 Audio sample
This song was released as a single in 1981. In 1984 it reappeared on Cliff's 'Both Of Us' album. It is another song regarded by many as one of his best, and has been recorded by, or "covered" by - as the professionals say, no fewer than six other top artistes including Justin Haywood (of the Moody Blues), Judy Collins, Dana, Colin Blunstone, Patty Weaver, Charles Aznevour and a string of American performers.


The Best Is Yet To Come  

What did we do wrong?
We had all the magic to put us on our way
And all the tragedy that we ever wanna see
But you know I'm right
When I say the best is yet to come.

Where did we go wrong?
Was it so enlightening we couldn't find our way?
Was it all so frightening
        we really couldn't see which move to make?
But you know I'm right
When I say the best is yet to come.

And if you leave me now
Like you say you might
Oh please don't leave me now
'Cause I know, if you do
None of this will come true - so . .

Where do we go now?
Now your heart is achin' and leading you astray
And me I'm burnin' up, tryin' to get you to stay
'Cos you know I'm right
When I say the best is yet to come
And you know the best is still to come.
