Better

SG Lewis & Clairo

Better Lyrics

[Verse 1: Clairo]
I know there's something right
Right in between us
I see you standing there
Want you to just trust
You make it hard for me
So hard not to stare
I'm moving closer baby
Why don't you seem to care?

[Pre-Chorus 1: Clairo]
All my life, thinking about all these times
Wanted someone like you
Hold me tight, but treat me right
All my life, needing someone to get by
What if I had it right from the very first time?

[Chorus: Clairo]
I want it better
I want it better
I want it better
I want it better for you

[Verse 2: Clairo]
I know it isn't right
You creep into the night
Maybe you want a friend
Maybe not in this life

Why is it so hard, hard to please you
All I wanted was you in my room

[Pre-Chorus 2: Clairo]
All my life, thinking about other guys
Never hit me like this
Cut me deep like a knife
All my life, tried so hard to be alright
What have you done to me
Blinded, I lost my mind

[Chorus: Clairo]
I want it better
I want it better
I want it better
I want it better for you
I want it better
I want it better
I want it better
I want it better for you
I want it better
I want it better
I want it better
I want it better for you

About “Better”

“Better” marks the first collaboration between SG Lewis and Clairo. The song presents an iridescent, synth-bop appeal that is irresistibly catchy, which SG Lewis acknowledges as an ‘old disco feel’. Commenting on the song’s pop appeal, Clairo stated;

‘Better’ is one of the first real steps I’ve made into ‘pop music’ and this collab feels like a match made in heaven!

Moreover, the song’s music video pays homage to Hype William’s use of the fish lens in the late 90’s. This serves to conjure a nostalgic aesthetic similar to William’s music videos with artists like Biggie, Puffy, Mase and Missy Elliot during this era.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    Clairo in an interview with Clash:

    Sam is one of the most talented producers I know. We met the same day that we made this song, and just clicked instantly. “Better” is one of the first real steps I’ve made into ‘pop music’ and this collab feels like a match made in heaven!
