The Decemberists – Make You Better Lyrics

I want you, thin fingers
I wanted you, thin fingernails1
And when you bend backwards
I wanted you, I needed you
Oh-oh, to make me better2

I’ll love you in springtime
I lost you when summer came3
And when you pulled backwards
I wanted to, I needed to
Oh-oh, to make me better4
Oh-oh, to make me better

But we’re not so starry-eyed5 anymore
Like the perfect paramour you were in your letters
And won’t it all just come around to make you6
Let it all unbreak you to the day you met her
But it’d make you better
It’d make you better

I sung you your twinges
I suffered you your tattletales7
And when you broke sideways
I wanted you, I needed you
Oh-oh, to make me better8
Oh-oh, to make me better

But we’re not so starry-eyed anymore
Like the perfect paramour you were in your letters
And won’t it all just come around and make you
Let it all unbreak you to the day that you met her
And it’d make you better
Did it make you better?

And all I wanted was a sliver to call mine
And all I wanted was a shimmer in your shine
To make me bright9

Cause we’re not so starry-eyed anymore
Like the perfect paramour you were in your letters
And won’t it all just come around and make you
Let it all unbreak you to the day you met her
But it’d make you better
It’d make you better10
