Best That I Had

©2011 Lyrics & Music by Paul Thompson

Well I wish I was a boy again
When the worries of the world were so small
And the answers I was looking for
Could be found in a football, in a football

Still I searched for you in the church
But the walls were so cold and bare
And the God I thought I once knew there
Couldn’t be found anywhere, found anywhere

Well I looked for you in the city
Only found love in the wrong places
And the bright lights they were all white lies
Were never as clear as the stars, clear as the stars

Will you sing to me ’til I sleep?
Those sweet lullabies in the pines
Will you hold me ‘til the morning
And never say goodbye, say goodbye

But is this life only a dream?
Am I drifting away with the crowd?
A butterfly waiting for wings
Will I ever learn how to fly?

But if this life’s an illusion
Can you tell me then why it hurts?
Is it only me that feels this way
Is it something we all hide away?

Well I wish I was a boy again,
When the worries of the world were so small
And the answers I was looking for
Could be found in a football, in a football

Still it’s simple things I remember now
Just like waving to a train on the bridge
And then walking to the farm to buy fresh eggs
Going home to bake bread, to bake bread

But the answers never were easy
And I know I can never go back
Still it’s simple things I remember now
As being the best that I had, best that I had
