Maria Daines ~ I've Lost The Best of You



'I've Lost the Best of You'  


He's gonna wait until she's through Still got time to give his all Thought she wanted what he did too She was his windfall Years went by and little clues Now she don't call to hear the news She's puts on her dancing shoes And he knows he's bound to lose He knows the sun will rise in blue The words are written in the morning dew He still loves her like he did brand new And he cries, I've lost the best of you Little hands in his heart Pulling the strings Clutching as he falls too far Lost and losing everything She found the jewels in sparkling eyes Took her suitcase to the coast Rode the train and cut the ties Left the one who loved her most And he won't change the way it was Sweet old eyes look to the hills Love don't have no rules, no laws Everybody got free will Little hands in his heart Pulling the strings Clutching as he falls too far Lost and losing everything He cries I tried and you did too Ain't no good thing I can do I know you wish you could be true But I've lost the best of you Little hands in his heart Pulling the strings Clutching as he falls too far Lost and losing everything He cries I tried and you did too Ain't no good thing I can do I know you wish you could be true But I've lost the best of you © Maria Daines/Paul Killington 30th June 2021
