Style Council YOU'RE THE BEST THING Lyrics

Last updated: 04/17/2011 11:00:00 AM

I could be discontent and chase the rainbows end
I might win much more but lose all that is mine
I could be a lot but I know I'm not
I'm content just with the riches that you bring
I might shoot to win and commit the sin
Of wanting more than I've already got
I could runaway but I'd rather stay
In the warmth of your smile lighting up my day
(the one that makes me say, heh)

'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me or my world
You're the best thing that ever happened - so don't go away

I might be a king and steal my peoples things
But I don't go for that power crazy way
All that I could rule but I don't check for fools
All that I need is to be left to live my way
(say listen what I say)

I could chase around for nothing to be found
But why look for something that is never there
I may get it wrong sometimes but I'll come back in style
For I realise your love means more than anything
(the song you make me sing - yeah)

Love and Life and A Jazzy Britfunk Break-up Song | Reviewer: Lionel D de Lillie | 4/17/11

Although many may say that they prefer the politico-punk of the Jam or the agit-pop of songs like Money Go Round or even the later mid-life Wildwood-era Paul Weller, we were all once in love. This song, along with the Jam's Bitterest Pill and Matt Bianco's More Than I Can Bear reminds me of when heartache and break-up could be summarised in song.
I'm glad I'm now 46 and not that gushy 22 year old any more. Paul is my hero. Great song. BTW we love him here in South Africa.

You're the best thing | Reviewer: ZANDRA | 2/17/10

This song is one of the most popular songs of Style Council during the 80's and is still being played on the airwaves. Great group and their music is one-of-a-kind. Pretty much unique. Jazzy with a little pop and RnB. I wish they were still active up to this date. I'm dedicating this song to my Best Friend and my love because Steve West is truly the best thing that ever happened to me!
