Lyrics

I met a man late(?) downtown
The rain was softly falling down
Over me

He said "I believe in Jesus Christ
But I still don't know my wrongs and my rights
In this lonely life.
This lonely life's
Not worth living at all
Not worth living at all"

So I gave him my last cigarette
And said
I said "This world ain't seen the best of you, yet"

I've had my friends and had my foes
I've cut some corners and God only knows
I've tried my best
(I tried my best!)

I've loved and lost and paid the cost
I faced my fears but still im lost
In this lonely night
This lonely night
When I went home without you
Oh I went home without you

Then I rang you on the telephone
And left a message at the tone
I said "This world ain't seen the best of you yet!"
I said "This world ain't seen the best of you yet!"

When I got home and sat alone
The darkness really set the tone
Over me

I know, I know, it's hard to tell
The things I find when I feel like hell
In this lonely light
This lonely light
Is fading without you
Always fading without you

And so I rang you on the telephone
And left a message at the tone
I said "This world ain't seen the best of you yet!"
I said "This world ain't seen the best of you yet!"
I said "This world ain't seen the best of you
World ain't seen the best of you
World ain't seen the best of you yet!"

When the world
It brings you down
Keep your head up high
And your feet on the ground 8x
