Every night I'm lyin' in bed
Holdin' you close in my dreams
Thinkin' about all the things that we said
And comin' apart at the seams

We tried to talk it over
But the words come out too rough

I know you were tryin'
To give me the best of your love

Beautiful faces
And loud empty places
Look at the way that we live

Wastin' our time
On cheap talk and wine
Left us so little to give

That same old crowd
Was like a cold dark cloud
That we could never rise above

But here in my heart
I give you the best of my love

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love (You get the best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love (You get the best of my love)

I'm goin' back in time
And it's a sweet dream

It was a quiet night
And I would be alright
If I could go on sleeping

But every mornin'
I wake up and worry
What's gonna happen today?

You see it your way
And I see it mine
But we both see it slippin' away

You know we always had each other, baby
I guess that wasn't enough oh, ooh, whoa

But here in my heart
I give you the best of my love

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love (The best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love (The best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love (The best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin'
Every night and day
You get the best of my love (The best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin' oo-oo-oo-oo oo-oh
You get the best of my love (The best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love (The best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love (The best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin' mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
You get the best of my love (The best of my love)

Oh, whoa, oh sweet darlin' you got it
You get the best of my love (fade)

    I think the words in the song to me and my husbands it means they we are trying to not let it slip away. That we are in such a bad place and we just want to be back in a good place. It explains our early relationship so clear until we had kids and we've had to rise above and I have had to grow up. He hasn't. But I'm not willing to let go yet. I'll go down kicking and screaming.
