James Bay - The Best Lyrics

I call you when I need you
When your heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me
Wild and wired

You come to me
Give me everything I need

Give me a lifetime of promises
And a world of dreams
Speak the language of love
Like you know what it means

It can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong, baby

You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
Hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby, I would rather be dead

In your heart I see the start
Of every night and every day
And in your eyes I get lost
I get washed away

Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place

You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
Hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby, I would rather be dead

Each time you leave me I start losing control
You're walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I'm alone
Oh, baby

Oh oh, yeah
You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
Hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby, I would rather be dead
Oh, you're the best

  24. steven hayes

  25. Thomas Rakewell

    Like, great and everything, but I get the sense that when James Bay cums, it’s to the sound of his own voice.


    People must hate James Bay doing better versions of their songs.... Legend... Keep em coming...
