Kytiera?
My friend has been going through this For 7years
@tammy72 he's actually talking about his mom in this song cause his stepfather was an a** to his mom, and she never thought she was good enough for a better man and one that would treat her right. Great song nonetheless
Nice song
This was my favorite song until I realized I am better on my own.
Pearl jam rules \m/ <3
Great song. I loved Pearl Jam back in high school and still love them. In my top 3 favourite bands <3
Brilliant song by a brilliant band.
Yea. Old school
Hey! This is about my mom!....... Crap. Now I'm sad.

The better man... the only man forever
Great song everybody
I know this is very sad!!!♥♥♥♥.. . . Y o u don't know what I tell myself though 2 make the outside world only see the smile on my face.....P.S . I love someone who is forbidden!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Some of you guys have the wrong understandin g of this song.... This is a very unhappy song. It's not about having a great man it's about a woman who is lying to herself about her man who's actually abusive/mean
Favorite Pearl Jam song :)
Can't find a better man!!!♥♥♥♥
Only reason I started listening to this song- the crazy girl who never looked me in the eye...

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
I love these guys but always affectionate l y sing---CAN'T FIND THE BUTTER MAN ;-)
Great song since my high school.... Your still the 1 band ... Keep it going til I die...:D
