Best of You

lyrics

Over in the corner
Like an old barstool
He held me up
Right when I needed him to

He said “Listen up my friend
Let me tell you what I know
You can wish you were someone else
Then you gotta let it go

Cause that’s a good way
To get a bad start
I don’t care what straw you drew
You gotta let it make the best of you

We ain't playing a game
We ain’t running a race
It’s a way of life, boy
You just gotta find your place

I used to be like you
Would sit here in the dark
Watch ‘em in the spotlight
And pick myself apart

But that’s a good way
To get a bad start
I don’t care what straw you drew
You gotta let it make the best of you

You don’t need
To bring down the house
If you can bring ‘em inside
When they bring down the lights”

Then the room went dark
I could barely see his face
Picked up his old Martin box
Ready for the stage

He said “Let me ask you this
Whatcha gonna do?
Will you pick yourself up
Or find a crack to fall through?

Cause that’s a good way
To get a bad start
I don’t care what straw you drew
You gotta let it make the best of you

You don’t need a good way
To get a bad start
I don’t care what straw you drew
You gotta let it make the best of you"
