Yeah, yeah, mmmmm
No I won't make up my mind
I'm too good at wastin' time
And I know that life is unpredictable
Just never know what I will find

Am I gonna stay, oh no
Am I gonna leave, I don't think so
I guess I can define me as that kinda guy
Maybe it's a big mistake
But baby that's the chance that I'll take

Chorus:

You say I don't know what I want
But it worked out just fine
You said it never could be done
But it worked out just fine, oh
You can say anything you want
But it worked out just fine
If it works for me
Then it works for me
If it works for me
Then it works for me

I can't forget the things you said
Your words keep running through my head
And I know you're just trying to help me out
Thanks, but I'll follow my heart instead

Am I gonna stay, oh no
Am I gonna leave, I don't think so
I can't decide between the left side or the right
Maybe it's a big mistake
But baby that's the chance that I'll take, Oh Yeah!

You say I don't know what I want
But it worked out just fine
You said it never could be done
But it worked out just fine, oh
You can say anything you want
But it worked out just fine

If it works for me
Then it works for me
If it works for me
Then it works for me

Bridge:

There were days when a song could not be found
There were days when my voice would make no sound for me, for me
But I don't worry about it where I'm goin'
'Cause I know just where I'm wanna be
And it's time for you to see

You say I don't know what I want
But it worked out just fine
You said it never could be done
But it worked out just fine, oh
You can say anything you want
But it worked out just fine

If it works for me
Then it works for me
If it works for me
Then it works for me

    This song is about following your gut instinct. Other people might tell you how to do things and some since they have already gone through similar stuff, might successfully convince you to do so, but in the end, you're in charge of your own life and the goals that you set.

    I just heard this music just last week and this song REALLY DO portray what David Archuleta is. This song is about all thinking positive. Whatever he's doing on good purpose, anything will go right, or not. But he will keep trying because anything WORKS FOR HIM :))
