Something Better - Audien ft. Lady Antebellum



The Experience: I never met you, but I know you're out there. If I cross the oceans, would you be there? I swear I'll find you... We're missing something that should be ours. Something we long for. Audien is searching for happiness in Something Better...


Music video: A young farmboy watches the stars from the back of his pickup. Although the driver's door logo says "Speed & Performance", he's going nowhere. Until he sees a meteor crash in the woods. He's closing in at the same time that government agents are. But he's the one who finds her. He picks her up. He respects her when he pushes the blanket back up over her shoulder - a gesture she mirrors right before disappearing into the sky. Lot's of people were hunting her down. But he's the only one who actually met her. The video ends with farmboy in his pickup, dreaming. But it's full daylight. Those hopes -whatever they are - aren't dreams anymore. They're reality.

The Meaning of Something Better: Audien and Lady Antebellum team up to offer a thought provoking anthem that resonates with everyone. Because Something Better is the happiness that none of us have found. No matter how good life gets, we always need more. It's not that we're selfish... just unsatisfied and still a little bit hollow. And that's why we cross oceans and climb walls, looking for the best thing. Somehow we know we'll recognize it, even if we don't know what it will look like - stranger's eyes that somehow look familiar - as if we had seen it before - I know that when it's you, I'll remember. But no matter what happens, we know happiness is out there. Waiting and wanting to be found. Because for Audien and Lady Antebellum, happiness isn't a something. It's a someone.

Ask yourself: Are you convinced that happiness is out there for you?

LYRICS:

I never met you, but I know you're out there
If I cross the oceans, would you be there?

A stranger's eyes that somehow look familiar
I know that when it's you, I'll remember
Remember

So wait for me; I swear I'll find you
Climbing every wall that hides you
I know we were meant for something better
So wait for me; the world is changing
Underneath, the ground is shaking
You and I were meant for something better
Better, oh

I swear I'll find you

I feel the wind move; we breathe the same air
You're like the best news that I can't share

A stranger's eyes that somehow look familiar (somehow look familiar)
I know that when it's you, I'll remember
Remember

So wait for me; I swear I'll find you
Climbing every wall that hides you
I know we were meant for something better
So wait for me; the world is changing
Underneath, the ground is shaking
You and I were meant for something better
Better, oh

Oh
So wait for me; the world is changing
Underneath, the ground is shaking
You and I were meant for something better
Better, oh

I swear I'll find you
Oh
Meant for something better
Better, oh
