Vanessa Carlton – My Best lyrics


We scream and shout and try to make it last
Though it didn't work out,
I don't love you any less
My lover or friend,
I wont ever tell
Our secrets safe
An unspoken citadel

And in these broken times, well,
It's so easy to forget
So I sing to remind
Upon my shoulder you can rest
Cause I'll always give you my best

A sidewalk's path leads me to you
Though we don't look back,
We hold on to a truth

And in these broken times
I promise I will not forget
Though you're not mine
Upon your shoulder I can rest
Cause you always give me your best

Like a promise kept
It's like you never left
It's like you never left

And though it's been so long,
I can't ever seem to forget
All it takes is a song
And I could swear I hear your steps
Down the hall echoes a past
Thatleaves an ache,
It's never left
Cause I gave you my best

It's like you never left
It's like you never left
We scream and shout and try to make it last
