I was so in love with you
There was nothing I could do
Wouldn't give me the time of day
Now you wanna be with me
You say you wanna be with me

You said I was the best
Gave your love out to the rest
There was nothing I could say
But now it's going good for me
You say you wanna be with me
Now

Yeah your telling me I am where it's at
But I ain't having none of that

Because I told you, you'd live to regret it
Now I don't wanna make you feel bad
But when it comes to me just forget it
I'll be the best you never had
You put me through so many emotions
Now baby it's your turn for that
Cause in your empty heart I have left a mark
The best you never had

No, No, No

You saw me as a friend
Baby I don't want revenge
But if you must know the truth
What you didn't see in me
Reflects what you'll never be, no
When you're telling me I always was the one
I feel your desperation

Because I told you, you'd live to regret it
Now I don't wanna make you feel bad
But when it comes to me just forget it
I'll be the best you never had
You put me through so many emotions
Now baby it's your turn for that
Cause in your empty heart I have left a mark
The best you never had

Back rubs
Good love
My stuff
That's what you missed out on
My touch
So much we could've had
And baby
You miss
My kiss
My lips
The love I had for you
Our song, so long
Baby don't it make you sad

Because I told you, you'd live to regret it
Now I don't wanna make you feel bad
But when it comes to me just forget it
I'll be the best you never had
You put me through so many emotions
Now baby it's your turn for that
Cause in your empty heart I have left a mark
The best you never had

Because I told you, you'd live to regret it
Now I don't wanna make you feel bad
But when it comes to me just forget it
I'll be the best you never had
You put me through so many emotions
Now baby it's your turn for that
Cause in your empty heart I have left a mark
The best you never had

Well I will always be the best you never had

The best you never had

    General Comment:oooo i love this song. The instrumental is amazing!
    There are some pretty low notes in this though..i wonder how it'll be performed live as Leona sometimes struggles to reach the lower notes..

    General CommentSo she liked someone, they rejected/ghosted her, now they want her back but she has moved on. Anyone who rejects you and then decides later that they made a mistake is not someone you should give your time to. Great lyrics. Great message.
