Every night I'm lyin' in bed
Thinkin' about all the things that we said
We try to talk it over
I know you were tryin'

Look at the way that we live
Left us so little to give
Was like a cold dark cloud
But here in my heart I give you the best of my love
Sweet darlin', you get the best of my love
I'm goin' back in time
It was a quiet night
If I could go on sleepin'
I wake up and worry
You see it your way
But we both see it slippin' away
I guess that wasn't enough
I give you the best of my love
Oh, sweet darlin'
Oh, sweet darlin'
Every night and day,
Oh, sweet darlin' you get the best of my love
