Was this all a joke
Was this all a lie
Did you even think of me that night
I can't believe you could do this to me
But then again you're just another guy
I guess I should have expected it
Since it happened before
But I believed you could change
Guess I was wrong

(Chorus)
I loved you with all my heart
But you just threw me away
Does she give you what you need
Does she even know you like I did
I bet she doesn't
I bet she doesn't
I bet she doesn't make you feel like I did
I bet you'll never get anything better
I bet that I'm the best you'll ever have

I know we started out a little rough
But then I thought we made it through the bad times
So I thought we could survive anything
But I've always been too much of a dreamer
This past year has been one of the best I think I've ever had
But now I know that it can only go up from here

(Chorus)

You used to make me feel so bad
For all the little things I did wrong
But now I know it was a show to cover up
Your big mistake

(Chorus)

I bet that I'm the best you'll ever have

    General CommentIncredible lyricism. Palmer's subtlety is her strongest attribute, other than, of course, her melodic singing voice.

    I believe that this song is really a metaphor for her belief in God and her dedication to the Christian way. But like I said, subtlety is her strong suit, so we'll never know for sure.

    General CommentThe song is amazing. It was about her past encounter with a bear. I'm told that it took a major chunk out of her leg, but was scared off when Maddy punched it in the nose.
