You're the Best Thing About Me
by U2

Album: Songs of Experience (2017)
  • When you look so good, the pain in your face doesn't show
    When you look so good, baby, you don't even know
    When the world is ours but the world is not your kind of thing
    Full of shooting stars, brighter as they're vanishing
    Oh you've seen enough to know it's children who teach
    You're still free enough to wake up on a bed or a beach

    You're the best thing about me
    The best thing that ever happened a boy
    You're the best thing about me
    I'm the kind of trouble that you enjoy
    You're the best thing about me
    The best things are easy to destroy
    You're the best thing about me
    The best thing about me

    Why am I
    Why am I walking away?
    Why am I walking away?

    I'll be crying out, "How bad can a good time be?"
    Shooting off my mouth, that's another great thing about me
    I have everything but I feel like nothing at all
    There's no risky thing for a man who's determined to fall

    You're the best thing about me
    The best thing that ever happened a boy
    You're the best thing about me
    I'm the kind of trouble that you enjoy
    You're the best thing about me
    The best things are easy to destroy
    You're the best thing about me
    The best thing about me

    The best thing
    The best thing Writer/s: ADAM CLAYTON, DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN, PAUL DAVID HEWSON
