I was so in love with you
There was nothing I could do
Wouldn't give me the time of day
Now you wanna be with me
You say you wanna be with me

You said I was the best
Gave your love out to the rest
There was nothing I could say
But now it's going good for me
You say you wanna be with me... now

And you're telling me that
I am where it's at
But I ain't havin' none of that...

Because I told you you'd live to regret it,
Now I don't wanna make you feel bad,
But when it comes to me just forget it,
I'll be the best you never had,
You put me through so many emotions,
Now baby it's your turn for that,
Cos in your empty heart I have left a mark,
The best you never had

No, No, No

You saw me as a friend,
Baby I don't want revenge,
But if you must know the truth,
What you didn't see in me
That's what you will never be - no,
When your telling me I always was the one,
I feel your desperation

Because I told you you'd live to regret it,
Now I don't wanna make you feel bad,
But when it comes to me just forget it,
I'll be the best you never had,
You put me through so many emotions,
Now baby it's your turn for that,
Cos in your empty heart I have left a mark,
The best you never had

Back rubs... Good love... My stuff
That's what you missed out on
My touch... so much we could have
You miss,
My kiss,
My lips,
The love I had for you
Also so long, baby don't it make you sad...

Because I told you you'd live to regret it,
Now I don't wanna make you feel bad,
But when it comes to me just forget it,
I'll be the best you never had,
You put me through so many emotions,
Now baby it's your turn for that,
Cos in your empty heart I have left a mark,
The best you never had

Because I told you you'd live to regret it,
Now I don't wanna make you feel bad,
But when it comes to me just forget it,
I'll be the best you never had,
You put me through so many emotions,
Now baby it's your turn for that,
Cos in your empty heart I have left a mark,
The best you never had

Well I will always be the best you never had

The best you never had

    this song is the best... i listen to it when i sleep. its probably her best song, its got a good melody, bleeding love was probably more catchy though. i hope her next single is this song.
    hardly anyone knows this song at school, when i sing it people have blank stares

    This song is sooo good en sexy.It means a situation when you have a lover whom you do not even listen to and blindy you get fooled by someone else.But later on after seein her success you wanna get back to her but no way you are regrettin.When she loved you you were not mindin,so u are regrettin ur actions.

    Great tuitroal hun, but i wouldn't recommend buying from hello gorgeous. The shipping takes anywhere from a month to 5 months! That's just ridiculous. And if something is wrong with your extensions, she won't even reply to your e-mails. She didn't to mine. But anyways. I have luxy hair extensions now and i'm more than happy! They are so thick and sexy. Shipping took 2 days! Could you maybe do a review on them?
