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 just played the part I didn't win or lose
Maybe next time I'll think about how I'm feeling
"cause I'm doing the best that I can
And the whispered secrets 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 but nobody saw
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 I'm trying hard to change I'm doing it the best that I can
Well because fate causes fortune and fortune takes it away
Well it's alright, baby I'm doing the best that I can

I was silent I was locked away
But I covered my tears
Silent all day
It's out of my hands here

In my distress well I wanted someone to blame me
In my devastation 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
Yes it's alright, baby I'm doing the best that I can
Because fate causes fortune and fortune takes it away
And then fortune causes nightmares nightmares that make you crazy
It's alright, baby I'm doing the best that I can
It's alright, baby I'm doing the best that I can
Oh he says well I hear you're doing fine and you're doing the best that you can
Well he says oh, I hear you're doing fine and you're doing the best that you can

Ooh she says it's alright, baby I'm doing the best that I can
Yes it's alright, baby I'm doing the best that I can
Oh and he says I hear you're doing fine and you're doing it the best that you can
Oh and he says ooh I hear she's doing fine and she's doing it the best that she can
Oh and I paid a price for it
I'm doing the best that I can
