I sat down to play a chord or two
And try to find some words that I could sing for you
'Cause I'm all out of jokes, and you're still feeling blue
Oh, I'm afraid this is the best that I could do

I pretend that I don't have a clue
When I see every single thing he puts you through
Until I find the nerve to state my point of view
Well, I'm afraid this is the best that I can do

Child, don't you lose that sparkle
Let me set your spirit free
With a happy melody
And don't you waste another precious second
Wishing on a star
You don't have to look that far

This conversation's long overdue
I can see it in your eyes you feel it to
So, I would say it, but now my song is through
And I'm afraid this is the best that I could do
