"Best of Me" as written by Robert John Lange and Bryan Adams....
Tell me what you thought about when you were gone and so alone.
The worst is over.
You can have the best of me.
We got older but we're still young.
We never grew out of this feeling that we won't give up.

Here we lay again.
On 2 separate bedes.
Sporting 4 posts.
We here a familiar voice,
From pictures drawn from
Memory.
We reflect on
Miscommunications and misunderstandings.
And missing each other too.
Must do without to let go.

Turn our music down
And we whisper
Say what you're thinking right now

Tell me what you thought about when you were gone and so alone.
The worst is over.
You can have the best of me.
We got older but we're still young.
We never grew out of this feeling that we won't give up.

Jumping to conclusions
Made me fall away from you.
I'm so glad that the truth,
Has brought that together
Me and you
We're sitting on the ground, (Sitting on the ground)
And we whisper (and we whisper)
Say what you're thinking out loud

Tell me what you thought when you were gone and so alone.
The worst is over.
You can have the best of me.
We got older but we're still young.
We never grew out of the feeling that we won't give up.

Turn our music down.
And we whisper.
We're sitting on the ground.
And we whisper.
We turn our music down.
We're sitting on the ground.
The next time I'm in town
We will kiss girl.
We will kiss girl

Tell me what you thought about when you were gone and so alone.
The worst is over.
You can have the best of me.
We got older but we're still young.
We never grew out of this feeling that we won't.
Feeling that we can't.
We're not ready to give up.

We got older but we're still young.
We never grew out of this feeling that we won't give up.

    General CommentThese two people break up, and as being by themselves they realize that being apart isn't the answer.. and they get back together... and so he's saying "You can have the best of me" because now he realizes how important she is.. this one quote is very true.. and very logical yet poetic:

    we got older
    but we're still young
    we never grew out of this feeling that we wont give up

    even if when you try.. when you love someone, you always will have a part of you loving them.. and that feeling just won't give up.. :)

    General CommentThis song is so good. I cannot wait for their full length to come out. TSL has been my favorite DTR band since they first got signed. They are getting really popular, and for making music like this, they deserve it all and more. This is a beautiful song about wanting to get back together. TSL rules!
