Best I Ever Had

  • Melt Antarctica, savin' Africa
    I failed algebra and I misused some times
    We're at war again, save the world again
    You can all join in, but you can't smoke inside

    You said "Take me home, I can't stand this place
    'Cause there's too many hipsters and I just can't relate"
    You're my neon gypsy, my desert rain
    You're my "Helter Skelter", oh how can I explain that

    You're the best I ever had
    And I'm trying not to get stuck in my head
    But I read that soda kills you and Jesus saves
    On the bathroom wall where I saw your name
    You're the best I ever had
    I won't be the same

    Night sky full of drones, this neighborhood of clones
    I'm looking at the crowd and they're staring at their phones
    They groom the coast line here, the sun will disappear (Oh God!)
    And maybe once a year, I think they'll clean my car

    Caught my reflection, drop the call
    I've been medicated with cigarettes and alcohol
    I got vertigo, no I can't see straight
    I got obligations though I'm usually late but

    You're the best I ever had
    And I'm trying not to get stuck in my head
    But I think I dropped my wallet in Santa Fe
    Lost the only picture I had of you that day and
    You're the best I ever had
    I won't be the same

    Hey West Virginia, hey North Dakota
    I think I love you, but don't even know you
    Hey Massachusetts, hey Minnesota
    I think I love you, but don't even know you
    Hey Carolina, hey Oklahoma
    I think I love you, but don't even know you
    Hey Alabama, hey California
    I think I love you, but don't even know you

    You're the best I ever had (you're the best I ever had)
    And I'm trying not to get stuck in my head
    But I passed the longest sign on the interstate
    Saying "Find someone before it gets too late"
    You're the best I ever had (you're the best I ever had)
    I won't be the same

    Hey West Virginia, hey North Dakota (Oh why, oh why)
    I think I love you, but don't even know you (I won't be the same)
    Hey Massachusetts, hey Minnesota (you're the best I ever had)
    I think I love you, but don't even know you (I won't be the same)

    Yeah, I won't be the same Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON, GAVIN DEGRAW
