So you sailed away
Into a grey sky morning
Now I'm here to stay
Love can be so boring

Nothing's quite the same now
I just say your name now

Chorus
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You don't want me back
You're just the best I ever had

So you stole my world
Now I'm just a phony
Remembering the girl
Leaves me down and lonely

Send it in a letter
Make yourself feel better

Chorus
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You don't need me back
You're just the best I ever had

And it may take some time to
Patch me up inside
But I can't take it so i
Run away and hide
And I may find in time that
You were always right
You're always right

So you sailed away
Into a grey sky morning
Now I'm here to stay
Love can be so boring

What was it you wanted
Could it be I'm haunted

Chorus
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
I don't want you back
You're just the best I ever had
The best I ever had
The best I ever

    Gerald, you are the best thing I ever had. Maybe it wasn't really meant to be together, but those memories will remain in my heart. And I will miss you everyday. I already don't remember the bad things happen but all the good things remain and it was not so bad. I hope that one day, you can move on too. And I wont feel this feeling of longing for you, someday. And I hope my love for this new will be the same as my love for you before. Goodbye!

    Best i ever had goes by the name of marlene. I made a huge mistake and she went away. Now my world has crashed and i dont know how to get back up. To all of you who are in a relationship and you know that you're partner is really the one, dont fool around anymore and wait, settle down with that person as soon as u can. Do not break her heart, do not be so impulse. Because you will just be miserable in the end.

    Sam :) you're the best i ever had - my wildthang! It's clear the source of inspiration for these simple yet wonderful songs from vertical horizon has remained unchanged. This one in particular sings for itself.

    There are happy endings just not the ones we long for!
