Better Place - The Shires

Broken and hopeless barely getting by
That's who I told myself I was that night
Then an angel in blue jeans pulled up a seat next to mine
Ordered my drink tequila no lime

How'd we get from "how are you?"
To kissing in a corner booth
To my love and my best friend
To being who you say I am

Let me stay with you
Stay with you all of my days
And I'll be leaving this world
In a better place
I just wanna lay with you
Lay with you that's all it takes
And I'll be leaving this world
In a better place, a better place

Got so used to lonely had to drag myself out
Told all my friends I'll only last an hour
I saw a halo above you in the neon light
That empty chair beside you had to be a sign

How'd we get from "how are you?"
To kissing in a corner booth
To I never want this night to end
To putting this ring on my hand

Let me stay with you
Stay with you all of my days
And I'll be leaving this world
In a better place
I just wanna lay with you
Lay with you that's all it takes
And I'll be leaving this world
In a better place, a better place

Let me stay with you
Stay with you all of my days
And I'll be leaving this world
In a better place, a better place
