"The Best Of Me" as written by Owen Hunte, Yomi Simeo Davies, Natalie Rebecka Smith and Kaman Jordan Miller....
In my mind you never left
Falling wasn't true
I had faith, you flew past the sky
Straight through the night

And the sun reflects the night
Carrying the very same thing
In your heart that saved me
But maybe you've stopped listening

Falling on my selfish ways
It takes faith to see
So close your eyes and search
Deeper than just memories

I never stopped believing in you and me
Your leaving never changed things
I've been here for too long
To just walk away

    General Commenti think its about somone he really loved dying and going into heaven. Hes been there and loved the person too much to just forget them and move on.

    General CommentI think it's about two people that both left God. The one came back (the one singing) and the one he's singing too didn't come back.

    General CommentThis song is about believing in God and saying that you will never stop loving Him and you will never stop believing in Him.

    General Commentthis song is amazing..
    when i first heard it..
    i figured it to be about a girl..
    but if you really comprehend and understand the lyrics,
    its about losing faith.
    he's trying to hold on,
    while others are just "walking away"
    great message.
    great band *cough* with dallas *cough*
    great song.

    dallas made this band for me.
    now there just..there.

    It seems pretty clear to me what this song is about...two people are together, in love, and then one of them leaves the other one. Whether "leaving" means ending the relationship and moving on or dying or something else, it's still leaving the other person alone. And the other person won't, or can't, move on from it. They can't "just walk away," and they can't stop believing in that relationship, in that love, no matter how long the other person has been gone for.
    I've personally been going through this for what seems like forever now, and I can definitely relate...it doesn't get easier with time. Love is love, and when you've lost it, you're never really whole again until the one you loved comes back.
