Because You Got the Best of Me


United States

You got the best of me

When a stream of tears rains down my face

Or when my mind is a blank space

Of a never ending sea


You hold me tight

Your mouth curled in a smile

As you tell me sweet nothings into the night

My heart spinning like a dial


Your warm hands clasped against mine

Give me the security I need

Sending shivers up my spine

Never making me bleed


My eyes stare into yours

Hoping you can understand how important you are to me

My vision blurs

Because you got the best of me
