"What Can I Do for You" as written by and Christopher David Archibald....
So this is goodbye
I'll miss that look in your eye
But we can't live out this life in a lie
So it's the best thing
I could have done for you
I have to let you go but i don't want to
Darling i die inside its true
Tomorrow i'll hide my love from you
It's like i always tend to do

So all you can do
Is separate himself from you
Before someone they love turns to cold, Cold blue

It's the best thing i could have done for us
This cancellation was a must
Don't love somebody you can't trust
Just think of us

It's the best thing i could have done for you
It's the best thing i could have done for myself
It's the best thing i could have done for us

    General CommentA fairly straightforward song about a guy about to break up with his girlfriend. I believe he realized she was cheating on him and felt she would be happier with the other man. He still had residual feelings for her but felt there was no other alternative. It was something he "must" do for him and her. Don't quite understand the "is separate himself from you" part.

    *Can't quite figure out the lyric at the end of the first verse. "It's like I always ________" Any ideas?
