I Can Do This
Lyrics by David Cameron Anderson, Davecamson Music ASCAP
Music by Steven Landau, Stevepno Music ASCAP

I can do this
I can be your friend
I can see how long your hair has grown and not be there for the growing
I can hear how your heart broke, how some fool let you down
And I can be part of this mending
While still in mourning for the ending

I can do this
I can look you in the eye
I can see your hand an inch from mine and know it's not for the taking
I can hear how much I'm loved, but what a mistake we were
And I'll act the part of agreeing
and know there's sadness you're not seeing

When there's five minutes left
And your visit to my life is almost over
I'm wondering how long I can hold you before it's wrong

I can do this
I can be your friend
I can see you to the door and hold my smile until its closing
I can hear you start your car I am already clearing cups
And I can be part of this mending
While still in mourning for the ending.
