"The Best In Me" as written by and Dan Koch....
If only you could hear the beat, beat, beat
Of my beating heart
Then maybe we, we, we
Would never be apart
It's a beautiful sky on a beautiful day
But only you can stretch a smile across my face

So I'm waiting, waiting, waiting
For you to be calling, calling, calling
Cause its another drive
Another day on the road
And honey I don't have the strength for another show, no

And I got it almost figured out
If I could get you closer to me
'cause it's a good life for a short time
(whoa oh, whoa oh)
And you've got me almost figured out
There's almost nothing left to see
You're bringing out the best in me
You're bringing out the best in me

And it's a long way back to the golden state
Where the city's held in by a golden gate
Like a giant jar full of fireflies
The yellow lights blinking on the mountainside
And I wish I had a plane or a cable car
'cause all I really want is to be in your arms

And I got it almost figured out
If I could get you closer to me
'cause it's a good life for a short time
And you've got me almost figured out
There's almost nothing left to see
You're bringing out the best in me
You're bringing out the best in me

whoa oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh..
Oh oh oh oh oh oh..
Oh oh oh oh oh oh..
(x4)

And I've got it almost figured out
If I could get you closer to me
'cause it's a good life for a short time
And you've got me almost figured out
(you've got me almost figured out)
You're bringing out the best in me
You're bringing out the best in me...
You're bringing out the best in me...

whoa oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh..
(x2)

you're bringing out the best in me...
(you've got me almost figured out..)
You're bringing out the best in me...
(you've got me almost figured out..)

    General Commenttheir relationship would be perfect if only he wasn't so far apart from her.


    but he does still loves her, even though they're not always together.

    General CommentI agree with ellie117.

    "and i wish i had a plane or a cable car
    cause all i really want is to be in your arms"

    adorable.


    they remind me of a mix of hellogoodbye and mae a little bit. from this song at least, it's the only one i've listened to so far.

    General CommentYep, the song's about a guy who's on tour who misses his girl. Probably written while the band was touring.. I seem to get that impression.

    General CommentThis song has grown on, at first I didn't like it as much b/c it reminded me of Hellogoodbye, who I'm not a huge fan. But then I saw them play this live and love it. These guys play an amazing live set. They have such a good energy when they are on stage.

    General Commentsucks to have someone live so far from you and you love them. never happened to me though. and I don't think I could do that. ;|

    General CommentIt pretty much explains itself.
    Girl's in California, boy has no choice but to go on tour with his band - and she understands that, but he misses her a lot sometimes and just wishes he could fly back to her; because she gives him the strength she needs.

    OR girl's in California, boy lives somewhere else, and then the rest is basically the same.

    General Commenti can see the hellogoodbye similarities but i don't like them

    this song isn't really an accurate representation of the band or their overall sound throughout their albums.

    my two cents, good tune too
