"Best Of Me" as written by and Deryck Jason Whibley....
It's so hard
To say that
I'm sorry
I'll make everything all right

All these things
That I've done
Now what have
I become, and where'd I go wrong?

I don't need to hurt just to put you first
I won't tell you lies
I will stand accused with my hand on my heart
I'm just trying to say...

I'm sorry
It's all that I can say
You mean so much, and I'd fix all that I've done
If I could start again
I'd throw it all away
To the shadows of regrets, and you would have the best of me

I know that
I can't take
Back all of
The mistakes but I will try

Although it's
Not easy
I know you
Believe me 'cause I would not lie

Don't believe their lies told through jealous aisles
They don't understand
I won't break your heart; I won't bring you down
But I will have to say...

I'm sorry
It's all that I can say
You mean so much, and I'd fix all that I've done
If I could start again
I'd throw it all away
To the shadows of regrets, and you would have the best of me

I'm sorry
It's all that I can say
You mean so much, and I'd fix all that I've done
If I could start again
I'd throw it all away
To the shadows of regrets, and you would have the best of me

    General CommentThe whole time they were together, the relationship was good and it worked, but there were some things he didn't do to the best of his ability. Now that he has lost her, for whatever reason, he realizes that he loves her so much that he will do whatever it takes to get her back because she "means so much" and he will give her absolutely everything he has to give if she would only give him another chance. He realizes now that it's time to show her the best of him, because he finally sees that she is the one and deserves his whole heart.

    General Commentnumber22 I was thinking the same thing in regards to the chorus sounding like "the reason" because it really does. I think that this song might end up being underappreciated compared to the others on this album but I think it's really powerful when you stop to really listen.

    Although its not easy, I know you believe me
    Cause I would not lie
