The Best Thing I’ve Never Done

Written by John Jackson

From the day we met, sparks have flown in the air

They could light the fire inside

But I won’t let them, no I won’t let them

I can tell by the touch of your words, and the smile in your eyes

You’d set everything aside

But I won’t let you, I can’t let you

I’m not a stranger to a one night stand, but

I know that guy…he won’t understand

After time for some careful reflection

I’ll steer my heart in a different direction

Please don’t take offense…your charm is second-to-none

Well I’m a long way from earning salvation

But I won’t give in to temptation

It’s never felt so right to end what hasn’t begun

It’s the best thing I’ve never done

There are times when it’s best to say what’s on your mind

But this one should be kept to yourself

Please don’t tell him, no please don’t tell him

I remember when he heard the same words from a truer love

There was nothing else he could think of

So please don’t say them, you must not say them

It took a very long time for him to try again

You know your best bet is with a man you can win, cause

After time for some careful reflection

I’ll steer my heart in a different direction

Please don’t take offense…your charm is second-to-none

Well I’m a long way from earning salvation

But I won’t give in to temptation

It’s never felt so right to end what hasn’t begun

When the grass seems greener on the other side

And your sunshine has turned to rain

Take a step back

Make sure you’re on the right track

Before you board another train

I know it’s hard to believe this is coming from me

I can hardly believe it myself

But I’ll do the right thing

This time I’ll do the right thing

After time for some careful reflection

I’ll steer my heart in a different direction

Please don’t take offense…your charm is second-to-none

Well I’m a long way from earning salvation

But I won’t give in to temptation

It’s never felt so right to end what hasn’t begun

It’s the best thing I’ve never done

(Ahhhhhh)

It’s the best thing I’ve never done

(Ahhhhhh)

It’s the best thing I’ve never done

(The best thing, the best thing, ooh)

(The best thing, the best thing, the best thing)

It’s the best thing I’ve never done
