It Gets Better

IT GETS BETTER

Woke up one day in 1993
Finally prepared to be the person I was born to be
With friends all around me
There was no need for fear
I felt their love and support
The right choice was made, it’s clear

It gets better
It gets better
As we struggle
Just to cope
It gets better
It gets better
Where there’s love
There is hope


Fear has a way of blocking clarity
But we can’t let it change the life of you or me
Help is all around you
Just reach out a hand
Grasp it tight; it’ll pull you up
You’ll have the strength to stand

It gets better
It gets better
As we struggle
Just to cope
It gets better
It gets better
Where there’s love
There is hope


Parents listen to me and open up your heart
Accept your son, your daughter that’s the place to start
Pay attention; ask them questions
Don’t let them live in fear
Make the right choice; love’s the right choice
Suicide means they disappear.

It gets better
It gets better
As we struggle
Just to cope
It gets better
It gets better
Where there’s love
There is hope


We’re the teacher in your classroom
The teen just down the street
The girl who lives above you
Anyone who you might meet
Pay attention to the stories of the youth in the world today
Death seems their only answer, their only chance to get away
I’m glad that people loved me so much in my time of need
I hope to be an example that helps another to succeed.

It gets better
It gets better
As we struggle
Just to cope
It gets better
It gets better
Where there’s love
There is hope
