We Do What We Can

歌詞

Downstairs they're playing kenton

 

The house set to swing

 

I lay in my bed

 

And listen to everything

 

Cause Leo's in rare form tonight

 

His trombone sing's so sweet

 

This is the room

 

Where they all come to meet

 

He said

 

I do what I can

 

I live for the moment

 

And that's who I am

 

Yeah that's who I am

 

And isn't it good

 

If we could freeze moments in time

We all

 

Do what I can

 

I do what I can

 

Downstairs he's playing kenton

 

The magnavox sighs

 

But oh how the music has changed

 

In all of our lives

 

He says nobody listens

 

To modern jazz

 

And I'll never have what those guys have

 

He says

 

I do what I can

 

I work for a living

 

And that's who I am

 

Yeah that's who I am

 

And it's good to be alive

 

But everythings different since Leo died

 

I do what I can

 

Is this the end of the modern world

 

What could it mean for a young girl

 

Who sees the pain on his face

 

He does what he can

 

The procession on the TV screen

 

What could it possibly mean for a man

 

Who's come this far just to turn around

 

Could there still be life in kentons swing

 

With the Kennedys' gone and everything

 

Those sad rows of houses with their optimistic colors

 

Democrat grandparents and draft-dodging brothers

 

Riots down the street and discontented mothers

 

We do what we can

 

Downstairs it's quiet

 

Less alive somehow

 

Somehow he was everything that I am now

 

And he says

 

I do what I can

 

I work for a living

 

And that's who I am

 

And that's who I am

 

But it's good to be alive

 

And these are the choices

 

We make to survive

 

You do what you can
