Chrisette Michele - Best Of Me Lyrics




Saw you again at the parlor
Crossing the walk with your lady
I caught your eye from afar off
I know that she wore a ring

I found a smile against my will
Wish it was genuine
I put away my desire
No more "in love with you still"

Look I'm moving on, oh

Loved you, lost you
Thought I'd give you
All the best of me
We departed
Broken hearted
I need to be free

What we had was
Oh so lovely
I'll swallow my pain
Its my time to
Find the best of me

Can't be the time to be begging
Can't be the time to plead
My momma made me much wiser
What's mine will be just for me

I'm trying hard just to focus
I'm trying hard to sleep
Promise I'm glad you're happy
When its my time it will be

Look I'm moving on, oh oh oh

Loved you, lost you
Thought I'd give you
All the best of me
We departed
Broken hearted
I need to be free

What we had was
Oh so lovely
I'll swallow my pain
Its my time to
Find the best of me

Oh my why have I been just so foolish all this time
Not realizing the beauty that your eyes once saw in mine
I guess its time to find the best of me

Loved you, lost you
Thought I'd give you
All the best of me
We departed
Broken hearted
I need to be free

What we had was
Oh so lovely
I'll swallow my pain
Its my time to
Find the best of me

Oh oh oh
The best of me

    Saw you again at the parlor

  31. Ivy N

    This song used to come on Vh1 in the mornings when it came out 11 years ago & I was 11 years old. I loved it so much it made me feel so nostalgic for a time and place that I never knew. I lost it for these 11 years but thought about it ALL THE TIME I didn’t know any lyrics or that this was Chrisette Michele so I thought I’d never hear it again. I heard it while grocery shopping yesterday and I started tearing up when I realized it was the song I’ve looked for for all these years. Yesterday i also got out of a five year relationship so now I’m listening to this & shedding tears lol. It came around at the perfect time and as a 22 yo who has experienced heartbreak it makes sense in a way that it never did to my 11 year old self. Thank you so so so much Chrisette Michele for making this magical music.
