Lyrics for Better by ZAYN:

Verse 1
Hope I only leave good vibes on your living room floor
It hurts so bad that I didn't when you asked for more
Your dad probably loves me more than he ever did now
'Cause I finally got up
Yeah, we're finally knocked down

Pre-Chorus 1
Yeah, sometimes it's better that way
Gotta let it go so your heart don't break
'Cause I love you
Yeah, baby, I love you
Just this one time hear what I'm tryna say
Know you might not feel quite the same way
But I love you
I tell you, I love you

Chorus
Why? Why wait to fight?
Give it a try
Or I'll say goodbye while it's right
Can we save tears in your eyes?
I'm making you cry
Why wait to hate, can we save love?

Verse 2
I fell in, I'm falling, I'm for you
I can't let you fall through the floor too
It's a gamble to take any more of you
(It's a gamble to take-take more you)
Still in my mind sometimes, I must admit it
Like it's a crime on trial, I got acquitted
Me and you wasn't meant, we wasn't fitted
Like it's a glove, I hated to admit it

Pre-Chorus 2
'Cause obviously we go back
So why would we ruin that?
In too deep, we're rearranged
Now you wanna ask for names
We can't let this fruit go bad
Sayin' things we can't take back
In too deep, we're rearranged
Say you feel the same

Chorus
Why? Why wait to fight?
Give it a try
Or I'll say goodbye while it's right
Can we save tears in your eyes?
I'm watching you cry
Why wait to hate, can we save love?

Song Facts

ZAYN returns to the music scene with “Better,” his first release of 2020 and the lead single from his upcoming third studio album. Although he has done a few collaborations in 2019, it marks his first major release since his sophomore studio album, Icarus Falls, which was released in December 2018.

This song hints at his lover and model, Gigi Hadid, talking about giving second chances and finding a way back to love. It’s worth noting that she gave birth to their first child, a daughter, just a few days before its release. The chorus of it interpolates Kasey Cisyk’s 1997 song “You Light Up My Life.”

This song was initially found through a song repertoire two days before its release, on September 23, 2020. A few hours later, the singer confirmed its existence by posting video teases on social media, along with a link to the official music video, which was premiered.
