Sam Tsui Next Best Thing Lyrics

Last updated: 08/20/2014 06:14:47 AM

Once upon a time I would have
Moved a mountain just to know
That I was on your mind at all
They say love can make you blind
You had me wrapped around your pinky finger
Waiting for your midnight call
I was never the first pick,
But you knew I'd wait for you every time
But now I see that I was never gonna be your Mr. Right
Just Mr. Right next in line

I don't want to be the next best thing
I ain't gonna be your safety net
Baby, if I'm not the one you want
I don't wanna be the one you get
We could be a symphony, but I'm always second string
So baby if you're lonely tonight
It's time to find yourself another next best thing
Another best next thing

I've been getting used to all this elevator music
That you play me while I wait on hold
Guess you're on the other line,
And though I let you take your time
This waiting game is getting old
Always looking over your shoulder
Just in case something better comes by
Still hoping for the day when I'll be
More than second place
Is just a waste of my precious time

I don't want to be the next best thing
I ain't gonna be your safety net
Baby, if I'm not the one you want
I don't wanna be the one you get
We could be a symphony, but I'm always second string
So baby if you're lonely tonight
It's time to find yourself another next best thing

I could be all you need
But you treat me like I'm nothing at all
So when his love falls through
Find another fool to call, oh

II don't want to be the next best thing
I ain't gonna be your safety net
Baby, if I'm not the one you want
I don't wanna be the one you get
The one you get

No I won't be your safety net
Baby, if I'm not the one you want
I don't wanna be the one you get
We could be a symphony, but I'm always second string
So baby if you're lonely tonight
It's time to find yourself another next best thing
