Best I Ever Had Lyrics


Melt Antarctica, savin' Africa
I failed algebra and I misused some times
We're at war again, save the world again
You can all join in, but you can't smoke inside

You said "Take me home, I can't stand this place
'Cause there's too many hipsters and I just can't relate"
You're my neon gypsy, my desert rain
You're my "Helter Skelter", oh how can I explain that

You're the Best I Ever Had
And I'm trying not to get stuck in my head
But I read that soda kills you and Jesus saves
On the bathroom wall where I saw your name
You're the best I ever had
I won't be the same

Night sky full of drones, this neighborhood of clones
I'm looking at the crowd and they're staring at their phones
They groom the coast line here, the sun will disappear (Oh God!)
And maybe once a year, I think they'll clean my car

Caught my reflection, drop the call
I've been medicated with cigarettes and alcohol
I got vertigo, no I can't see straight
I got obligations though I'm usually late but

You're the best I ever had
And I'm trying not to get stuck in my head
But I think I dropped my wallet in Santa Fe
Lost the only picture I had of you that day and
You're the best I ever had
I won't be the same

Hey West Virginia, hey North Dakota
I think I love you, but don't even know you
Hey Massachusetts, hey Minnesota
I think I love you, but don't even know you
Hey Carolina, hey Oklahoma
I think I love you, but don't even know you
Hey Alabama, hey California
I think I love you, but don't even know you

You're the best I ever had (you're the best I ever had)
And I'm trying not to get stuck in my head
But I passed the longest sign on the interstate
Saying "Find someone before it gets too late"
You're the best I ever had (you're the best I ever had)
I won't be the same

Hey West Virginia, hey North Dakota (Oh why, oh why)
I think I love you, but don't even know you (I won't be the same)
Hey Massachusetts, hey Minnesota (you're the best I ever had)
I think I love you, but don't even know you (I won't be the same)

Yeah, I won't be the same

Best I Ever Had
  • This tribute to life on the road was released as the lead single from Gavin DeGraw's fifth studio album. Co-written by the singer and Boys Like Girls frontman Martin Johnson (who also produced the track), the song moves to the rhythm of a brisk stomping beat. "I'm sitting in the room with Martin Johnson, the guy I'd been writing with before who's really gifted, and he's like, 'Hey man, what do you think of this track?'" DeGraw recalled to Billboard magazine. "He just starts playing this jangle-y, uptempo kind of thing, which ultimately was the foundation for 'Best I Ever Had.'" The song was released to radio and digital retailers on June 18, 2013.
  • The song's official music video finds McGraw getting close to the 2013 Miss USA titleholder, Erin Brady.
  • The song started as a crazy drum beat in the studio over which Johnson encouraged DeGraw to adopt a stream of consciousness approach for his vocals. He began to sing "Melt Antarctica, savin' Africa. I failed algebra" and Johnson added, "And I miss you sometimes." "I laughed because it was so off the wall, but at the same time that was the stroke that it needed," DeGraw told Radio.com . "The nature of the song, it almost didn't matter what we said. We had the freedom to say anything because the style and sound of the song, there's a bit of a beatnik Americana thing happening in there even though it's been modernized. It lets you be a little bit nutty as far as being a lyricist is concerned. It is very freeing."
