The Lyrics Breakdown

If anyone should ever write my life story
For whatever reason there might be
You’d be there between each line of pain and glory
‘Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me
You’re the best thing that ever happened to me

“You’re the Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me” is one profound love song from its narrator’s perspective. He tells about the pain and agony he felt the moment he remembered his beloved. That said, it isn’t hard for us to relate with this track because we’ve all experienced heartaches.
