"Next Best Thing" as written by and Michael Grant Gonzalez....
Lying beside you in a dream
and I guess I'm okay
whatever that means
toss and turn endlessly
and I just can't wait till I fall asleep
then I'll have you right
where I always wanted you to be
here with me

and it's the same song, I wanna feel something
when I'm tangled inside of your arms
and I will take any high now just to get me through
it's the next best thing to you

dying to find what this means
but I just can't face reality
I think I'm leaving this scene
oh I hate this place but I just can't leave
and into the night
will I ever fall asleep?
I'm in too deep

and it's the same song, I wanna feel something
when I'm tangled inside of your arms
and I will take any high now just to get me through
it's the next best thing to you

now I'm wasting my time having you on my mind
and I'll take any high just to feel alive
like I did with you

    General CommentThis song is simple...its a guy singing to his girlfriend how much he loves her, and he hates that their nights always have to end. Its an unrequited love song. I remember seeing the band live in 2006 with Poison, and I fell in love with the band. I was dating a girl at the time that swore that this song reminded her of me...she and I went to the show together, and it was an experience I will never forget, even though she and I are no longer together.It just shows a raw emotion, and how guys can be so in love with a girl that she is ALL he thinks about.
