"The Best We Could Do" as written by and Carl E. Jackson....
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 asterisk 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

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
Because 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

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
