Track Name: The Best That I Can [single]
I thought all about you this morning. I put on my favorite jacket and cologne. I combed my hair and trimmed my beard, so I could look my best for you. I showed up on time for all of my classes. I said, "hello," to every stranger that I passed. I didn't smoke at all today, so you wouldn't pick up on my troubled past. I thought of you, and what you do. Blue green eyes like traffic lights. I smiled driving in LA traffic. I turned the other cheek to a jerk. I practiced what I'd say to you, mumbling like a creep in the coffee line. I tried to focus on my objective. Second thoughts and fears all racing out. But I'm humming all the songs you showed me, trying to keep my cool from running out. What I saw you across the room, just standing there, ribbons in your hair, you were nodding to the music, acting cool like you always. Picking up on my advances, you turned around and saw me, too. I was brave and overwhelming - laughing at your every word. I decided just to tell you even though I knew. I tried to ask you out this evening. It didn't go exactly as I'd planned. But tomorrow is a new day. I'm gonna try the best that I can.
