"All I Can Do" as written by John Bettis and Richard Lynn Carpenter....
When you're on your own
When you're at a fork in the road
You don't know which way to go
There's too many suns in our rows
You haven't laughed in a while
When you can't even fake a smile
When you feel ashamed
The uniform don't make you brave

All I can do is love you to pieces
Give you a shoulder to cry when you need it
When the day is long, and the night is coming down on you
All I can do
All I can do
All I can do...

When you forget your name
And the pleasure can't disguise your pain
And you don't feel the same
I won't forget the love you made


What a lovely day to shape your dreams
And you don't even have to sleep
You can make it what you want to be
You can fly away
You can change your name
You can have a happy face
It can be so real



Is all that I can do

    General Comment"There's too many suns in our rows " I think she's actually saying: "There's too many signs and arrows"

    This song reminds me of my boyfriend.. he's confused as to what he's doing with his life, and all i can do is love him. he needs to figure the rest out for himself. very beautiful song.

    General Commentthis song is nice.. i think it's about the friendship.. "Give you a shoulder to cry when you need it. When the day is long and the night is coming down on you" .. it is the best phrase...

    General CommentIt's about emotional relationships in life. When life gets hard a compassionate love will keep people soft @ heart and emotionally stable. It's probably meant as emotional advice for us to take care of each other.

    Husbands be there for your wives and kids emotionally. Women, use this advice with your friends and family.
