(Allison Moorer/Doyle Primm)

When you left, I never thought I'd say
I'm alright without you anyway
But just because I say the words
Don't mean I think they're true
It's just that it's the best that I can do

I don't go to places you might be
I can't take the chance that we might meet
But just because I've stayed away
Don't mean I wanted to
It's just that it's the best that I can do

Someday I'll do better, but till then
I can't let you know how hurt I've been
I wish I had you back with me
But I won't play on your sympathy
To get you in my arms once again

I admit there are others I have seen
Sometimes I need the company
But just because I'm loving them
Don't mean I'm over you
It's just that it's the best that I can do
