“You Are The Best Thing”
By Ray LaMontagne & Danny Holland

Baby
It’s been a long day, baby
Things ain’t been going my way
You now I need you here
You 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

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, ooh)
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

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, ooh)
Ever happened to me


Both of us have known love before
To come on up 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

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, ooh)
Ever happened to me
You are the best thing
