Almost The Next Best Thing

I’m the one you almost heard about
Damn near made it to the top
Nearly nailed it so close I could taste it
And I almost didn’t stop

I’m the one you almost loved enough
Memories you almost won’t forget
On the verge of lasting us forever
Workin’ every day until it quit

And you’re my pretty much
My all but certain
We’ll almost take a bow
But then it’s curtains

I’ll be your not quite
And you can be my almost

Almost the queen and king
Almost a diamond ring
Almost the next best thing

Yeah I’m the one that almost got away
The one you almost saw comin’
Almost was the one until I came undone
I’ll walk you home and somehow wind up runnin’
