Gonna Get Better is a song by Fifth Harmony included in their second studio album, 7/27, which debuted on May 27, 2016.

BackgroundEdit

Ally Brooke wrote what this song meant to her: "When I first heard ‘Gonna Get Better’, there was this insane magical connection. I thought it was beautiful. I did not write it, but it felt like I did. I was going through something that day, and this song perfectly fit my emotion. So, I went to the booth, laid down these words from my heart and sang from my soul. You can say it has a special meaning for me. I'll never forget it. -Ally"

Critical ResponseEdit

"If the Pussycat Dolls were still releasing stellar mid-tempo hip-pop anthems in 2016, this would be it. "I won't leave you for a money man," they assure their bae on the chorus, adding that they "don't need a house in the hills". It's a nice change of pace at this point in the record, without losing any of the momentum.", according to Lewis Corner of Digitalspy.

"Ally’s voice just makes us feel some type of way so we’re digging her introduction to the track — which is kicked into high gear with Camila’s sultry vocals. Her solo gives us Reggae feels and we love how all of their solos have been pieced together to round out the tune. We love the honesty of the song that tells the true feelings of being in a relationship facing a rough patch that can be worked towards because, well, it’s gonna get better.", according to Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues of ANDPOP.

LyricsEdit

Ally:
I'm not gonna leave you now
Oh, I know it's gon' get better
I'm not gonna leave you now
Oh, I know it's gon' get better

I won't leave you for a money man
No matter what we go through
I'm not gonna leave you now
Oh, I know it's gon' get better

Camila:
I don't know why you always think that I
Always think I'm unsatisfied
That I'm tempted by kings with the finest of things
But you know that ain't got no truth

I don't know why you always think that I'm
Unhappy with our paradise
That I'm wanting the trees that are growing the green
But you know all that I want is you

Lauren (with Normani):
I thought you know me better, bae
Then to think that I would do you that way
(I don't need a house in the hills and I)
I don't need man like Midas

I thought you knew me better, babe
Then to think that I would do you that way
(I don't need a house and a Benz, I just)
I just want your love

Ally:
I'm not gonna leave you now
Oh, I know it's gon' get better
I'm not gonna leave you now
Oh, I know it's gon' get better

I won't leave you for a money man
No matter what we go through
I'm not gonna leave you now
Oh, I know it's gon' get better

Normani:
I don't know why you always think that I
Always think I'm unsatisfied
That I'm tempted by kings with the finest of things

Unhappy with our paradise
That I'm wanting the trees that are growing the green
But you know all that I want is you
