Song Lyric Sunday – The Best

This week Jim Adams has prompted us with Cards, Dice, Gamble, Lose or Win for Song Lyric Sunday.

I must admit I changed my mind half a dozen times and was all set to go with a different song, but someone beat me to it! I went with Tina Turner’s ‘The Best’. It is a rousing, anthem-like song about finding the most amazing man ever and so she has won the jackpot!

It’s difficult to resist seeing the great Tina Turner in action so hope you enjoy the video. Have a great Sunday!

Lyrics

The Best
Tina Turner


I call you when I need you, my heart’s on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wired
Oh, you come to me, give me everything I need
 
Give me a life time of promises and a world of dreams
Speak the language of love like you know what it means
Mm, and it can’t be wrong, take my heart and make it strong, babe
You’re simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
I’m stuck on your heart, I 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
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long 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 ever met
I’m stuck on your heart, I 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, don’t let go
You’re the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
I’m stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby I would rather be dead
Oh you’re the best
