the best of me lyrics – the darkness

the best of me

i get up (he gets up)
to see you wallow in defeat
i get down (he gets down)
with almost ev’rybody i meet except you
and i fail to see why i should care
that you have had thirty-six years of pain to share

did what i did what i did for you
you’ve got the best of me
did what i did for you
you’ve got the best of me

i get up (he gets up)
to see you look perpetually
i get down (he gets down)
to watch you fail spectactularly

oh boy
and i fail to see why i should care
that you have had thirty-seven years of pain to share

did what i did what i did for you
you’ve got the best of me
did what i did for you
you’ve got the best of me

did what i did what i did for you
you’ve got the best of me
did what i did for you
you’ve got the best of me

mamma mamma
