Every dream that I dream
Seems to float on by
Like a cloud in the wind
Way up in the sky
Every move that I make
Seems to be the wrong way
Like a cold black night
After a summer day

What can I do
What can I do
Nothing to say but it used to be
Nothing to say but it used to be
What can I do

You still play my guitar
With a smile on my face
Now everything's changed
My whole life's rearranged
From the day I was born
Sidle Jinks was my name
Though I tried and I tried
That name still remains

What can I do
What can I do
Nothing to say but it used to be
Nothing to say but it used to be
What can I do

What can I do
What can I do
What can I do
What can I do

I hear voices all singing
But no one is there
It's a ghost of my life
Bringing past tense to mind
Lokin' key inside me
From the freedom and sin
Oh come let me in
I'll start all over again

What can I do
What can I do
Nothing to say but it used to be
No no no no no no no no no
What can I do
What can I do
What

    Great song. I was a kid when i first heard it, and being a ukrainian i naver came close to understand what it was about. Now, after 25 years i do. And i even share its emotions as if it were about me.

    The speaker of the song is telling us that his life is so messed up that even though how much he tried he seems can't find a way to make it right. But despite of it all he is taking it all in stride; he is still trying to change his life for the better.
