Better Than Drugs Lyrics

Feel your every heartbeat
Feel you on these empty nights
Calm the ache, stop the shakes
You clear my mind
You're my escape
From this messed up place
'Cause you let me forget
You numb my pain

How can I tell you just all that you...

    What I think?
    I know that the meaning of the song is that God IS BETTER THAN DRUGS. This is what drugs do:
    Make you MORE depressed, even though you may think you’re happy.
    This is what God does:
    Makes you happy, calm on the inside, and gives you - I’m not taking this from Kung Fu Panda 2 - inner peace. I don’t know how to describe it but I know that God gives you inner peace. He IS BETTER THAN DRUGS AND CAN DO WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY MORE THAN DRUGS CAN DO. Pardon my capital letters, but STOP TAKING DRUGS IF YOU ARE AND WANNA QUIT BECAUSE YOU CAN STOP YOU JUST HAVE TO ASK FOR HELP - from both someone you trust AND from God. The person can encourage you to stop, while God actually literally helps you stop if you pray. One li’l tip, tho: please don’t expect Pickett-split results. You have to have patience. Seriously. I haven’t taken drugs, nor do I plan to, 1. Bc I’m too young, and 2. I know it can seriously harm you. So can smoking and drinking alcohol. So,
    1. Tell someone about your problem
    2. Pray to God and ask him to help you stop
    3. Be patient
    4. Continue to pray and try your hardest to stop your problem
    5. Well, keep being patient.

    Then you’ll definitely see results. I hope...

    Good luck stopping - if you have some kind of problem. If you don’t, then I’m at least glad you read this in case someone you know has a problem. :)

    John cooper is saying in this song God is better than drugs because he leads you away from them.

    Yes, I do believe that they mean that god is better than drugs. Knowing that they are a Christian band, that's mostly likely it, as all the other entrees suggest. But I'm guessing g that also, it can be about a person. It could be how they gave up on an addiction for them. Or just comparing them to the feeling. When I first heard the song. I thought it was about a person. And had one person In mind. I guess it's how you interpret the song. :)

    I think it's about someone realising that God is better than drugs. That nothing can top the feeling knowing him gives you
