I just can't seem to get it right today.
I just can't seem to get it right today.
I just can't seem to get it right today,
I guess I'm gonna give up.
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up.

It's nearly been a year since he's been gone,
And you still sing his goodbye songs.
Goodness knows she should move on
But she just can't let him go
No, she just can't let him go

Sorry if I made you want to cry.
Sorry if I made you want to cry.
You should know, I never meant to hide.
I just hate bringing you down.
Oh, I just hate bringing you down.

I just can't seem to get it right today.
I just can't seem to get it right today.
I just can't seem to get it right today,
I guess I'm gonna give up.
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up.

And I dropped my paintbrush in the dirt,
Still don't know how much that hurt.
I cut my hand and wait for it to work
I just couldn't bring him back.
No, I just couldn't bring him back.

I just can't seem to get it right today.
Oh, I just can't seem to get it right today.
I just can't seem to get it right today,
I guess I'm gonna give up.
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up.
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up.
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up.
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up.
Oh, I guess I'm gonna give up, oh Lord.
I said, I guess I'm gonna give up, oh Lord.
I said, I guess I'm gonna give up.

    I'm pretty sure this song is about a father who was there when the son died. And mama is sad. Maybe he hid after the loss. And the paintbrush is a memory of the day he died. The cut in the hand is the father's suicide. It bugging me not knowing the whole meaning.
