Things can only get better
Can only get better if we see it through
That means me and I mean you too
So teach me now that things can only get better
They can only get, they only get, take it on from here
You know I know that things can only get better

I, sometimes lose myself in me
I lose track of time
And I can't see the woods for the trees
You set them alight
Burn bridges as you go
I'm too weak to fight you
I've got my personal hell to deal with, then you say

Walk my path
Wear my shoes
Talk like that
I'll be an angel then
Things can only get better
They can only get better
Now I found you (and you and you)

You have shown me prejudice and greed
And you've shown me how I must learn to deal with this disease
I look at things now in a different light than I did before
And I've found the cause
And I think you can be my cure
So teach me to

Walk your path
Wear your shoes
Talk like that
I'll be an angel and things can only get better
Can only get better
Now I found you

Things can only get, can only get

Things can only get better, they can only get better
Now I found you
Things can only get, can only get

Things can only get better
Will only get better
They can only get better
Now I found you
So teach me to

Walk your path
Wear your shoes
Talk like that
I'll be an angel and things can only get better
They can only get better
Now I found you (and you and you)
Things can only get better
They can only get better
Now I found you
