Doing The Best That I Can

Drum Machine Demo

It was one for you
It was three for me
It was very nice
It was you and me
So here it is
In little pieces

She says “sometimes it’s hard”
And I never liked changes
Oh…
But you changed your mind
Then you changed it all around again
“It’s just like a game”, she says
Then you changed your mind
“Well, it’s just a game”, she says
And the clock is unwinding

Prepare for her departure
Well she’s always leaving
The priorities are ancient
Well, they say she’s always down with the brokenhearted
…are ancient
Well they say she’s always down…
With the brokenhearted
He says “oh, I hear you’re doing fine”
“And you’re doing it the best that you can”
Says, I hear you’re fine
And you’re doing it the best that you can

Made of the finest silk
She made her final plan
She said nothing
She’d go up the hill and come down again

And the whispered secrets
They go on and on
If you say anything…to anyone
She says “sometimes it’s hard”
And I never liked changes
So you change your mind
Then you change it all around again
She says it’s just…like a game
She says “I like to go fast”
He says, “No, you like to win’
“Save me a place”, she says
Racing with the wind
She says, “sometimes it’s hard, and I…”
“Never liked changing”
“Save me a place”, she says
Race with the wind
He says, “oh, I hear you’re doing fine, and you’re”
“doing the best that you can”
Says, “Oh, I hear you’re fine”
“And you’re doing the best that you can”

 

Alternate Piano Version from UK TV

It was one for you
It was three for me
It was very nice
It was everything
So here it is
In little pieces…

I didn’t win or lose
I just threw the cards
But I paid a price for it, and
It’s alright baby
I’m doing the best that I can

And the whispered secrets
They go on and on
No one says anything to anyone
You watch after her
And your word is law
She thought she was out there
And nobody saw
I didn’t win or lose
I just played the part
But I paid a price for it

It’s alright baby
I’m doing the best that I can
Ah ah…
Ooh, it’s alright baby
I’m doing the best that I can

I was silent
I was locked away
Silent all day…
It’s out of my hands here

In my distress
Well, I wanted someone to blame me…
In my devastation
Well, I wanted so to change….
In my way…
Disaster was the only thing that I could depend on

But it’s alright baby
I’m doing the best that I can
It’s alright baby
I’m doing the best that I can
And I’m trying hard to change
I’m doing it the best that I can
Ooh, he says
I hear you’re doing fine
And you’re doing the best that you can
Oh…
I hear you’re doing fine
And you’re doing the best that you can
He says, “Well…”
I hear you’re doing fine, and you’re
Doing it the best that you…can
