The Lyrics

WAY PAST YOUR BEST

I've watched you and I've seen you, you've lost your fire.
You look down and out, down and out, you look tired.
Yes, you're down and out, you've got nothing left to give.
You had a lifetime of promises but just missed the mark,
Had the world at your feet but were kept in the dark.
And I'm sorry to say
That there is no other way, Dear

You're way past your best,
Lagging behind the rest.
Never going to win again,
No, never in a million years.
Well, the truth is it's done,
And I'm sorry it must be said,
It tears you apart I know,
But I don't want to see you dead.

For your part you have the heart in all you do each every day.
But now's the time you must heed to the things I say.
For you must know by now that the dreams that you had are a distant past.
You're way past your best,
Lagging behind the rest.
Never going to win again,
No, never in a million years.
Well, the truth is it's done,
And I'm sorry it must be said,
It tears you apart I know,
But I don't want to see you dead.

You truly think that you can still make the grade,
You're really stubborn and I know not afraid.
I can't tell you any more than I do,
I give up, but that's you.

Oh...dear...hmm...you're...past your best,
Lagging behind the rest,
Never going to win again,
No, never in a million years.
Well, the truth is it's done,
And I'm sorry that it must be said,
It tears you apart I know,
But I don't want to see you dead.

You're past your best!

Now there's a classic I haven't heard in a while. 555 for bringing it back, way past its prime.
