"Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning)" as written by Danny Robert Hamilton, Nakia S. Coleman, Ann Marie Hamilton, Aubrey Drake Graham, Matthew Jehu Samuels and Dwayne Carter....
So you sailed away
Into a gray sky morning.
Now I'm here to stay,
Love can be so boring.
Nothing quite the same now,
I just say your name now.

But its 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 lonely.
Sending in the weather
Make yourself feel better.

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

And it may take some time
To patch me up inside.
But I can't take it
So I run away and hide.
And I may find in time
That you were always right.
You're always right.

So you sailed away,
Into a gray sky morning.
Now I'm here to stay,
Love can be so boring.
What was it you wanted?
Could it be you're haunted?

But its not so bad,
You're only the best
I ever had.
I don't want you back.
You're just the best
I ever had.

The best I ever had.
Best I ever had.

    My InterpretationBest I Ever Had by Vertical Horizon
    The song actually reminds us of something or someone we had in our life once and they just can’t stay forever. It hurts when the best you ever had has “sailed away”. It shows the stages one will go through. Dealing with the other not wanting you, then not having a need for you. What probably remain in you were memories to deal with, and you know that things will never be the same again. I think the hardest part was the denial stage as mentioned in the lyrics “I don’t want you back”, telling yourself that you’re okay, trying to believe that you’re okay but honestly you are not. Maybe the meaning of this song is getting over with someone, dealing with your loss but I think the most painful is the last part of the lyrics because it makes you see how all that you can do for yourself is to be in denial especially when that’s the best you ever had-“Well it’s not so bad”. And you know that probably getting over with someone is a long process, “it may take some time to patch me up inside”, “I can’t take it so I ran away and hide” and all you can do was try to deal and carry on with it.
    Well, the song is painful to listen especially if it reminds you of something- a person, a thing, or a situation you been through with. This maybe one of the saddest songs I’ve ever heard and I came across this song while browsing the contents of my laptop. Something about this song made me a little bit nostalgic and will always remind me of a friend because we always love to listen to this song. And whenever I hear this song I came close to remember someone whom I also consider the “best I ever had”
