you are the best thing lyrics – ray lamontagne

baby
it’s been a long day, baby
things ain’t been going my way
and now i need you here
to clear my mind all the time

and baby
the way you move me, it’s crazy
it’s like you see right through me
and make it easier
believe me, you don’t even have to try

[chorus]
oh, because
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing)
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing, baby)
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing, oooh)
ever happened to me

baby
we’ve come a long way
and baby
you know i hope and i pray
that you believe me
when i say this love will never fade away

[chorus]
oh, because
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing)
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing, baby)
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing, oooh)
ever happened to me

both of us had no love before
(to come on promising like a spring to walk on out the door)?
our words are strong and our hearts are kind
let me tell you just exactly what’s on my mind

[chorus x2]
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing)
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing, baby)
you are the best thing
(you’re the best thing, oooh)
ever happened to me
