ODESZA Lyrics “Better Now”

(feat. MARO)

I’ve been trying to find it
Been living on my mind yeah
What should I leave behind me

Looking for something
Don’t wanna live for nothing
I could settle right now or I could jump somehow

One route, like there is no way out
They never teach you to reach the stars
No doubt, I’m feeling better now
Gave it a try, now enjoying the ride

So what if I fall?
Better that I try instead of nothing at all
Yeah I can say it’s my fault
I really don’t mind, at least I gave it a go

So what if I fall?
Better that I try instead of nothing at all
Yeah I can say it’s my fault
I really don’t mind, at least I gave it a go

I’ve been trying to fix it
And find out what’s been missing
I want to live a life that is worth living

One route, like there is no way out
They never teach you to reach the stars
No doubt, I’m feeling better now
Gave it a try, now enjoying the ride

So what if I fall?
Better that I try instead of nothing at all
Yeah I can say it’s my fault
I really don’t mind, at least I gave it a go

So what if I fall?
Better that I try instead of nothing at all
Yeah I can say it’s my fault
I really don’t mind, at least I gave it a go

At least I gave it a go
I gave it a go

I know it gets better and better
(Keeps getting better)
I don’t think it’s all ’bout the weather

So what if I fall?
Better that I try instead of nothing at all
Yeah I can say it’s my fault
I really don’t mind, at least I gave it a go

So what if I fall?
Better that I try instead of nothing at all
Yeah I can say it’s my fault
I really don’t mind, at least I gave it a go

So what if I fall?
Better that I try instead of nothing at all
Yeah I can say it’s my fault
I really don’t mind, at least I gave it a go
(I gave it a go)

So what if I fall?
Better that I try instead of nothing at all (I try)
Yeah I can say it’s my fault
I really don’t mind, at least I gave it a go
I gave it a go
I gave it a go

“Better Now” is the second single from ODESZA’s fourth studio album. The song was premiered without an announcement on March 2, 2022. This is the first time ODESZA and MARO collaborated on a song. The duo said about their combined effort, “It’s funny because we tried so many different collaborations with vocalists in varying genres to try to find the right fit for this song when we first made it, but for whatever reason, nothing felt right. We’ve been big fans of MARO’s and when we sent her a short handful of demos, this was the one she resonated with, and we knew she was going to do something really special with it.”
