Better Then Never

       A song about calling it quits.  It never actually uses the title in the lyrics.  A short time after they first met she said their relationship was better than ever --better than she ever imagined.  Well, this song was written about them a few months later.

       It is presented here with Band in a Box, Reaper, Cakewalk, and Ozone 10  I added bass and vocals.

Better Then Never


In the silence from the shouting aftermath a thought resurfaces to mind.

Something that you said when we first fell in love, but that was so far back in time.

Now the words become so jumbled and the meaning rearranged.

We seem to just go on as if there's nothing wrong,

but the words have somehow changed.


Better than ever turned better been never, We never had a chance from the start.

Some people say it's still better than never. It depends on who you are.


When the meaning changed and things were not the same

our love was somehow turned around.

Everything we try seems another way to prove we lost the love we found.

We should hear our song is changing, and rewrite it to a fade.

We tried our best and failed. Our love boat simply sailed. Our course is clearly laid.


Better than ever turned better been never, We never should've lasted this long.

Some people say it's still better than never. I'll bet all those people are wrong.


When I'm honest in the quiet of night, I tell myself that we're done.

I wake up every day wonderin' how I'm gonna say I don't think I'm your one.


You remember how you told me once you'll know

when we should go our separate ways?

Well, what that seems to say is you didn't expect to grow

to bloom with me in our old age.

Well, the time is now upon us to begin our new life phase.

Maybe it's the end, but we could still be friends. Let's go out in a blaze.


Better than ever turned better been never, We both know we've reached the end.

Some people say it's still better than never. So maybe we'll be better friends.
