"Best Days" as written by and Graham Patrick Colton Dave Bassett....
With everything I've ever done
I'd give it all to everyone
For one more day
Another night I'm waking through
Another door I walk into
I can't break

And it's a winding road
And it's a long way home

So don't wait
For someone to tell you it's too late
Cause these are the best days
There's always something tomorrow
So I say let's make the best of tonight
Here comes the rest of our lives

I count the steps
The distance to
The time when it was me and you
It's so far gone

Another face,
Another friend,
Another place,
Another end,
But I'll hang on

And it's a winding road
And it's a long way home

So don't wait
For someone to tell you it's too late
Cause these are the best days
There's always something tomorrow
So I say let's make the best of tonight
Yeah, let's make the best of tonight
Here comes the rest of our lives
Rest of our lives

And it's a winding road
It's a long way home

So don't wait
For someone to tell you it's too late
Cause these are the best days
There's always something tomorrow
So I say let's make the best of it

Don't wait
Cause no one can tell you it's too late
Cause these are the best days
There's always something tomorrow
So I say let's make the best of tonight
Yeah, let's make the best of tonight
We'll make the best of tonight
Here comes the rest of our lives

    My InterpretationI can interpret this song to be about a guy that liked this girl but he never told her and they always hung out just never said anything... One day the girl comes home with a different guy so that makes the best friend upset and wants to set things straight, "So don't wait for someone to tell you its too late" and what ever you do both of you should try and enjoy the rest of the night..

    General CommentJust to help out with some of the lyrics:
    -"is so far gone"
    -"But I'll hang on"
    -"So I say..." not "So I'll say..."

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone trying to tell his friends that sometimes, although things don't always go as planned, it's important to remember that time spent with friends is the best. It's also saying not to hold back and just go with your feelings, never be discouraged to say what you think.
    It also seems like a song about going away and it is the last night he will be seeing these people for a while so they should just make the most of everything and remember all the great times shared.

    General CommentHmmm, I think this song is talking about how he probably won't be seeing his friends for a while and to make the best out of the days they all have left. it really reminds me of me and my friends. you know what? it sounds like a graduation song! how he says, "it's a winding road" and "it's a long way home" and "let's make the best of tonight" and "here comes the rest of our lives"

    General CommentI agree with the graduation song idea rissaluj...i definitely get a visual of a last goodbye everyone drives off to college at the end of the movie scene lol. I'm suprised more people haven't commented...i actually heard this song on the sirius radio. Oh well, guess that means we've got a few more months before it's ruined by being overplayed on the regualr stations. I don't know why, but i really like this song. The lyrics are very simple, but the melody sounds very inspirational. In a way, kind fo similar to train. Great job graham colton!

    General CommentI agree with the firend idea that lifes to short. But i think its about a friend who doesnt smile laugh talk as much as they should.
    He's telling him he worrys to much and your stressing to much. Specificly i think he's talking about graduating high school or college. Maybe even middle school.

    And he's saying lets make the best of each day. Cus the best days of your life normaly takes place within all the crazyness of Highschool or College. Dont waste your best days.

    General CommentI also agree with the friend idea. But it also could mean, just enjoy life and enjoy the moments you have now, because you don't know what will happen the next day. This does make a great graduation song, it fits perfectly.

    General CommentIm def. going to try and talk my class principal into making this our graduating song.

    I think its something more like, lets say your at a graduation you shouldnt cry you should be happy because they are excelling at life and they shouldnt hold back if they have a dream they shouldnt follow it they should chase it. it makdes me think of an inspirational song.

    General CommentAwesome song, I'm surprised there are so few comments. But I def agree with the graduation idea. I listened to it a lot back in the summer before leaving home for college. Now I just listened to it again and remembered all the great times this summer with friends and fam. Flagtown forever!!
