9. The Best That I Can

(Barry Keenan)


When I was young life was easy
I used to play in the sand
No complicated issues
To have to try and understand
Now everyday is a struggle
To live according to plan
I keep moving forward
I do the best that I can

The best that I can
The best that I can
I try to be happy
I do the best that I can

Now there are people all around me
Who can’t handle life’s pain
They crumble and breakdown
And they cry like the rain
I tell them to hold on
Have faith in God and believe
It’s the only solution
It’s the only relief

The best that I can
The best that I can
I try to have faith
I do the best that I can

Time goes so fast
In the blink of an eye
It seems to me with such limited time
We all help each other to live and survive
To ease each other’s pain

The best that I can
The best that I can
I try to have strength
I do the best that I can

The best that I can
The best that I can
I try to have faith
I do the best that I can
I try to be happy
I do the best that I can
