"Nicest Thing" as written by Kate Marie Nash and Jay Malhotra....
All I know is that you're so nice
You're the nicest thing I've seen
I wish that we could give it a go
See if we could be something

I wish I was your favorite girl
I wish you thought I was the reason you are in the world
I wish my smile was your favorite kind of smile
I wish the way that I dressed was your favorite kind of style

I wish you couldn't figure me out
But you always wanna know what I was about
I wish you'd hold my hand
When I was upset
I wish you'd never forget
The look on my face when we first met

I wish you had a favorite beauty spot
That you loved secretly
Cause it was on a hidden bit
That nobody else could see
Basically, I wish that you loved me
I wish that you needed me
I wish that you knew when I said two sugars,
Actually I meant three

I wish that without me your heart would break
I wish that without me you'd be spending the rest of your nights awake
I wish that without me you couldn't eat
I wish I was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep

Look, all I know is that you're the nicest thing I've ever seen
And I wish that we could see if we could be something
Yeah I wish that we could see if we could be something

    General CommentOh god this song reminds me of a guy I liked so much.
    We talked all the time, he said he loved me.
    Ha, he was always high to.
    I listened to this song 24/7 and cried all the time.

    This song is like the story of our weird 7 month 'friendship'

    It is a little cheesy, but that's love.
    Love can be cheesy, and sweeet.
    And I craved it.
    She's talking about a friend she had, and she liked him so much, but she
    knew he didn't like her that way.
    And she just wishes they could at leaste try.

    I think/

    General CommentThis song is incredibly beautiful. It explains unrequited love perfectly. That "two sugars" line explains how you want all the really small things because if that person knew that, then it would mean the world to you... or that's what I think.

    General CommentEven though the lyrics to this song are pretty simple, it just sums up the whole unrequited love thing quite perfectly. It doesn't need complicated metaphors to get the point across.
    I think this song is just beautiful. I loved the live version i heard but the album version is just stunning.
    This song is just too easy to relate to. Can tell its gonna be my song for the next few weeks haha :]

    General CommentMarius01 - The "two sugars" line implies that she wishes that he knew her well enough to understand all the little codes and idiosyncrasies of her personality, rather like in a married couple.

    General CommentThis song is the definition of my love life. All I want is this one person. I wish all these things for us, I wish I was his favourite, I wish he felt the same, but wishing is all I can do. I absolutely adore this song..♥
