the best time
(music & lyrics: matthias hess)


here i am tonight
thinking Ďbout the times
being a child
itís just a few days ago

i remember when
i was without plans
no need to care
how to get along

i always thought thereís nothing better
but these artless times
paying no attention whether
i do wrong or right

it makes me cry late at night
i sigh whenever i think of days gone by
but i just canít deny
that right now is the best time

then i fell in love
being a teenager
i guess itís just
a few hours ago

never sure if these
peculiar changes please
somehow scared just
how to get along

i always thought thereís something better
but these confusing times
and i did not find out whether
i do wrong or right

it makes me cry late at night
i sigh whenever i think of days gone by
but i just canít deny
that right now is the best time

iím still young
i feel fine
donít mind how many years went by
iím alive tonight
and tonight is the best time

here i am alright
this is my best time
i was like a child
a few seconds ago
