  1. Better Things

From the recording Better Things

 
Tsera's gift is a collection of ten songs, out of hundreds, given to Eleanor by Tsera when Eleanor was just six years old.
Eleanor was to use these songs, throughout her life as she saw fit. She could sing them herself or give them to others to interpret.
Eleanor gave Connie ten songs to do with as she pleased.
Since Connie is a singer who loves nothing more than to work with great musicians, she chose
three of Australia's best jazz artists to help her give Eleanor's songs a unique and wonderful sound.
 
Eleanor would have given Better Things to Sleeping Beauty if she could.

You can pre-order Tsera's Gift at theperfecttear@gmail.com

Lyrics

Better Things
 
I can’t wait in vain for you.
I have better things to do.
I have to watch the garden grow,
Make angels in the virgin snow.
No, I can’t wait in vain for you ‘cause
I have better things to do.
 
You said goodbye, and please don’t cry,
That you would be back tomorrow.
I told a lie when I said I’d try to
Contain my pain and my sorrow.
I face the night, and I fear I might forever be alone.
I stare at the floor and believe I need more
Than the sun and the stars and the moon.
 
 
I can’t wait in vain for you.
I have better things to do.
I have to watch the garden grow,
Make angels in the virgin snow.
No, I can’t wait in vain for you ‘cause
I have better things to do.
 
I waited some, my feelings numb, as I let my life slip by,
But the midday sun, it made me come
To my senses and I cried.
I tied my love to a blood red balloon
And released it to the sky,
Then I could see the fool that was me
And the pain that makes me wise.
 
In the beauty of reality, I see that everything is me,
And I can never really be alone.
In the beauty of reality, I see that everything is me,
There will always be better things.
