Edited 25/04/2017 - Lyrics are now as they appear in the CD booklet.

Make Me Better

You made me breakfast every morning.
You made me sleep all through the night.
You made me worry without any warning.
Let me just lie here and drown in your eyes, dear.

You make me sorry this wasn't always.
You make me hungry for your body, babe.
You make me run down hospital hallways.
You gave me life, dear, and he's got your eyes.

I waited so long, baby, I did you wrong,
Let's make up for the time we've wasted.
You would wait by the phone every time I was gone,
But all along…

You are everything I have never been.
I want you to make me better.
And I've been wondering why you let me in.
I want you to make me better.

You make me stop and savour the moment.
You make me laugh out loud, you do.
You give memories like time is frozen.
You gave me a child and he's got your smile.

And I sang a song every night I was gone,
About all the dreams I'm chasing.
And I have been wrong with the things that I've done,
'Cause all along…

You are everything I have never been.
I want you to make me better.
And I've been wondering why you let me in.
I want you to make me better.

Although that I've never read your mind,
I've figured it out on my own.
I am so glad that I've caught you in time,
Before I am left all alone (alone).

You are everything I have never been.
I want you to make me better.
So please, my darling, take this wedding ring.
I want you to make me better.
And I've been wondering why you ever let me in.
I want you to make me better.
I want you to make me better.
I want you to make me better.

This is a gorgeous song and James performed it beautifully. How can he be nervous that we might not like this album with songs like this???!! So far he is 2 out of 3! LMB is okay but Time of Our Lives and Make Me Better are wonderful in my opinion. Keep them coming, James!! They keep getting better.


And Secret of the Universe you need to buzz the hell off!!! Nobody wants to hear your crap and nobody has time to read all that nonsense you're posting. You're a bitter troll. Find something else to do.

Ed Sheeran's influence is clear on this song - not just in the structure, but in the openness and honesty of the lyrics. This is a soul-baring song that comes from the same place as some of those heartbreakers from years ago (Goodbye My Lover comes to mind) - even though it's from the opposite end of the emotional spectrum. James was very wise to collaborate with Ed, I think both of their music will benefit.

A brilliant song, no wonder it keeps getting mentioned in the reviews. Fun to watch James singing it with Ed on the Facebook German interview.

I love the sentiments in this song, it is so sweet and tender. But, again, I miss James' writing style, his linguistic fluidity.

Most men love their wives and are happy to have their children, not sure if its a topic to sing about? I can't relate to it. I can relate to wanting someone I can't have lol.

See for me this is like returning to the raw honest but beautifully worded music from GBML the differance is, in the world now where nothing is private we all know the actual story not it's just about someone but no one is sure who. It's that real honesty that makes the connection for me, my first hearing of MMB I was almost uncomfortable because it was so personalit was like listening in on a private conversation, then I thought about GBML and that has always felt like it was written from an honest and deeply personal place. I've loved fun songs like STN but they are just great tunes and fun lyrics but lack that deep connection. It must be so hard to share such personal private relationships with the music buying public I know wouldn't be brave enough to do that.

I think it's a really beautiful love song . If only my partner could be so romantic ! I can relate to it though I like to imagine him saying the lyrics as we do have a son and we are getting married soon.
I must admit the lines of you are everything I am not did strike a chord with me as when he first got together with Sophia I was a bit surprised as I didn't envisage him with someone like her . I would love to know what James personality is on the Myers Briggs ? Anyone know ?

For me, this song isn't about loving your wife or children. It's about finding someone that has beautiful qualities that you don't have, and being so inspired by them and wanting them to make you a better person. I think it's a very lovely song.

Oh and I forgot to add that when I first heard this song I thought he said...you make me breathless every morning. I was like..oooh, he's getting personal now. And maybe even a bit too much information.

But then I heard it again and I realized he was saying breakfast. Which is a lot more boring than breathless but still not a bad deal. I hope you make her breakfast sometimes too, James! It goes both ways and that would be a way to make yourself better.

Agreed Bella. For me also, commenting on MMB, feels like an intrusion into a very private conversation.
At the same time, that believability/honesty is where the magic is for me.

I like his other songs that reflect lighter moments in life too. It's good for an album over all.

@ hooked, how's this for a different spin ..

You made me breathless every morning
You made me sleepless all through the night
You made me hor*y without any warning
Let me just lie here, drown in your eyes, dear

I felt also uncomfortable when I listened to this song. In GBML he sings about an unknown person, so it is different to this new one.
I am a bit astonished about this sudden directness especially due to the usual protection of his privacy and his taciturnity concerning his partnership.
Maybe his wife feels good to hear his declaration of love spread across the world.

I think it would have been much more interesting to write lyrics not in the first-person and to use a more cryptic way without too drippy words.

Sorry, I don't like this song. But for that I Iove "Bartender". And if the still unpublished songs won’t meet my taste, there are 4 other good albums and especially The Masterpiece “Moonlanding” with lots of brilliant songs written in his usual distinctive ingenious way."
