No One Gets The Best Of Me Lyrics - The Velvet Teen

Review The Song (0)



a fallen eyelash might grant my wish
but what more could i ask for
i have the sight of your face when i wake up
and before we fall asleep
i hear the voice of an angel
calling me her true love
they say the rules for fools who rush in
are the same as russian roulette
life, if you choose an empty chamber
or a bullet in the head
and you can say that you won't play
or go shoot something else instead
either way, the last thought that you think
will be the first that you forget
but lest the fear of your own life
cause you to live like you'd met death
know love while you still can, fill your lungs
let me hear your quickened breath
sing like you were suicidal
tremble atop the treble clef
to hell with this life, if without
love, let your eyes roll back to heaven

and with such ease we'll shun these needless trepidations
senses suspended as the second hand lingers
from our ocean, as we name every constellation
with the sounds that we make that escape the restraints of words
some will say it's all inside our heads
some say they've seen the light so you'll continue chasing their silhouette
so point the finger at whom you like
or raise your head and curse the sky
it makes no difference
that's why i never could decide
between you and me, girl
you know i'll never choose a side
it's just you and me, girl
just you and me

i had a debt with the devil
bet him that i could drink him under the table
with shots of holy water
jameson's and jack daniel's
and he said, as we poison our livers
let us drink unto your health
no one gets the best of me
i keep that part to myself
and if i dream so many sweet dreams
my brain burns itself a cavity
or if my posture's compromised
by more than time's IV drip gravity
i will say that i once had
while others moan they still don't have any
and i will get it all back again
in the next cycle of my depravity
cos my poverty means nothing
when death's writing its blank checks to me
and though i could drive off this cliff
or wish my name had been vasectomy
life's an accident others slow down
and vainly strain their necks to see
while i push my pedal to the ground
and fly past them all in ecstasy
yeah, some say that this life ain't the only one we get
i once claimed that i'd found myself when i'd only been chasing my own silhouette

so point the finger at whom you like
or raise your head and curse the sky
it makes no difference
that's why i never could decide
between you and me, girl
you know i'll never choose a side
it's just you and me, girl
just you and me
i could never love any other
no one could ever take your place
and we may be different people
but i give you every piece of me
so if you traded my love in search of more
someone might remain to fill up space
but there'd be nothing left
we are one
