"Was There Anything I Could Do?" as written by Robert Derwent Garth Forster and Grant William Mclennan....
She comes home and she's happy
She comes home and she's blue
She comes home and she tells him
Listen baby we're through

I don't know what happened next
All I know is she moved
Packed up her bags and her curtains
Left him in his room

Was there anything I could do?
She went out with her paint box
Paints the chapel blue
She went out with her matchsticks
Torched a carwash too
I don't know where she's living
All I got is a card

A picture of her at the pyramids
A knife held to her heart
Was there anything I could do?
She came down from the mountains
Said goodbye to her guru
She went back to her room
Lost herself in voodoo

I don't say that I blame her
People don't know what they want
If you spend your life looking behind you
You don't see what's up front
Was there anything I could do?
Putting out her fire
Putting out her fire

    General CommentPerhaps my favourite song from TGB.

    "If you spend your life looking behind you
    You don't see what's up front"
    Some great lyrics....

    I've found myself in a aituation like this and its tough.For both..Sometimes she feels good and everything is great ,but sometimes she has her blues and everything is hell.And the worse part is that you dont know what to do to make her feel happy...
    Was it just her,was she stuck with someone or something from her past, Ill never know.....
    I'll just keep wondering if there was anything I could do....
