Better Than Him

Story Behind The Song

Just started writing it... don't know where it came from but it was another 15 min tune. I think I revised it a couple times. I would imagine most reviewers would say it needs a bridge but that would change the flow of the song. This one is a real croud pleaser! The dance floor is always packed when I play it live and it's just in your face. One of my most requested songs believe it or not.

Lyrics

Better Than Him (The Best Man)
©2003 Forrest Lee Jr.

Verse 1
I spend more time thinking about what might have been
Than I ever did when we had the chance to be more than friends
Now I?m looking back, and you?re looking forward to you?re wedding day
You want me to be the best man, well this is all I can say

Chorus
I?m better than him, guess that makes me the best man
I don?t wanna be friends, I wanna be a lot more than that
And he could take my place, And sit there with your dad
As we go through our vows and I slip that diamond on you?re hand
Then turn around and tell him what a great friend that he?s been
But I?m better than him

Verse 2
I see that what I said has caught you by surprise
I just hope it?s not too late to change your mind.
I think you?d make a big mistake if you married him
And you know that old saying, the best man always wins

Chorus
Well I?m better than him, guess that makes me the best man
I don?t wanna be friends, I wanna be a lot more than that
And he could take my place, And sit there with your dad
As we go through our vows and I slip that diamond on you?re hand
Then turn around and tell him what a great friend that he?s been
But I?m better than him

Solo

Chorus
Yeah I?m better than him, guess that makes me the best man
I don?t wanna be friends, I wanna be a lot more than that
And he could take my place, And sit there with your dad
As we go through our vows and I slip that diamond on you?re hand
Then turn around and tell him what a great friend that he?s been
But I?m better than him
