Better Things Than These

This song is by Faron Young and appears on the album Sweethearts Or Strangers (1957).

You thought you'd set the world on fire
That life was just a song
You thought if you'd try hard enough
Things couldn't turn out wrong.

How feeble is the string of those
Whose heartaches never ease
But there'll may be a chance for me
For better things than these.

So many battles fought and lost
You've heard of constantly
For someone left to pay the cost
And this time it's mean.

But there's one thing I'm hopin' for
Someday the pain will leave
Tomorrow may rebuild to me
Much better things than these.

You've learned to love somebody new
It seems that I can't bear
To see you in another's arms
And know you're happy there.

My heart is broken still I try
A jealous heart to please
It's hard to smile but God may show me
The better things than these...
