THE BEST WE CAN
Music and lyrics by Elizabeth Bernard
Copyright Elizabeth Scott (Bernard)

VERSE
Friday night you pulled into town.
Everything was so easy.
What we?d lost we had almost found,
And you were ready to please me.
I?ll have to say, I don?t know what I wanted,
But I sure know what I got.
Nothing like the joy of a loving heart.
Only all the pain tearing us apart.

VERSE
Face is green in the neon light.
Baby, where are you going?
Heading out on the freeway tonight,
Where the salt wind is blowing.

CHORUS
Can?t we take a ride ?til the sun comes up,
With the wind blowing through our hair.
Nothing like the smell of the ocean air.
Darlin?, don?t you leave me here.
Could have told the truth but I had to lie.
Don?t you ask me how, don?t you ask me why.
Sometimes we just do the best we can.
We do the best we can.

VERSE
If you want me I?m always yours.
Darlin?, you can believe me.
But when you are so far away,
All my passion deceives me.
First I stumble, and then I fall
Into some other movie.
Why do I have to be the star?
My sweet baby, come to me.

CHORUS
Can?t we take a ride ?til the sun comes up,
With the wind blowing through our hair.
Nothing like the smell of the ocean air.
Darlin?, don?t you leave me here.
Could have told the truth but I had to lie.
Don?t you ask me how, don?t you ask me why.
Sometimes we just do the best we can.
We do the best we can.
