Style Council – You're The Best Thing lyrics

I could be discontent and chase the rainbows end
I might win much more but lose all that is mine
I could be a lot but I know I'm not
I'm content just with the riches that you bring
I might shoot to win and commit the sin
Of wanting more than I've already got
I could runaway but I'd rather stay
In the warmth of your smile lighting up my day
(the one that makes me say, heh)

'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me or my world
You're the best thing that ever happened - so don't go away

I might be a king and steal my peoples things
But I don't go for that power crazy way
All that I could rule but I don't check for fools
All that I need is to be left to live my way
(say listen what I say)

I could chase around for nothing to be found
But why look for something that is never there
I may get it wrong sometimes but I'll come back in style
For I realise your love means more than anything
(the song you make me sing - yeah)

    Things were getting hectic in the mid to late 8o's in nyc. Club people and such were dying and they were just discovering aids. No one really knew what was the cause, only it could be sexually transmitted. I was in my prime working the club scene ready to embark on my rise to the top. Was it the most important thing to me? S** was a tremendous lure and I could not ever give up that allure. Settling was not in my vocabulary. I met a woman and realized that sleeping around was sure to get me killed. The Clash and Jam were disbanding, and when I heard Paul Weller do this song I accepted that I didn't need to be King. That the love I shared with my now wife was all of the possession that I needed and I didn't need to prove anything to anyone. Only my Love and the love of my family and friends. This song will always have a special place in my heart and my life.
