How to understand this lyrics? Can somebody tell me what is the feeling that the author tries to express by this song? Thanks a lot. Better man - Robbin Willims Send someone to love me I need to rest in arms Keep me safe from harm In pouring rain Give me endless summer Lord I fear the cold Feel I'm getting old Before my time As my soul heals the shame I will grow through this pain Lord I'm doing all I can To be a better man Go easy on my conscience 'Cause it's not my fault I know I've been taught To take the blame Rest assured my angels Will catch my tears Walk me out of here I'm in pain As my soul heals the shame I will grow through this pain Lord I'm doing all I can To be a better man Once you've found that lover You're homeward bound Love is all around Love is all around I know some have fallen On stony ground But Love is all around Send someone to love me I need to rest in arms Keep me safe from harm In pouring rain Give me endless summer Lord I fear the cold Feel I'm getting old Before my time As my soul heals the shame I will grow through this pain Lord I'm doing all I can To be a better man

Send someone to love me/I need to rest in arms" - he wants to feel the 'love of a good woman' as such, instead of flitting from one womans bed to the next. "keep me safe from harm/In pouring rain" - he wants to feel looked after, safe from his addictions maybe? his life is the pouring rain "Give me endless summer/lord I feel the cold/feel I'm getting old/before my time" - summer's a good time, (sexual reference maybe?). he knows addiction's taking it's toll. "As my soul heals the shame/I will grow through this pain/Lord I'm doing all I can/to be a better man" - he genuinelly wants to get better. "Go easy on my conscience/Cos it's not my fault/I know I've been told/to take the blame" - he blames what he went through and his rise to fame & fortune (possibly with take that though more likely the fame) for how he is. "Rest assured my angels/Will catch my tears/walk me out of here/I'm in pain" - angels = fans possibly? walking out of take that? "Once you found that lover/you're homeward bound/Love is all around/Love is all around" - everything fits in place when you're in love "I know some have fallen on stony ground/But love is all around" - don't give up
