Happy Birthday Ms Turner – You’re still simply “The Best”.

“The Best”
Lyrics by Holly Knight and Mike Chapman.

I call you when I need you, when my heart’s on fire.
You come to me, come to me, wild and wired.
When you come to me give me everything I need.
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams.
Speak the language of love, like you know what it means,
And it can’t be wrong, take my heart and make it strong, baby,
You’re simply the best, better than all the rest,
Better than anyone, anyone I’ve 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 as I’m 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’ve ever met.
I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say.
Tear us apart, no, no, no, 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’ve ever met.
I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say.
Tear us apart, no, no, baby, I would rather be dead.
Oh you’re the best.

END
