Better Late Than Never

Demo #3 for the 50/90 Song Writing Challenge.

This was the first 50/90 track I started writing and it got off to a good start, but the lyrics were a bit of a tightrope. I wanted the chorus to be a play as a power anthem and make it clear in the verse that the character was abusive without being too overt. I chose my words carefully to just hint at whats really going on.

LYRICS

[VERSE]
You were the best thing
that ever happen to me.
my everything.
I was a fool for ever leaving

The time away got
Me realizing
What I should have seen
It was right before my eyes

I stand before you as a better sort of man
Who would never stand for the shit I put you through
I take the blame
I just got caught up in what
everyone was saying

[PRE)
I said I know I wasn’t fair
She said she doesn’t care
To hear sorries
Then she said

[CHORUS]
Better late than never
Is that all you have to say
I’m no consolation,
I’m not your second place. 
When I needed you
You felt the need to get away
So save the better late than never
I’m better off this way

[VERSE]
Won’t see me making
Mistakes like I made in the past
playing you
So I could get the upper hand

Better late then never
but now here I stand
Can you comprehend
How I’m not the guy I was before

I swear I changed into the one that you deserve
And If you have the nerve to to take a chance the new me
I’ll be the one you always said you knew that I could be

[PRE)
I said I know I wasn’t fair
She said she doesn’t care
To hear sorries
When she said

[CHORUS]
Better late than never
Is that all you have to say
I’m no consolation,
I’m not your second place. 
When I needed you
You felt the need to get away
So keep your better late than never
I’m better off this way

[SOLO]

[CHORUS]
Better late than never
Is that all you have to say
I’m no consolation,
I’m not your second place. 
When I needed you
You felt the need to get away
So save the better late than never
Cause I’ve never been better than today.
