Better Man

Better Man by Pearl Jam (which you can listen to here) speaks of a woman unable to leave her partner because she’s scared and because she can’t find or thinks she can’t find a better man than the one she’s with. She’s convincing herself of why she’s in love with him and why she’s staying with him.

Talkin’ to herself, there’s no one else who needs to know…
She tells herself, oh…
Memories back when she was bold and strong
And waiting for the world to come along…
Swears she knew it, now she swears he’s gone

She lies and says she’s in love with him, can’t find a better man…
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man…
She lies and says she still loves him, can’t find a better man…
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man…

She loved him, yeah… she don’t want to leave this way
She feeds him, yeah… that’s why she’ll be back again

Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better man
Can’t find a better… man…

I’ve had points in my life where I’ve wondered if there’s a better man out there for me. That’s the part I connected with the most in regards to the song – the wondering about the possibilities.

Of course I’m content and happy with the life I have now.
