Best Thing I Never Had Lyrics

What goes around comes back around (hey my baby)
What goes around comes back around (hey my baby)
What goes around comes back around (hey my baby)
What goes around comes back around baby

There was a time
I thought, that you did everything...

    Deciding to break up and move on from a relationship, while hard at first, can be the best thing to happen. While he may still be chasing her after she's broken up with him it is simply too late for him.

    Okay, let me starts from the beginning. She starts off by saying, that in the beginning, everything was good between her and her man. No lies came between them and everything seemed as if it was going great. And now she looks back at those time and realizes the little things that she never noticed at the time. But then he screwed up real big time and all those little things came together. She saw the monster that he was hiding behind that innocent looking face. And she is sooo thankful that things didnt get more serious with this guy, becuz it wud have rele sucked if she had not realized this until after marriage or something. Shes never going to make that mistake again about any other man. And it sucks for him, cuz he wants her back but its somehting that hes never gonna get. he may say alot of stuff that makes it seems like he cares, but she has already seen past that mask. Shes done crying for this jerk too, hes not even worth her tears. Hes so pathetic, that she doesnt even feel sorry for him. The she goes on by telling the guy: sorry bud. you hardcore blew your chances with me. There will never be a me and you in this life time. Bahahahah i love this song <3

    It marks the moving on from a love interest or relationship.

    She at one stage was so much in love with the guy that she thought he was perfect or overlooked any small imperfections.

    He slipped up in her eyes & she is grateful for this because it served to bring to light that a relationship with someone like him would not be good for her after all

    She is grateful for the incident cause it made her realise he was not strong enough or good enough to be with her

    It's about her being in a toxic relationship with a guy who didn't appreciate her/treat her right. She over looked so much because she loved him ,But eventually had enough of his B.S and decided to walk away and leave him. Realizing her self-worth and what she deserved. So even though it was hard for her at first it was worth it. Because now she is happy and is getting married to the man of her dreams. A guy who loves her and treats her with respect.So she is saying that she was the best thing her "ex" ever had and because of him screwing things up . She now found real love with this new man that she is marrying.

    It's about how when she loved a man she thougth he was perfect and she nearly gave him her whole heart, but before she could he slipped up and showed his true personality to her and when she realised that he wasn't good enough for her so she left him, however she still loved him and wanted him back but after she slowly relised that its better for them not to be togete.Still deep in the heart she loves him and maybe in another place and another time another world another life he'll love her right but shes happy that she was able to let go and say good bye

    I think that Beyonce was Dating this Guy! She loved him so Much'Best thing I ever had', but this Dude was playing her and she realised that before they took another step in their relationship(the part where they are at the party and he dances with another girl) Beyonce cared for this Guy so Much'Best thing you never had'!! And now Beyonce is Famous and is happily Married! Now it sucks to be that guy!!

    This song has been my mantra since choosing to end a relationship full of deceit, excuses and lies..all the times I forgave and let him in again he continued to show his ass until I realized enough is enough and i deserve much better than this treatment. As much as i tried to help him see a better way of life it was to no avail. So I had to let it go and as hurtful and painful as the process is in the long run I know I will never be the best thing he will ever have..now he has the left over trash ex girlfriend who is on the same level as he is..so yes it did turn out to be the best thing I never had. It takes a lot of strength and courage to make this kind of a decision and once this grieving process is over I know I will be so much better off and his loss will be the next mans gain. The song has become my daily mantra to get me through...thanks Beyonce it's as if you wrote this for my me.

    The "Best Thing I Never Had"....an eye opener realizing the "Best" would never be until the relationship is over, and he will forever know that she is the best he ever had.

    "you turned out to be the best thing i never had" - the best thing is, i didn't end up with you. "and i will always be the best thing you never had" - i'm the best but sorry, bye.

    She is saying "the best thing I never had". Cause she doesn't have him and doesn't want him. It's the best thing for HER, that she doesn't have him.

    It's about being with a guy, nearly falling head over heels for him, he messes up so you walk away and feeling bad initially... Then he regrets it and it's too late for him to get you back. Be thankful... The girl's the best thing this guy never had :)

    she was falling for the guy but then the guy slipped and messed up so she was talking about being thankful for not giving every part of her heart to the guy just for it to be stomped on by him later on. And that's she's doing fine without the guy and it's his lost, not hers. :)

    It's about seeing an unrequited love for who the really are and being thankful nothing ever happened between them.
