I was made the wrong way
Won’t you do me the right way
Where you gonna be tonight
'Cause I won’t stay too long

Maybe you’re the life of me
When you talk to me it strikes me
Won’t somebody help me
'Cause I don’t feel too strong

Was it something that I said
Was it something that I did
Or the combination of both that did me in

You know I’m hoping you’ll sing along
Although it’s not your favorite song
Don’t want to be there when there’s nothing left to say

You know that some of us spin again
And when you do you need a friend
Don’t want to be there when there’s nothing left for me

And I hate the thought of finally being erased
But baby that’s the best of me

Everything’s behind you
But the hopeless signs beside you
I’m livin’ in the moment
Have I wasted all your time

Was it something that I said
Was it something that I did
Or the combination of both that did me in

You know I’m hoping you’ll sing along
Although it’s not your favorite song
Don’t want to be there when there’s nothing left to say

You know that some of us spin again
When you do you’ll need a friend
Don’t want to be there when there’s nothing left for me

And I hate the thought of finally being erased
But baby that’s the best of me
Baby that’s the best of me

You know I’m hoping you’ll sing along
Though it’s not your favorite song
Don’t want to be there when there’s nothing left to say

You know that some of us spin again
And when you do you’ll need a friend
Don’t want to be there when there’s nothing left for me

And I hate the thought of finally being erased
Baby that’s the best of me

    I think this song is talking about how when he's with his girl, he's on perfect behavior and showing the best of himself, Daniel Powter rocks...
