ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: THE STORY BEHIND THE MUSIC
Artist: Suzi Kory
Song: A Better Man

This week, Suzi Kory shares the inspiration behind her song A Better Man — a lockdown-triggered self-reflection on the touring lifestyle, and the sometimes unhealthy situations it puts musicians and music industry workers in.

A Better Man is a beautiful song about hope, empowerment, and one’s ability to change, and you can listen to it here now or on Soundcloud.

A BETTER MAN

Mama never raised her son
To be a wandering cowboy
But a dream and a fire
Can sometimes steal you away
Buses and bars
Girls and guitars
Takin’ this life just a little too far
The road back home
So many miles away
So you crash and you burn
Then you start to learn
There were signs on the road
At every wrong turn
Angels that you couldn’t see
Watching over you with another plan
And every high, every low
That you had to go through
Making you the kinda man
Your mama always knew
A heart full of love inside of you
Helping you to understand
How to be a better man
Wreckage and debris
When the dust storm settles on the highway Well there’s something you can feel
And the feeling starts to grow
Let go of regret
Forgive and forget
Searching for the saviour
He’s inside yourself
Realizing now you’ll be reaping
What you sow
So you crash and you burn
Then you start to learn
There were signs on the road
At every wrong turn
Angels that you couldn’t see
Watching over you with another plan
And every high, every low
That you had to go through
