Better Half is the single of Abbie Morin's upcoming debut album "Shadowproof" set to release January 7th.


I once lost grips to my darker side-
had a criminal reputation.
I was a distant hand with a brilliant plan
and every explanation.

Lived too rough just to toughen my hide,
couldn’t touch me with your bare skin.
I was a hot coal burning through my own soul
with too much imagination.

If I have to go I wont go
until I leave you
with my better half.
If I have to go I wont go
until you seep into my pores.
If you have to go
I hope you leave me
for the lights of New York City.
If you have to go
I hope you’ll stay
until the morning comes.

Scooped me up from the wreckage pile-
I was crawling on my knees.
I was an outcast,
couldn’t run fast enough
from my own obscenities.
Took me up to the rooftop
baby, you held me in your gaze.
I was just a crooked girl
in a strange new world
of copper-colored days.


Once took a ride on a salty night,
I was reeling for a revelation.
It was the thick of June
and I reached for you
without a blink of hesitation.

Well I let you drive
and the passenger side
was so warm, and you were ready.
Crippled by my growing pains,
let you clip my chains-
hold me close ‘til I was steady.


I don’t want to go.
I don't want to go.
I don't want to go.
