"Best Laid Plans" as written by Wayne Hector, Steve Robson and James Blunt....
You don't like it in the shadows
You won't let me shine the light
I would wash away your troubles
But it seems

The more that I hold on
The more that you let go
And I know, you better let somebody love you
Or find yourself, on your own

Tell me why all the best laid plans
Fall apart in your hands
And my good intentions never end,
The way I meant

If we don't talk about the future
Then should I just, follow you into the dark
Yeah, and does your silence keep you cool
While the cracks form on my heart

Tell me why all the best laid plans
Fall apart in your hands
And my good intentions never end,
The way I meant

It seems to me some fine friends have watched you turn your back
It seems you only want the things that you can't have.

Tell me why all the best laid plans
Fall apart in your hands
And my good intentions never end,
The way I meant

Tell me why all the best laid plans
Fall apart in your hands
And my good intentions never end,
The way I meant

    My OpinionThis song was probably inspired by the john steinbeck novel 'of mice and men'. The novel was named after a poem line 'the best laid plans of mice and men, gang (go) aft(often) astray'.
    I have read the book (i recommend it) and am certain that is what the song was inspired by
