"The Best Of Everything" as written by and Tom Petty....
She probably works in a restaurant
That's what her momma did
But I don't know if she ever really
Could put up with it
Or maybe she sings in a nightclub
'Cause sometimes she used to sing
But I don't know if it ever
Amounted to anything

But listen honey,
Wherever you are tonight,
I wish you the best of everything, in the world
And I hope you found
Whatever you were looking for

Yeah and it's over before you know it
It all goes by so fast
Yeah, the bad nights last forever
And the good nights don't ever seem to last
And man, we never had the real thing,
But sometimes we used to kiss
Back when we didn't understand,
What we were caught up in.

Wherever you are tonight,
I wish you the best of everything, in the world
And I hope you found
Whatever you were looking for

Wherever you are tonight,
I wish you the best of everything, in the world
And I hope you found
Whatever you were looking for

    Everyone is missing out on a great song.

    Yeah and it's over before you know it
    It all goes by so fast
    Yeah the bad nights take forever
    And the good nights don't ever seem to last
    And man, we never had the real thing
    But sometimes we used to kiss
    Back when we didn't understand
    What we were caught up in

    Some of Toms best lyrics IMO
