Best Thing

words and music written by Ez Jon Erikson and Julian Flindle copyright control 1995

Descend the morning train, another normal working day
Stop off for a bite to eat at a diner on the way
I view faceless expressions
Melancholy numbers in life's game
And I think to myself the roles the people play
Many employed securely routined
Dream of ambitions they never achieved
The accomplished concerned with complex heartache
A normal life they wish to lead
Romantic dreams of eternal youth
To live the endless Saturday night
Make you disregard ultimate happiness
But it can be too late when you see the light
You are the best thing that's ever happened to me
Oh girl, the best thing, a loving fantasy
I really love you, I really need you
You are the best thing that's happened to me
Caught in a world of self importance
Goals hungered for achieved at all costs
Superficial, shallow, insincere, no feeling
Essence of spirit inside now lost
Young and naive when love's just a game
Rejection of security
Strip illusion an empty pain inside
Craves for love and sensitivity
