Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning) Lyrics

So you sailed away into a grey sky morning
Now I'm here to stay, love can be so boring
And nothing's quite the same now
I just say your name now.

But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You don't want me back
You're just the best I ever had.

So you stole my world, now I'm just a phony
Remembering the girl leaves me down and loney
Well send it in a letter
Make yourself feel better.

But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You dont want me back
You're just the best I ever had.

And it might take some time to patch me up inside
but I cant take it so I, I run away and hide
And I might find in time that you were always right
You're always right.

So you sailed away into a grey sky morning
Now, I'm here to stay, love can be so boring
Was it what you wanted?
Could it be I'm haunted?

But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You dont want me back
You're just the best I ever had.

You're just the best I ever had

listening to the vertical horizon version, it's clearly her leaving, him wanting her back, because shes the best. but when i listen to gary sing it i interpret it to be out his wife who committed suicide. beautiuflly written song which to me is about losing your best friend and love of your life and them not wanting to fight for you or to be with you.

I love this song (the original that Is) I like what Gary Allen did with It but It just doesn't capture the greatness like Vertical Horizon did.

This song is just as great as the original. Especially if you know that Gary Allan's wife committed suicide. I can really feel his pain, and that brings a new element to the song.

I prefer the Gary Allan version to the Vertical Horizon version. I think Garry Allan has a better voice for it. I can understand the song meaning to Gary with his wife dying but it's meaning to me is for a break up. She left him and he's just left to be lonely.

What a beautiful remake. You can really feel his sadness. This was her favorite song, that is why he re-did it. Great song!!

When the song starts, before there are even any words, it bring tears to my eyes. The guitar reminds me of sorrow, but then the fiddle starts and it makes me think of hope. It doesn't even matter if you know about his wife. There is something completely heart wrenching in the way he says best I ever had. I saw him in concert and was bawling by the end of this one.

When I saw Gary Allan in concert, he said that his nephew sent him this song after his wife committed suicide, so he decided to record it.
