"Best I Ever Had" as written by Jesse Wainwright, Cameron Melnyk, Simon Clow and Jean Paul Philippon....
Now I know I messed up bad
You were the best I ever had
I let you down in the worst way
It hurts me every single day
I'm dying to let you know

Now I'm here to say I'm sorry
And ask for a second chance
Cause when it all comes down to the end
I could sure use a friend

So many things I would take back
You were the best I ever had
I don't blame you for hating me
I didn't mean to make you leave

You and I were living like a love song
I feel so bad, I feel so bad that you're gone
Now I know you're the only one that I want
I want you back, I want you

Now I'm here to say I'm sorry
And ask for a second chance
'Cause when it all comes down to the end
I could sure use a friend
Now I'm here to say I'm sorry
And ask for a second chance
All I want to do is make it up to you
Cause when it all comes down to the end
You were the best I ever had

We fell in love for a reason
Now you're leaving
And I just want you back
So many things we believed in
Now you're leaving and words won't bring you back
I'll never let go of the heart I broke

You and I were living like a love song
Now I know you're the only one that I want
I want you back, I want you

Now I'm here to say I'm sorry
And ask for a second chance
All I want to do is make it up to you
'Cause when it all comes down to the end
I could sure use a friend
Now I'm here to say I'm sorry
And ask for a second chance
All I want to do is make it up to you
'Cause when it all comes down to the end
You were the best I ever had

I can't believe that I threw away all our dreams
I can't believe now that you're gone how much you mean to me
I feel so bad, I feel so bad
You were the best I ever had
I can't believe that I threw away all our dreams
I can't believe now that you're gone how much you mean to me
I feel so bad, I feel so bad
You were,
You were the best I ever had

    General Commentit talks about a guy and a girl. the guy wants her back. he admitted he made mistakes but he said he was sorry and he wants her back. he never wanted anyone else only her. because she was the best he ever had. but she doesn't care. so she leaves him. but he keeps trying to get her back.

    General CommentGreat song, of course all their songs are great.

    Pretty obvious song really, He made a huge mistake in his relationship, now he's feeling the regret.

    Very meaningful, I especially like the:
    "I Can't believe that I threw away all our dreams, I can't believe now that you're gone how much you mean to me, I feel so bad, I feel so bad."

    Very Powerful

    General CommentThis song is amazing.
    But you don't realize until you watch the video, that this song isn't about making a huge mistake in a relationship at all.
    There's a lot more to it than that.
