Best Bit

(Beth Orton)

Chords

Follow E D pattern throughout


From my soul I found some pride
I only found this after she died
From a moment I acquired such grace
Everybody seemed to want to take her place

The best things in life were dreams
The best things in life it seems
The best part to breaking up
Is when you're waking up to me

Reality never lives up to all as it used to seem
Never seemed quite what it used to mean
All that it used to seem
All that it used to mean
All that it used to mean
All that it used to seem

Wasn't sure it was never quite clear
What the hell was happening all around here
Never seemed to make much sense
All that fuss for just a little common sense

The best things in life were dreams
The best things in life it seems
The best part to breaking up
Is when you're waking up to me

Reality never lived up to quite as it used
to seem
Never seemed all that it used to mean
Never seemed quite as it used to seem
All that it used to mean
All that it used to mean
All that it used to seem
All that it used to seem
All that it used to mean
All that it used to mean

New Version

From my soul I found some pride
I only found this after she died
From a moment I acquired such grace
Everybody seemed to want to take her place

The best parts in life it seems
The best part of life was a dream
The best part to breaking up
Is when I'm waking up to see

Reality never lives up to all that it used to be
Never seemed quite what it used to seem

Wasn't sure it was never quite clear
What the hell was happening all around here
Never seemed to make much sense
All that fuss for just a lack of common sense

The best parts in life it seems
The best part of life was a dream
The best part to breaking up
Is when I'm waking up to see

Reality never lives up to all that it used to be
Never seemed quite as it used to seem
Cannot be all that it used to be
Your not as quiet as you used to be

From my soul I found some pride
I only found this after she died
From a moment I acquired such taste
Everybody seemed to want to take her place

The best parts to life it seems
The best part of life was a dream
The best part to waking up
Is when I'm breaking up to see

Reality never lives up to all that it used to be
Never seemed quite what it used to seem
Cannot be all that it used to be
Your not as quiet as you used to seem
And what did you seem
What did you mean
