"I'll Do My Best" Lyrics

Badly Drawn Boy Lyrics


"I'll Do My Best"

I came here with nothing
I’m gonna leave with less
Lately there’s been something
Laying heavy on my chest
It’s hard for me to say it, but
I’m ready to confess
I’ve known for a while now
That I haven’t been my best

It’s hard to start a fire when it rains
Try to satisfy her for a change
I’ll do my best
Don’t settle for nothing less
Than my best

I’ve been undecided now
For most of my life
I took a vow to change this
When you said you’d be my wife
Now I’ve got not only
Myself to amuse
I’ve gotta try to make you happy
There’s no excuse
A cold day in springtime
When you took my name
It’s down to me to prove it
Wasn’t taken in vain

It’s hard to start a fire when it rains
Try to satisfy her for a change
I’ll do my best
Don’t settle for nothing less
Than my best

And it’s no good making promises
If they fail and go wrong
I’ve been a fool for chasing happiness
When it was there
All along
All along

It’s hard to start a fire when it rains
Try to satisfy her for a change
It’s hard to start a fire when it rains
Try to satisfy her for a change
I’ll do my best
Don’t settle for nothing less
Than my best

And it’s no good making promises
If they fail and go wrong
I’ve been a fool for chasing happiness
When it was there
All along

And it’s no good making promises
If they fail and go wrong
I’ve been a fool for chasing happiness
When it was there
All along
