Best I Never Had
The Downtown Fiction Lyrics


I knew you once
You never knew me then
Afraid to ever say, I wanted to be friends
And now the years have passed, you're far away
And suddenly I feel I'm not the same

The walls are breaking down
I think I'm crackin' up
I look around
Now everything's too much

And the world is spinnin' much too fast
Well I can hardly catch my breath and I just hope that this will last
The world is slippin' from my grasp
I'm looking 'round to find, the girl I left behind
You were the best I never had

Remember when
I saw you in the hall
You passed right by my stare, not noticing at all
And if I'd had the guts, I'd catch your glance
But I am just the boy without a chance

The walls are breaking down
I think I'm crackin' up
I look around
Now everything's too much

And the world is spinnin' much too fast
Well I can hardly catch my breath and I just hope that this will last
The world is slippin' from my grasp
I'm looking 'round to find, the girl I left behind
You were the best I never had

Since I saw them in concert yesterday I am obsessed with this song! Its sooo good! I went to see We the Kings and The Summer Set too... Lets just say after The Downtown Fiction I knew nobody could top them so I left to ride the rides at 6 Flags! BEST. CONCERT. EVER.

People are super rude. No one knows how to give respect. Let's see you write songs and actually be successful and stuff. They've come a long way! Seeing them in March btw. And I'll make sure they know I'm a dedicated and devoted fan. :)
