Beyoncé – Best Thing I Never Had lyrics

What goes around comes back around (hey my baby)
What goes around comes back around (hey my baby)
What goes around comes back around (hey my baby)
What goes around comes back around (hey my baby)

There was a time
I thought, that you did everything right
No lies, no wrong
Boy I, must've been outta my mind
So when I think of the time that I almost loved you
You showed your ass and I, I saw the real you

Thank God you blew it
Thank God I dodged the bullet
I'm so over you
So baby good lookin' out

[Chorus:]

I wanted you bad
I'm so through with that
Cuz honestly you turned out to be the best thing I never had
You turned out to be the best thing I never had
And I'm gon' always be the best thing you never had
I bet it sucks to be you right now

So sad, you're hurt
Boo hoo, oh, did you expect me to care?
You don't deserve my tears
I guess that's why they ain't there
To think that there was a time that I almost loved you
You showed your ass and baby yes I saw the real you

Thank God you blew it
Thank God I dodged the bullet
I'm so over you
Baby good lookin' out

[Chorus:]

I wanted you bad
I'm so through with that
Cuz honestly you turned out to be the best thing I never had
I said, you turned out to be the best thing I never had
And I'll never be the best thing you never had
Oh baby I bet sucks to be you right now

I know you want me back
It's time to face the facts
That I'm the one that's got away
Lord knows that it would take another place, another time, another world, another life
Thank God I found the good in goodbye

[Chorus:]

I used to want you so bad
I'm so through that
Cuz honestly you turned out to be the best thing I never had
You turned out to be the best thing I never had
And I will always be the, best thing you never had.
Best thing you never had!

I used to want you so bad
I'm so through it that
Cause honestly you turned out to be the best thing I never had
Oh you turned out to be the best thing I never had
Oh I will never be the best thing you never had
Oh baby, I bet it sucks to be you right now

Goes around, comes back around
Goes around, comes back around
Bet it sucks to be you right now
Goes around, comes back around
Bet it sucks to be you right now
Goes around, comes back around
Bet it sucks to be you right now

    Best Thing I Never Had has all the words that exlained behind closed doors with me and my ex. I almost loved him and everything and I'm so happy that I didn't because he just Really showed his a* and he still has a broken pieces of my heart but I cn b easily replaced iyt only a piece. This song has every word I can think of that comes in my mind. I'm so in like with it sooo much. :).

    She loved a man but the man that she loved does not deserve her. And after their break-up, she's implying that she had already overcome the pain and that it never hurts anymore. And the last thing that she is implying is that it's good to be free from the man who doesn't love her completely.
    That's my own opinion about the meaning of this song. It's a good breakup song. : '))

    This song rocks! I sing it to the top of my lungs, every time I hear it! I have been in a relationship the last year. I have waited to feel the love he claims he has for me, and just as I think things are looking up, he does something that brings me back to reality. The last thing I heard from him he said "i'm in love with you, and i ran to preserve the feelings i have for you". That's caca! You let me go, and you will remember as the one that got away. Take your selfish, preserved feelings and shove it! :}

    I think that the meaning to this song is that someone she thought would be the best thing she ever thought she would find and it turned out to be all wrong. Something she never thought would turn out like the way he did. ! She's actually happy to say goodbye. Quote " thank god i found the g o o d in g o o dbye i use to want you so bad " now I can live my life free and live and be happy w I t h o you t you. !

    For me, it means, saving my self from someone who is not deserving for me. It's like letting go the "worst man" as the best thing I did in my life. Then later on, he realized my worth, he wants me back but I've also realized that my life would be better without him. So, karma comes to him ;)? Ahahaah. I dedicate this song to my ex-bf. I love it a lot!
