Foo Fighters - Best Of You


Foo Fighters - Best Of You - Meaning of the song


"Best of you" is about reaching your potential. Everyone has secrets they keep in their own head about themselves, and we rarely confront those secrets. It's a self reflecting song: "Is someone getting the best, the best, the best of you" could be interpreted as asking yourself a question you don't really want to think about.


This was one of five songs Foo Fighters played at the Live Earth concert held a Wembley Stadium in London on July 7, 2007. The concert was a benefit to support efforts to fight climate change. Foo Fighters, under orders by their manager to "be better than Metallica," delivered a rousing set that renewed interest in this song. The following week, the song was downloaded so many times that it re-entered the UK chart at #38.

Best of you - Lyrics

I've got another confession to make

I'm your fool

Everyone's got their chains to break

Holdin' you


Were you born to resist or be abused?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?


Are you gone and onto someone new?

I needed somewhere to hang my head

Without your noose

You gave me something that I didn't have

But had no use

I was too weak to give in

Too strong to lose

My heart is under arrest again

But I break loose

My head is giving me life or death

But I can't choose

I swear I'll never give in

I refuse


Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Has someone taken your faith?

It's real, the pain you feel

You trust, you must

Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Oh...


Oh...Oh...Oh...Oh...


Has someone taken your faith?

It's real, the pain you feel

The life, the love you'd die to heal

The hope that starts the broken hearts

You trust, you must

Confess


Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?


I've got another confession my friend

I'm no fool

I'm getting tired of starting again

Somewhere new


Were you born to resist or be abused?

I swear I'll never give in

I refuse


Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Has someone taken your faith?

It's real, the pain you feel

You trust, you must

Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Oh...
