From “Ain’t What You Know” (2009)

by Bob Malone & Bob Demarco

Everything great that ever got done
Started as something that couldn’t be done
By someone who was told they couldn’t every day
Until they went and did it anyway
And everyone says that I’ll never get you
But they don’t know the situation like I do
I’ve been wearing you down a little every day
Now you’re coming ‘round and seeing things my way

But you keep me waiting
And you keep me hanging on
Yeah you keep me waiting
Ain’t nobody else gonna wait this long

Why not me?
I’m the one, baby can’t you see?
Why not me?
‘Cause you got to love somebody
Why not me?
The time’s as right as it’s ever gonna be…

Everything good that I ever did
Started as something I had to keep hid
‘Til I had nothing to lose and nowhere to go
Up against the wall is where you find your soul
And everything that I ever did for you
I did for love, the only reason to and
Even when I was the only one who believed
Believing in you was good enough for me

And you say you love me
But you’re too scared to let it go
But you can’t really love me
When your heart says you will, and your head says you won’t
