The Best Damn Thing

You’re the best damn thing and I’m the lucky one

Gave you a reason to walk out on me that night
And go looking for Mr Right
Cos I sure looked like Mr Wrong
A deer in the headlights

I stood there and lied made a ghost town of part of you
Sat there and cried while I shut down the heart of you
Couldn’t decide if the end was the start of you
I shut my mouth and waited
In the mess that I’d created

Write your name in the sky for the world to see
“cause you’re the best damn thing that ever happened to me
We’re still standing now you didn’t cut and run, ooh
I was crying on the beach by the raging sea
Jus ta small town broken-down refugee
Holier-than-thou, I caused the damage done
You’re the best damn thing and I’m the lucky one

My mad season as vain as a barroom light
Remote as a satellite
I was out of touch and out of time
Too long in the spotlight

So incomplete that I burned something beautiful
Out of the street I was walking delusional
Your body heat moved something immovable
I closed my eyes and prayed yeah
From the mess that I had made

Write your name in the sky of the world to see
‘Cause you’re the best damn thing that ever happened to me
We’re still standing now you didn’t cut and run, ooh
I was crying on the beach at the raging sea
A broken down battleground refugee
Holier-than-thou I caused the damage done
You’re the best damn thing and I’m the lucky one

I’m the lucky one, I’m the lucky one, I’m the lucky one

I know that it hurt and ‘Sorry’ don’t even do it
Short pleated skirt and I jumped yeah I know I blew it
Threw me a lifeline I’m sticking like glue to it
Held my breath and waited
From the mess that I’d created

Gonna write your name, Gonna write your name,
Gonna write your name, Gonna write your name

Write your name in the sky for the world to see
‘Cause you’re the best damn thing that ever happened to me
We’re still standing now you didn’t cut and run, ooh
I was crying on the beach b the raging sea
Just a small town broken down refugee
Holier-than-thou I caused the damage done
You’re the best damn thing and I’m the lucky one.
