Better Man - Robbie Williams

by Wayne
(Australia)

My younger brother hung himself in prison in 2001, he had been hounded for many years by the police here, though he was not always innocent, the charge they had him in prison for was attempted murder when every witness statement said it was clearly self defense. He defended his girlfriend of the time when another man threw her into a fence. At the time of his death, he continually stated that he wanted to get rid of the friends who always seemed to backstab him and who always tried to pull him into criminal endeavors....so he wanted to be a better man. I only heard this song for the first time when I was flying from my Army Training to attend his funeral. Seemed to fit....



Lyrics
Send someone to love me
I need to rest in arms
Keep me safe from harm
In pouring rain

Give me endless summer
Lord I fear the cold
Feel I'm getting old
Before my time

As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord I'm doing all I can
To be a better man

Go easy on my conscience
'Cause it's not my fault
I know I've been taught
To take the blame

Rest assured my angels
Will catch my tears
Walk me out of here
I'm in pain

As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord I'm doing all I can
To be a better man

Once you've found that lover
You're homeward bound
Love is all around
Love is all around

I know some have fallen
On stony ground
But Love is all around

Send someone to love me
I need to rest in arms
Keep me safe from harm
In pouring rain

Give me endless summer
Lord I fear the cold
Feel I'm getting old
Before my time

As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord I'm doin' all I can
To be a better man
