Kevin Reeder / Mary Gauthier

There’s a stranger inside me
He don’t have a name
He does things that scare me
And I’m the one I blame
He’s backed into a corner, that’s where he’ll always be
Sometimes the worst gets the better of me

I believe in constant motion
Like a bullet from a gun
It don’t matter where I’m going
Leaving gets it done
I just end up where I started, every night in my dreams
Sometimes the worst gets the better of me

When I got back from the war
I paid a hundred fifty bucks
I wanted the documents, yes, I tried to look you up
They sent me a letter, the one I knew I would receive
Sometimes the worst gets the better of me
It’s only sometimes the worst gets the better of me
