Emmylou Harris - The Best We Could Do lyrics

Well, I`ve been searching for a
Way to write you down on my list
But now I know what it`s for
It`s not a resume or application form
No you`re not an asterik on my resume no more

So now I`ll write it down in case you need my help
With singing all your words that raise my settled soul
And now I know the risk was worth it all the while
I just needed a way to see, to see you

chorus:
And then I wake to find you in my tears
Waited to feel you burn inside me all these years
That`s when I know, I know it all goes back to you
`Cause you are the best that I could do

It`s hard to find something clear
When you`re surrounded by clouded minds
It`s better to know yourself with what little you find
All, all on your own than to
Find yourself with what little they know

So now I`ll write it down in case you need my help
With singing all your words that raise my settled soul
And now I know the risk was worth it all the while
I just needed a way to see, to see you

chorus

One more day
One more day to show them
One more day
One more day to show that I`m not fazed
And I won`t wait not one more day

chorus
