American Authors – Best I Could Do

Best I Could Do

[Verse 1]
Years have washed away
Thinking we're happy
Making believe that
Nothing has changed
But tides have come to turn
We've both stopped laughing
Faking a scene that's
Been well overplayed

[Bridge]
What could we have done
That would have been enough?

[Chorus]
Please don't let it show
That all this time, all this time
Kept me sailing farther from you
Please don't let it show
That all this time, all this time
Brought us to an end we both knew
I did the best that I could do

[Verse 2]
You were drifting off
The distance grew deeper
I tried to save you by playing your games
But time came crashing down
In your heart we'd sink here
I couldn't stand to take all the blame

[Chorus]
Please don't let it show
That all this time, all this time
Kept me sailing farther from you
Please don't let it show
That all this time, all this time
Brought us to an end we both knew
I did the best that I could do

[Verse 3]
You say we've more than parted
But show me how we've started
It must have been you
What happened to you?
But now we walk the shoreline
No longing lovers this time
It's all I can do

[Chorus]
Please don't let it show
That all this time, all this time
Kept me sailing farther from you
Please don't let it show
That all this time, all this time
Brought us to an end we both knew
Please don't let it show
That all this time, all this time
Kept me sailing farther from you
Please don't let it show
That all this time, all this time
Brought us to an end we both knew
I did the best that I could do
I did the best that I could do
