The Best I Can…

 

You can turn and walk away,

you can leave your dreams standing,

You look sad and tired and lonely

down and beat and feeling weak;

 

Yet all that sorrow never pleaded me

come and talk to me…

easy now, easy.

 

Take me, take my hand and don’t let go

never let it go, never let it go;

And even me, believe in me I’m crying.

 

I’ll say once more I am human and I just do the best I can

and I believe the sorrow’s dying;

Then we can be alive again,

and I can be there to the end

and I can be around tomorrow, yes tomorrow.

 

I can be your guiding light,

and when you walk the floor at night

I can help you find the answers.

And I can be your lifelong friend,

and I can be there to the end

and I will never go, no I will never go again.

 

Still you say goodbye to me

and I must go… crying all the way to dying,

all the way to dying.

And I would never leave you though

I would never hurt you so,

I would never take you from my mind.

 

I’ll say once more I am human and I just do the best I can

and I must make an end to sorrow;

and I can see what I must see,

and I must be what I must be

and I have strength that you can borrow.

 

And I can be your guiding light,

and when you walk the floor at night

I can help you find the answers;

And I can be your lifelong friend,

and I can be there to the end;

and I will never go, no i will never go again.

 

And when one day we look back in time

we’ll se the hill we had to climb,

and when one day we look back in time,

we’ll see the hill we climbed.
