Best Part

Blues Traveler



Well what do you know here we are again          
Been a long time I can't remember when          
Well I wrote another one and guess who it's for          
Don't mind if I'm embarrassed I can't take it anymore          
You know I travel the world but I don't go no place          
And I got you to blame and the smile on your face          
You know I look in your eyes I see a part of me there          
So excuse my directness, but I just don't care          

What I think I'm talking about is a last ditch chance
Don't care about the likelyhood or circumstance
It seems I'm still here and I'm waiting for you
And I've got no reason no time and an excellent view
Of your eyes in my head and it's killing me
But the possibilities are thrilling me
So I guess I'll sit right here with nothing better to do
And to top it all of you know the best part is          

I'm gonna let you on in on a big surprise
My heart is where the eagle flies
Yeah I'm the master of my destiny
That's why I need you right here with me
You see I've come to learn that without you around
I might as well be standing on the ground
And with you with me and with me with you
There's not a goddamn thing that we could not do

I'm not talking about us never being alone
I'm suggesting we make the world our home
You've got to fly free and so do I
And this we we'd never need to say goodbye
But instead things like "see you soon"
And "explore and play"
And "the one you love is not far away"
"But safe in your heart to see you thru"
And to top it all off you know the best part is that I

I'm gonna take you take you by the hand
You know even General Custer had to make a stand
I'll drop in from the skies or I'll move in slow
But there's so damn much that I want you to know
So take a look around you tell me what do you see?
Then take those eyes and take a look at me
You know you see things that others don't
So if you think I'll go away I won't

You see my engine's blown and it's time to punt
And there's an element of danger pulling off this stunt
But the survey says that I don't seem to mind
And you're the adventure that I'm trying to find
There's a whole lot of things that other people have said
But I don't care if I'm correct or if it's all in my head
So damn the torpedoes and cock a doodle-doo!
And to top it all off you know the best part is that I love you   

I'm singing I love you   
 Please, I'm down on my knees   
In the north and the south and the east and the west
Make it the very, very, very, very, very
 Best, best part
