best of me lyrics – mercyme

best of me

why would i want to try and meet you halfway?
why would i back down when there’s still a fight in me?
why only give you what i hold in my hands?
why would i ever jump with nowhere to land?
and why surrender if i won’t go to my knees?

i won’t just give you the best of me
when you want, you want my everything

who am i to give you just the pretty things?
am i the same as the one who gives you nothing?
and what if nothing was what you chose to do
all because the cost was too much for you?
i can’t imagine where i would be

i won’t just give you the best of me
when you want, you want my everything
won’t you come and take what’s left
and while you’re here, take the rest
i won’t just give you the best of me

not just my heart
but my life too!
oh i belong, i belong
i belong to you!

i won’t just give you the best of me
when you want, you want my everything
won’t you come and take what’s left
and while you’re here, take the rest
i won’t just give you the best of me
