The Nicest Thing Lyrics - Kate Nash

Review The Song (26)

All I know is that you're so nice
You're the nicest thing I've seen
I wish that we could give it a go
See if we could be something

I wish I was your favourite girl
I wish you thought I was the reason you are in the world
I wish my smile was your favourite kind of smile
I wish the way that I dressed was your favourite kind of style

I wish you couldn't figure me out
But you'd always wanna know what I was about
I wish you'd hold my hand
When I was upset
I wish you'd never forget
The look on my face when we first met

I wish you had a favourite beauty spot
That you loved secretly
'Cause it was on a hidden bit
That nobody else could see
Basically, I wish that you loved me
I wish that you needed me
I wish that you knew when I said two sugars,
Actually I meant three

I wish that without me your heart would break
I wish that without me you'd be spending the rest of your nights awake
I wish that without me you couldn't eat
I wish I was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep

Look, all I know is that you're the nicest thing I've ever seen
And I wish that we could see if we could be something
Yeah I wish that we could see if we could be something

Came across this song on Pandora while working and yep, it's now added to my "She Not He" mix. Emo, I know. But, seeing how unrequited love is a trend here... Everyone should also listen and add Marina & the Diamonds' song, "Starring Role" and the dreamy 70's song "I'm Not in Love" by 10cc to their respective sappy playlists. They're on mine and I can't deny that I have journaled and cried to them like a 12 year old. I'm 26. I just hope the guy I'm in love with can't hear me crying because he lives exactly next door to me! Lol. We've had an on and off almost 4 year no strings attached situation and I recently called it off after seeing him bring another girl home. WORST part of living next door to someone you're in love with who obviously doesn't feel the same! While I have dated and attempted short-lived relationships within the 4 year span; (what else was I supposed to do?) I've never stopped thinking about him. He's a single career-oriented 31 year old with an alcohol problem and a bald spot. I know, dreamboat! I've questioned my sanity as to why I've cried over him while listening to Kate Nash and 70's music. Truth is, I sometimes believe that you don't have control over who you love. And, I'm in love with a drunk, fantasy sports drafting, empty refrigerator keeping dude. Did I mention, while drunk obviously, he rustily plays Barry Mannilow and Christmas songs on his piano. Yup. And for whatever reason I'm not good enough for him to love.

This girl | Reviewer: Tanya | 9/9/12

I liked this girl for a long time. She was single. I was single too. But I took too long to pluck up enough courage to talk to her because by the time I did, she was already with someone else. She still spoke to me though, but out of respect for her new girlfriend, I stopped talking to her. And anyway, I found that I couldn't talk to her, knowing she wanted to be 'just friends' while I wanted something more from her.

If anyone out there ever starts liking somebody, hurry up and do something about it. Don't wait too long. Because she might be gone before you know it.

I wish.. | Reviewer: A | 8/23/12

Met my crush in high school, and became friends during that time..then we didn't see each other for like 6-7 years. Finally, we met again after so many years...and I still feel that little feeling inside when we see each other. But we can't be more than just "friends", because we live in different states and we have our own lives. And it sucks because I feel like he is the ONE for me. I like this part of the song- "I wish you'd never forget, The look on my face when we first met"....... "LOVE-why you have to be so complicated?"

Wow | Reviewer: dahlia | 2/8/12

This song is how I feel exactly. I'm in love with a guy, and he liked me for a while but I missed my chance and now he's with someone else. I just wish he loved me as much as I love him :''( why do so many of her songs seem to fit so perfectly with how I feel?

A friend mentioned this song. | Reviewer: gladys | 1/16/12

I told hime I was listening to Bobby Bare sing "Candle in the Wind" and he mentioned this song. Sounds like he and I are on the same page.
Isn't this exciting. So rare these days.

This song | Reviewer: S | 1/15/12

I'm with you guys. i got into a friends with benefits with a guy and this song reminds me of him because I started to wish he was mine and it hurt so much because I wanted to be tough and pretend that I didn't care about him but the truth is I did and I miss him and i hate to admit that but I do. I just wish he could look at me and feel something. I wish he couldn't take my eyes of me. I wish he loved me as much as I know he loved his ex of 7 years prior to me. I wish... I wish he just cared. just a tiny bit that I existed. but he doesnt. so I have to deal and live with that.

Sad song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/1/11

Every single line of this song is exactly how I feel. I started to get to know this boy last fall. I started to like him. I told him. He didn't feel the same way. But I've always thought he did. He always made it seem that way. Even after when he told me he didnt. Anyways, I haven't talked to him for about three months and for some reason I've been thinking about him. So I started listening to this song again. Yep.

Another Wish | Reviewer: Love, Dee | 4/11/11

I reading all of these, and it breaks my heart. "basically, i wish that": you all find the love you're looking for. none of us are hopeless. i know the feeling: i'm in love with my best friend too. but i know that the friendship matters most, so i'm laying my feelings down if and/or when he is ready for them, if he ever is. he is the "nicest thing". and i'm glad i know him <3

this song touches my heart | Reviewer: naomi | 1/27/11

this song brings tears to my eyes. i was sitting on the rooftop and the sun was streaming to my face. i had this song on repeat and it made me so emotional.

i wish she knew how i feel towards her.

<3 | Reviewer: Krista | 11/24/10

This is a lovely, poignant song.

Don't you think what you are wishing will cause the girl he is with now to feel the sadness and longing expressed in this song, feelings you yourself are probably feeling? Would you willingly inflict that on someone?

Song's amazing | Reviewer: shyeah | 10/11/10

Yeah. I think like everyone can relate to this song at one point in their life. i'm in love with a guy who lives 3 hours away and he's in love with me. but he has a girlfriend... i told him about this song. i also told him i wish he was mine. i hope he gets it sometime, haha

beautiful. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/13/10

my boyfriend and i recently broke up because of distance. we had been best friends for 6 years before we dated and now i miss him terribly. i need him in my life and i don't know if he still needs me...i dont know how to tell him. this song is exactly what i want.

why the friend | Reviewer: Bono | 8/24/10

This song really touched my heart.i fell in love with my friend which is my neighbor and we started dating now everything is down the drain. we can't see each other like friends anymore and i really regret it because i have lost his friendship. funny that we don't talk to each other but when we see each other w/different people we tell each other off, i guess we still have something there well at least i do. i miss him.
Thanks for the song

It helped me | Reviewer: aliiice.. | 4/3/10
