"The Best Thing" as written by and Daniel/hayes Jones....
Never want to fly
Never want to leave
Never want to say what you mean to me
Never want to run
Frightened to believe
You're the best thing about me

Sometimes I feel like this is only chemistry
Stuck in a maze searching for a way to
Shut down turn around feel the ground beneath me
You're so close where do you end
Where do I begin?
Always pushing and pulling
Sometimes vanity takes vacation time on me
I'm in a daze stumbling bewildered
North of gravity head up in the stratosphere
You and I roller coaster riding love
You're the center of adrenalin
And I'm beginning to understand

Never want to fly
Never want to leave
Never want to say what you mean to me
Never want to run
Frightened to believe
You're the best thing about me

Walk on broken glass make my way through fire
These are things I would do for love
Farewell peace of mind kiss goodbye to reason
Up is down the impossible occurs each day
This intoxication thrills me
I only pray it doesn't kill me

Never want to fly
Never want to leave
Never want to say what you mean to me
Never want to run
Frightened to believe
You're the best thing about me

You're the center of adrenalin
And I'm beginning to understand
You could be the best thing about me

Never want to fly
Never want to leave
Never want to say what you mean to me
Never want to run
Frightened to believe
You're the best thing about me
What if you're the best thing about me

    General CommentThis song is *wonderful* live (though I've only also seen it on the video!) It's a perfect opening song. It's full of life and energy and the guitars....very nice.

    General CommentI LOVE it...I've got the "Superstars and Cannonballs" dvd and they play it so fine...
    Lyrically, one of my favourites uptempo songs...I find it so sincere, and I especially enjoy the last lines "what if you are the best thing about me...?" which is the way I feel at the moment, I'm longing to feel that crazyness-sillyness about someone again ! :)

    General CommentTo a certain someone... write your own songs, dammit. :)

    On a more relevant note, this is a top song. Darren Hayes has a way with words, and i dig his love songs. Shame he had to turn gay, I had a lot more respect for him. Still... this song is a great artwork.
