Doing the Best I Can (Escape from Berlin)

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…
