"The Best Today" as written by and Keaton Leslie Henson....
Stuck in a metal tube
I sit and stare at you
You seem to look through me
I wonder what you see

I still have two stations yet
Counting the one that we just left
I wish I could stay with you
And ask you what you do

I figure you love to read
Don't look for the faults like me
You probably love the sun
But think you're the only one

And I wish I could wake at dawn
To see you without make up on
Wish I had the guts to say
You look the best today
You look the best today
You look the best today

I feel I know your smile
Like I saw it when I was a child
Though today you just frown and read
Your eyes flicker perfectly
Rush hour crush surrounds
Reminds me that we're still in town
I think of the time when I
Sat and watched a stranger cry

I wish I could wake at dawn
To see you without make up on
Wish I had the guts to say
You look the best today
You look the best today
You look the best today
You look the best today
You look the best today

As I get off the train
Look back to see you through the frame
A man sits and blocks my view
Then I forget you

    General CommentThis is so familiar to me. Falling in love with someone from afar on public transportation, imagining what they're like inside, wishing you had the guts to say something to them, then leaving and forgetting about them completely, until the process repeats itself with someone else. Amazing song.
