A Better Life
Lyrics

She’s living modestly
On the outside looking in
At where she wants to be
Away from the rain and wind

She’s just as good or better
But they act like she’s not there
And they won’t accept her
'Cuz she's no millionaire

And she might wake up cryin’
‘Cuz she knows the rules are wrong
It may be an uphill fight
But she knows that she is strong

And there’s a better life that’s callin’ her name
They’re chasin’ rainbows
Runnin’ through the rain
She wants the sunny days where she won’t feel the pain
She’d give anything to make the change

She’s up before the sun
To build her dreams and power
She’ll show everyone
Up in their ivory tower

She gonna write a letter
To tell the world that she is here
And they won’t forget her
Like she won’t forget her tears

Now the door, it opens wide
To new friends up on high
But though they take her in,
Their smiles are all a lie

And there’s that better life that’s callin’ out her name
She’s chasin’ rainbows, laughin’ in the rain
There’s the sunny days where she don’t feel the pain
And she gave everything to make that change

She’s got it all, she’s in the light, she feels the high
Of having everything her money could ever buy
She’s swimmin’ in her fortune an’ in her fame
But somewhere back home, they call her name

With every stranger’s smile
She feels her lonely corazon
With all the buzz and style
She just wants to be back home

She’s in a jail of gold now
With nothing real to show
An’ nothin’ real to hold now
There’s just one place to go

‘Cuz everything she needs
She's had it all along
Her home and family
The love that made her strong

Where there’s a better life that’s callin’ to her by name
She’s chasin’ rainbows, laughin’ in the rain
She has the sunny days an’ she won’t feel the pain
She’ll give anything to see that it don’t change

She likes that better life that’s callin’ to her by name
She’s catchin’ rainbows, runnin’ through the rain
She has the sunny days an’ she won’t feel the pain
She’ll give anything to see that it don’t change
