Better Than This Lyrics

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

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
