Song Description

Enduring sadness and getting by after a loss of a loved one.

Story Behind the Song

This is the story of my brother after his wife died. I used his experience as a basis for the song.

Lyrics

DOING THE BEST THAT I CAN
(Alice Olsen)

This house is too big for one broken heart
That's lonesome and feeling torn up
I see you everywhere from our bed to your chair
To your "have a nice day" coffee cup
And each one is a pain that reminds me again
Of how I'm so lost without you
I wish you were here to laugh at my fears
And tell me what I need to do

chorus:
So I'm planting the garden and plumbing the sink
Trying to keep busy so there's no time to think
Cause if I do, it will be about you
And that hurts more than I can stand
I'm just DOING THE BEST THAT I CAN

The day that you died was the worst in my life
There's no getting over that
Now I'm taking each day one step at a time
2 forward and sometimes 3 back
Without you everything's unfamiliar and new
I miss you at every turn
This life on my own, and being alone
It's a lesson that I hate to learn

(repeat chorus)

Bridge:
And I call up our friends or I go for a ride
Trying to escape what I feel deep inside
But you know that there's never a place I can hide
From the tears I never cried

(repeat chorus)

Tag:
They say time heal all things
I hope that's really true
For now I'm DOING THE BEST THAT I CAN
Learning to live without you.
