Conway Twitty – You're The Best I've Never Had lyrics

At seventeen, in faded jeans
I was yours, and you were mine
Close enough to call it love
But, we never crossed the line.

After knowing you, love's been nothing new
I've had it good, and I've had it bad
But, after all these years, you still bring the tears
You're the best I never had.

A perfect start for virgin hearts
But, it ended all so fast
Old enough to have been the first
But, too young to make it last.

I never let it show, ah, I should've let you know
I never wanted someone so bad
Lookin' back, I've learned, with every bridge I've burned
You're the best I never had.

The flame is gone, but the fire burns on
Sometimes sweet, and sometimes sad
Girl, you'll always be a haunting mystery
You're the best I never had.

And, after all these years, you still bring the tears
You're the best I never had...
