"You Are the Best Thing" as written by and Raycharles Jack Lamontagne....
Baby
It's been a long day, baby
Things ain't been going my way
And now I need you here
To clear my mind all the time

And baby
The way you move me, it's crazy
It's like you see right through me
And make it easier
Believe me, you don't even have to try

Oh, because
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, oh)
Ever happened to me

Baby
We've come a long way
And baby
You know I hope and I pray
That you believe me
When I say this love will never fade away

Oh, because
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, oh)
Ever happened to me

Both of us have known love before
To come on promising like a spring to walk on out the door
Our words are strong and our hearts are kind
Let me tell you just exactly what's on my mind

Oh, because
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, oh)
Ever happened to me

Oh, because
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, oh)
Ever happened to me

    General CommentWhat a fantastic new song from Ray LaMontagne! I love its easy motown vibe and simple, joyful lyrics. The perfect dancing-in-the-living-room song.

    General CommentI just heard this song for the first time today.
    And I LOVE it!!!!!
    It reminds me of a 60's song.
    Ray's voice is kinda like Joe Cockers at least on this song.
    I'm a fan now and I'm gonna buy his albums!
