"The Best Is Yet To Come" as written by Jason Keith Perry, Aled Phillips, Iain Prasad Mahanty, Joel Fisher, Andrew William Sheehy and Philip James Jenkins....
It started with the sun in your eyes
The devil in your throat and in your thighs
A pocket full of notes
A head of lies is no good for you
Wrestle with the questions in your head
Fumble with the stranger in your bed
Condemn it to the great abyss instead
Whatever suits you

Cause in the dark we do our worst
Turn the lights out, turn the lights out
You'll be my last, I'll be your first
Turn the lights out, baby turn the lights out

Lay down slowly
Don't you fool me
Cause I don't wanna be along tonight
The best is yet to come

It finished with the stars in your eyes
Jesus on your breath and in your bite
Listen to the pleading and the cries
Make a chorus of you
Wrestle with the questions in your head
They interrupt your sleep and fill your bed
Fuck yourself into the record books instead
It's what you were born to do

Cause in the dark we do our worst
Turn the lights out, turn the lights out
You'll be my last, I'll be your first
Turn the lights out, baby turn the lights out

Lay down slowly
Don't you fool me
Cause I don't wanna be along tonight
The best is yet to come

Come now baby, don't be hasty
Cause I don't wanna be alone tonight
The best is yet to come

The promises, the promises we made
Another great, another great mistake
A little love, a little bit more hate
It's just about as much as I can take

Lay down slowly
Don't you fool me
Cause I don't wanna be along tonight
The best is yet to come

Come now baby, don't be hasty
Cause I don't wanna be alone tonight
The best is yet to come

    My InterpretationAlong with nearly every other song on this fantastic album, this song is about sex: the excitement, the high and low points of a relationship and the bitterness of the break-up, sleeping around with people and having fun etc.

    "The devil in your throat and in your thighs"
    She's being naughty and talking dirty to him, pulling some moves to get him in the mood.

    "Fumble with the stranger in your bed, condemn it to the great abyss instead, whatever suits you"
    He's saying she can do what she wants as long as she's happy, such as sleeping with random people or no one until she's in a relationship.

    "It finished with the stars in your eyes, Jesus on your breath and in your bite, listen to the pleading and the cries, make a chorus of you"
    The break-up. She's obviously not happy about it and is crying, begging for him to take her back.

    "Fuck yourself into the record books instead, it's what you were born to do"
    Things are turning bitter. She's continued to sleep around and he's basically saying that her only reason for living is to be a slag.

    "The promises, the promises we made, another great, another great mistake. A little love, a little bit more hate, it's just about as much as I can take"
    He's thinking back to the relationship they had, how he thought he could change her of her dirty ways and that he regrets it all.

    However, this is just my interpretation.
