I wrote this song with Mario and Gino in Hollywood once free from a bad partnership. I had overcome the challenges from the previous year and really was excited about being back in the studio.


Better Than Yesterday
Zuri Star, Mario Marchetti, Gino Barletta

Where am I?

What am I?

Lying here waiting for

I'm slipping up

Sipping up

Drowning on the floor

Wonder which way is right

Either way I know I gotta be

Strong enough to fight

I wanna get back

Get back what was mine

Cause If I stay you’re playing the game and rolling the dice

And if I should wait I’m waiting in vain and paying the price

I’m ending it all tonight

I made up my mind and I’m gonna break away

Was lost in a lie but I can’t erase mistakes

So I burn the bridge that we were under

Feel the rain and I hear the thunder calling

Washing it all away and I’m better than yesterday

Pretty eyes

Pretty lies

Paint me black and blue

Whenever I realized

I was bruised from you

I need a fix, need a remedy,

I don’t really wanna be hanging on a prayer

But I can bet you

You won’t get me there

I’ve got something to say, that you don’t own my fate

You let me lie when I said I’m ok

I took a bullet or two

But now I’m living to die by life and not by you
