lyrics

The Best Things In Life

I went to the carwash where we first met
And I tried to get my car clean by that dirt just wouldn’t lift
Like your hands in the harvest from working in the soil
They’re both bound to get clean but I couldn’t help but feel

The best things in life, no, they don’t come for free
There’s always a cost to pay for good memories
Always a weight to bear with heavy hearts
Always a sacrifice for the best things in life

I walked the streets where we first started talking
I was dreaming of waters to the east
Little did I know then how that’d change things
Just another cost to carry on with me

The best things in life, no, they don’t come for free
There’s always a cost to pay for good memories
Always a weight to bear with heavy hearts
Always a sacrifice for the best things in life

Waking up early just to meet your eyes
Or standing by the kitchen sink watching the sun rise
Showing me your favourite place underneath the stars
Oh it’s always the little things that tend to break my heart

I guess all I’m saying is that car never came clean
It kept holding on to all that dirt like old memories
I know they say the other side is always more green
But I can’t help to thinking where we could have been

The best things in life, no, they don’t come for free
There’s always a cost to pay for good memories
Always a weight to bear with heavy hearts
Always a sacrifice for the best things in life
Always a cost to pay for everything in life
