I used to think that it all stopped happenin'
By the time you reached twenty one
They said, theres nothing like the first love you get, boy
They were wrong, oh so wrong
They hung on and hung on to their dream, I know

Ooh, life gets better, yeah, when ever Im in her arms
Just to know Im not the average fella
Im the one, Im the one for her

Well, its a shame what they do to these young kids
Just encourage them to act like clowns
And then they think that they dont have much longer
Knocked up the first time she let 'em get down
Put four walls around and then scream but I know

Ooh, life gets better, yeah, when ever Im in her arms
Just to know Im not the average fella
Im the one, Im the one for her

Life stretches before me, an endless mystery
And nothing can bore me when shes with me
I feel the heartbeat of the world in the hands of this girl
But it takes so much time to, to finally see, see, see

I get a thrill when I think how it really is
No one can ever take that away
They try to put rubber bands around your heart
But theyre wrong, oh, so wrong
They hung on and hung on to their dream but I know

Ooh, life gets better, yeah, when ever Im in her arms
Just to know Im not the ordinary fella
Im the one, Im the one for her

Ooh, life gets better, yeah, when ever Im in her arms
Just to know Im not the average sucker
Im the one, Im the one for her

Ooh, life gets better, yeah
Ooh, life gets better, yeah
Ooh, life gets better, yeah
