The Best Thing You Ever Had

This song is by Candi Staton and appears on the album Candi Staton (1972).

I hope you are happy
With your new love
I hope she brings you joy
Into your world
But just leave on baby
Time is gonna prove
I was the best thing you ever had
I know I was

I don't hold
Nothing against you
For you to destroy my mind
Take my whole life too

But leave on baby (time is gonna prove)
Time is gonna prove
I was the best thing you ever had
(Yes I was the best thing you ever had)
I know I was

How many tears have to fall?
Oh lord I don't believe you have no heart at all
How many hearts must be broken in two?
For your conscience starts working on you

I suffered, I suffered so long
You get your pleasure out of doing me wrong
But leave, leave, leave, leave (time is gonna prove)
Time is gonna prove (I was the best thing)
The best thing, the best thing you ever had
Ooh

Live on baby
I just want you to live on (live on baby, baby live on)
You live on baby
I want you to live on (live on baby, baby live on)
Leave on baby (time is gonna prove)
Time is gonna prove (I was the best thing) you ever had
(Yes I was the best thing you ever had)
I know I was Ooh

You made me suffer, so I want you to live on (live on baby, baby live on)
You made me stay home all night long (live on baby, baby live on)
So I want you to live on I want you to live on baby (time is gonna prove)
Time is gonna prove I was the best thing you ever had
Yes I was the best thing you ever had
