BEST YOU CAN DO - Alternate/Film&TV/Rock

Kay Bell/Kat Ferguson
Artist - Kat Ferguson

Story

This song is the result of a strange dream Kat had one night.

 

In this instance she’d started the verse lyrics and had a melody in place. I really love the imagery in the second verse, personally, and once produced, I feel this idea could really enhance film or TV footage, especially if the theme is twisted, dark, or perhaps zombie or vampire-like.

Lyrics

V1

Here it goes, the story, of a lonely, lonely girl

Heartbroken o’er winter, with no one to warm her

Should she just, give up and, try and end it?

Cutting herself again

PC

Oh no, the voices in her head they say so

Oh no, the voices in her head they say; the voices in her head they say

CH

Will you take me? Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Dare to break this china doll in two

Try to make me; do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Lyke wake me

V2

Her coffin, looks iffy, white roses are aglow

She’s peaceful and she’s dreaming, and nobody can bother her

And when she, awakes from, the restless sleep she’s in

She wonders, she wonders, is there anything left to give?

CH

Will you take me? Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Dare to break this china doll in two

Try to make me; do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Lyke wake me; is that the best you can do?

Bridge

C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon; c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon; c’mon, c’mon, c’mon

Is that the best you can do? Whoa-oh-oh-oh

C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon; c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon; c’mon, c’mon, c’mon

Is that the best you can do? Is that the best you can do?

CH X2

Will you take me? Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Dare to break this china doll in two

Try to make me; do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Lyke wake me

Is that the best you can?

Will you take me? Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Dare to break; is that the best you can do?

Try to make me, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Lyke wake me 

OUTRO
