FLETCHER - Doing Better Lyrics

 

FLETCHER - Doing Better Lyrics


Your girlfriend never thanked me

For being such a pyro

Lighting matches with my eyes closed

Kerosene in your mouth

Drove you so far away

It's like I went and dropped you off at her house


I know you kept my number

In case you wonder

Like where is she now?

You say you wanna check in

You're only checking

On how I turned out


I'm doing better, I don't know if you remember

When I told you in September

That you wouldn't recognize me

When I'm in public

And I just got back from London

Probably spent a couple hundred on some bougie fucking IV's

I went and saw a psychic

Went on The Pussy Diet

I always thought that if I'd be happier if I could buy it

I'm doing better, I've been looking for my center

But my tummy still hurts

Why does better feel worse? Ooh


Better feels worse, ooh

Better feels worse


Your girlfriend never thanked me

For making her go viral

Fuck it, I'm her idol

I get sad and spiral

Yeah, I'll buy a new whip

But you'll never see me take the high road


I know you kept my number

In case you wonder

Like where is she now?

You say you wanna check in

You're only checking

On how I turned out


I'm doing better, I don't know if you remember

When I told you in December

That you wouldn't recognize me

After the glow up, I was learning how to grow up

Had a wet dream, then I woke up

I was on a stage with Miley

I felt like I was flying

I felt the stars aligning

I always thought that if I ever got this high, I'd like it

I'm doing better, I've been looking for my center

But my tummy still hurts

Why does better feel worse? Ooh


Then why does better feel worse? Oh, oh

Ooh, ooh, oh

Better feels worse


Smiling on the outside, crying on the inside

You would never know, 'cause I'm posing with my good side

Smiling on the outside, dying on the inside


Smiling on the outside, dying on the inside

You would never know, I'm posing with my good side

I'm doing better, I've been looking for my center

But my tummy still hurts

Why does better feel worse?

Oh
