Lyrics:

The Best of Us All

It's amazing someone could make so many mistakes, but you've shown me just how little it can take.
I'm almost speechless, you were fine just the other day, yet in ignorance you let it all slip away.
You were too proud; you turned everyone away.
Never listened to what they had to say.
And it's that pride that has you in this mess, but it's like you said, you were always the best.
You were the best of us all; you never needed anyone to tell you anything at all.
Oh, how the mighty can fall. Oh, how the mighty can fall.
Oh well.
You were the best of us all; you never needed anyone to tell you anything at all.
Oh, how the mighty can fall. Oh, how the mighty can fall.
Now you're scratching, and you're crawling.
Now you're reaching out for anything you can get.
And you're not so proud and you don't talk so loud, humility is not something that's you're best.
And when you start to rise, don't be surprised if you slip just a little every now and then.
It's called life and it's full of strife.
You were good, but you'll likely never be there again.
You were the best of us all; you never needed anyone to tell you anything at all.
Oh, how the mighty can fall. Oh, how the mighty can fall.
Oh well.
You were the best of us all; you never needed anyone to tell you anything at all.
Oh, how the mighty can fall. Oh, how the mighty can fall.
