Better Man

“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.” That’s a quote by the infamous Osho Rajneesh, and can’t agree more with it. Indeed, a life needs its balance in order to continue living; The Remembered and The Forgotten, a balance of the past to move towards the future.

As my soul heals the shame, I will grow through this pain. Lord, I’m doing all I can to be a better man.” –Robbie Williams, Better Man

British infamous singer, Robbie Williams, has a great song about contemplation. The song is titled “Better Man”. It was released as a single on October 22nd 2001, and served as the last single from his third studio album, “Sing When You’re Winning”.
“Better Man” is a song about someone who reflects on the past in order to make a better future, ans asks God to help. “Send someone to love me, I need to rest in arms keep me safe from harm in pouring rain. Give me endless summer, Lord I fear the cold, feel I’m getting old before my time.” Time flies and loneliness remains, as we’re getting older and our hearts become colder. And all we need is a consolation, to look at every little things with a positive mind. “Go easy on my conscience, ‘cause it’s not my fault. I know I’ve been taught to take the blame. Rest assured, my angels will catch my tears. Walk me out of here, I’m in pain.” Pain is there to make people grow. Past is there to make people learn. Sadness is there to make people appreciate happiness. That’s the balancing we take to be a better man each days. In love, we may hit the rock bottom, once or twice or even more, yet we will find the one, someday and somehow.
The soft rock song was a big success, though the single was only released in Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America. “Better Man” became one of Robbie Williams’ signature songs, along with “Feel” and “Eternity”. Indeed, it’s a classic masterpiece.

Once you’ve found that lover you’re homeward bound, love is all around. I know some have fallen on stony ground, but love is all around.” –Robbie Williams, Better Man


“Send someone to love me, I need to rest in arms keep me safe from harm in pouring rain
Give me endless summer, Lord I fear the cold, feel I’m getting old before my time

As my soul heals the shame, I will grow through this pain
Lord, I’m doing all I can to be a better man

Go easy on my conscience ‘cause it’s not my fault, I know I’ve been taught to take the blame
Rest assured, my angels will catch my tears, walk me out of here, I’m in pain

Once you’ve found that lover you’re homeward bound, love is all around, love is all around
I know some have fallen on stony ground, but love is all around”
