"Best Days of Your Life" as written by Taylor Swift and Kellie Pickler....
Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind
From the day we met 'till you were making me cry
And it's just too bad, cause you've already had the best days
The best days of your life

Ain't it a shame?
A shame that every time you hear my name
Brought up in a casual conversation
You can't think straight

And ain't it sad?
You can forget about what we had
Take a look at her and do you like what you see?
Or do you wish it was me

Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind
From the day we met to the very last night
And it's just too bad, cause you've already had the best days
The best days of you life

And does she know?
Know about the times you used to hold me
Wrapped me in your arms and how you told me
I'd be the only one

I heard about
Yeah, someone told me once, when you were out
She went a little crazy ran her mouth about me
Ain't jealousy funny?

Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind
From the day we met to the very last night
And it's just too bad, cause you've already had the best days
The best days of you life

With me was a fairytale love
I was head-over-heals 'til you threw away "us"
And it's just too bad you've, cause you've already had the best days
The best days of your life

I heard you're gonna get married
Have a nice little family
Live out my dreams with someone new

But, I've been told that a cheater
Is always a cheater
I've got my pride, and she's got you

Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind
From the day we met 'til you were making me cry
And it's just too bad, cause you've already had the best days
The best days of your life

Of your life
Oh, oh, yeah
You're gonna think of me
You're gonna think of me in your life
Oh, oh, yeah
It's a shame, it's a shame

    General Commenti'm shocked that this hasn't been commented yet.
    this is easily the greatest break up song ever. it makes you feel so so good about yourself. hahaha

    basically its saying that you shouldnt have broken up with this girl, because you will never find anything like her again and will continue to think about her constantly. you've already had the best days of your life.

    General CommentI think this is every girl's song for that certain ex, and I'm no different. I don't like many other songs by Kellie, but this song is amazing. <3

    My Opinioni heard kellie pickler didnt even co-write the song.. taylor swift wrote the whole thing!
    it sounded more like something taylor would write anyways.

    General Commentisn't the first chorus (like, the VERY beginning one)

    I'll be there in the back of your mind
    From the day we met to you making me cry
    And it's just too bad you've already had
    The best days, the best days of your life

    it sounds like this one, not the one you already have up there. just saying.
    oh, and I love this song. I love hos Taytay is in there, too, and how she wrote it. I find it sorta funny how Taylor is writing a lot of songs for other people, too. She's REALLY good. THis song must be, like, the anthem for breaking up with that ONE boyfriend, like xx darling xx said. so awesome. And the orchestra - sorry, i don't know which instrument it is - at the very beginning is my fave part of it, too. sounds so cool.

    General Commentoh, and isn't it supposed to be "Wish it was me" not "with it was me"? Whoever did the lyrics for this one, you must be ten or something. Some parts are so obvious it's sad. whatever. you should really fix it.

    General CommentOh don't be so ridiculous. She CO-WROTE it. Taylor and Kellie wrote it. If it was all Taylor they would have said so. Very fun song though.

    General CommentHer ex is dating someone else. He is living out the life she wanted. He cheated so she doesnt regret the breakup at all. she got put through a lot and is not gonna go back to that. You cant posssibly be happy with her b cuz u already had the best days of your life with me. You are always gonna remember me even years from now when u have a family with her. that is what this song is about.
