Live From Earth/ Pat Benatar

THE BEST

Writers: Holly Knight/ Mike Chapman

 

I call you when I need you

and my heart’s on fire

Come to me come to me wild and wired

You come to me

give me everything I need

You give me a lifetime of promises

and a world of dreams

You speak the language of love

like you know what it means

And it can’t be wrong

take my heart and make it strong babe

 

You’re simply the best

Better than all the rest

Better than anyone

Anyone I ever met

I’m stuck on your heart

I hang on every word you say

Tear us apart

baby I would rather be dead

 

In your heart I see the start

of every night and every day

In your eyes I get lost

I get washed away

Just as long as I’m here in your arms

I could be in no better place

 

You’re simply the best

Better than all the rest

Better than anyone

anyone I ever met

I’m stuck on your heart

I hang on every word you say

Tear us apart

baby I would rather be dead

 

Each time you leave me I start losing control

you’re walking away with my heart and my soul

I can feel you even when I’m alone

oh baby don’t let go

 

You’re simply the best,

Better than all the rest

Better than anyone

Anyone I ever met

I’m stuck on your heart

I hang on every word you say

Tear us apart

baby I would rather be dead

You’re the best

1. THE BEST
 

BE TENDER WITH ME BABY

Writers: Holly Knight/ Albert Hammond

 

You’ve got the right to tell me it’s all over

It isn’t like me to be begging you

Don’t let go, don’t let go

just stay with me another day

And when I’m not myself

please understand me

I’m so confused I don’t know what to do

but don’t give up, don’t give up

it just may take a little time

 

Be tender with me baby

I’m so afraid you’ll go away

Be tender with me baby

Always, always

 

I know that you’ve been patient

with my weakness

and that you hate to see me cry

but I know, yes I know

it doesn’t hurt to be this way

and I’m so lonely I could die

 

Be tender with me baby

I’m so afraid you’ll go away

Be tender with me baby

Always, always

 

Why does my heart keep on hurting

why do I feel, feel like I do

I hope you see this is

not really me

and it’s just a phase that I’m going through

Be tender with me baby …

 

Be tender with me baby

I’m so afraid you’ll go away

Be tender with me baby

Always, for always …always

 
Lyrics

2. BE TENDER WITH ME BABY
 

BETTER BE GOOD TO ME

Writers: Holly Knight/ Mike Chapman

 

A prisoner of your love

entangled in your web

hot whispers in the night

I’m captured by your spell

Oh yes I’m touched by this show of emotion

Should I be fractured by your lack of devotion

Should I should I

 

Oh you better be good to me

That’s how it’s gotta be now

Cause I don’t have no use

for what you losely call the truth

You better be good to me

 

And I think it’s oh so right

That we don’t need to fight

When we stand face to face

and you present your case

and I know you keep telling me that you love me

and I really do wanna believe

but did you think I’d just accept you in blind faith

Oh sure babe, anything to please you

 

But you better be good to me

That’s how it’s gotta be now

Cause I don’t have the time

For your over loaded lines

and I don’t have no use

for what you loosely call the truth

You better be good to me

 

And I really don’t see why it’s so hard to be

Good to me

And I don’t understand what’s your plan

that you can’t be good to me

What I can’t feel I surely cannot see why can’t you be

Good to me

If it is not real I do not wish to see why can’t you be

Good to me

Oh you better be good to me

That’s how it’s gotta be now

Cause I don’t have no use

for what you losely call the truth

You better be good to me
