Best Friend

Album: MDNA Deluxe Edition (2012)
  • I miss your brain
    The way you think
    But I don't miss
    The way you used to drink

    I miss our talks
    The Universal Law
    You had a way
    Of seeing through my thoughts

    It's so confusing I thought I met my match
    An intellectual would telling for a catch
    You always said we be better off as friends
    It was inevitable that it would end

    Your picture's off my wall
    But I'm still waiting for your call
    And every man that walks through that door
    Will be compared to you forever more

    Still I have no regret
    'Cause I survived the biggest test
    I cannot lie and I won't pretend
    But I feel like I lost my very best friend

    I miss the country side where we used to lay
    The smell of roses on a lovely summer day
    You made me laugh, you had a clever wit
    I miss the good times, I don't miss all of it

    You wrote me poetry
    You had a way with words
    You said you wanted more than just a pretty girl
    Maybe I challenged you a little bit too much
    We couldn't have two drivers on the clutch

    Your picture's off my wall
    But I'm still waiting for your call
    And every man that walks through that door
    Will be compared to you forever more

    Still I have no regrets
    'Cause I survived the biggest test
    I cannot lie and I won't pretend
    But I feel like I lost my very best friend

    Yet I have no regrets
    'Cause I survived all biggest tests
    I cannot lie and I won't pretend
    But I feel like I lost my very best friend

    It's so sad that had to end
    I lost my very best friend (lost my very best friend)
    Not gonna candy coat it
    And I don't want to pretend

    I put away your letter
    Saved the best ones that I have
    It wasn't always perfect
    But it wasn't always bad

    Still I have no regrets
    'Cause I survived the biggest test
    I cannot lie and I won't pretend
    But I feel like I lost my very best friend

    Yet I have no regrets
    'Cause I survived the biggest test
    I will not lie and I can't pretend
    But I feel like I lost my very best friend

    It's so sad that it had to end Writer/s: MARCO BENASSI, ALESSANDRO BENASSI, MADONNA CICCONE

  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdBest Friend-The absolute saddest song Madonna has written and sung to her Ciccone Name. The song is a sad lament about how she loved-and lost-a Brit rocker named Guy Ritchie and how losing him was and will always be the saddest event in Madonna's American Life. In this song, Madonna Lives to Tell about a sadness that will stay with her forever. All that's left between Madonna and Guy are good and sad memories-(Cry!) and (Sob)-of a Friendship and Love too beautiful and desperate to last! All Madonna Can do is Cry!
