"The Best Thing" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
It's been a year filled with problems
But now you're here, almost as if to solve them
And I can't live in a world without you, now

All my life I've been searching for you
How did I survive in this world before you?
Cause I don't want to live another day without you, now

This is the best thing, the best thing that could be happening
And I think you would agree, the best thing is that it's happening to you and me

All I want to have is all that you can give me
And I'll give right back everything I've kept in me
Cause nothing ever felt as right as this does right now

I'll go back to before we met
Try and erase the past, try harder to forget
Cause nothing will ever be as good as here and now

Cause when I looked into your eyes and you dared to stare right back
You should have said, "Nice to meet you, I'm your other half"

This is the best thing, the best thing that could be happening
And I think you would agree, the best thing is that it's happening

This is the best thing, the best thing that could be happening
And I think you would agree, the best thing is that it's happening to you and me

The best thing is that it's happening to you and me

I always knew
I'd find someone
I never dreamed
It'd be like this
Cause you've surpassed all that I'd hoped for and ever wished
And I'm trying so hard, with all my heart and mind
To make your life as good as you've made mine

This is the best thing, the best thing that could be happening
And I think you would agree, the best thing is that it's happening to you and me

The best thing is that it's happening to you and me
The best thing is that it's happening to you and me

This is the best thing, the best thing that could be happening
And I think you would agree, the best thing is that it's happening to you and me

    General CommentThis song is about a girl that has changed his life for the better. Again, there aren't any specific references to differentiate between God and a girl, but these lines make it out to be a person:

    'Cause when I looked into your eyes and you dared to stare right back
    You should have said, "Nice to meet you, I'm your other half"

    Catchiest lines in the best song on the album right there!

    General CommentI agree with the person opinion. Because really, how can we make God's life as good as He's made ours? IMPOSSIBLE.


    It's very romantic. But you must admit it'd be a little weird if you met someone and they said "Nice to meet you, I'm your other half"... because how could they know? unless they are a stalker. But that'd just be even weirder.

    Anyway, I do love this song. Good job Matty T

    General CommentI love this song, and though I can see how it could also apply to God, for once I actually agree that it is about a girl, and how perfect for him she seems.

    General Commentreminds me of how i went through such a horrible breakup with my ex last year (abusive relationship), and right at the perfect time, the guy i was in love with all along comes and makes everything alright and saves me right when i needed it the most. i heard this song for the first time on the radio today and nearly cried, it instantly reminded me of how lucky i am to have someone who saves me at my weakest times and makes everything better for me. especially lately, i really need reminding that he's always been there for me.

    General Commenti think this song is about a boy and girl who have known each other for awhile and finally realize they like each other as more than a friend, it's the best thing that could be happening to them, falling in love.
