John Popper & The Duskray Troubadours – What Can I Do For You lyrics

Until I met you, I led the life of a dilettante
An aimless drifter, never knowing what I really want
Night after night alone I lay
Still I dared to dream that you'd show up one day
What can I, what can I do for you?

You hold my hand and whisper in my ear
Tender words I was hoping to hear
And I drink deep of ambrosia wine when you show me that you are mine
What can I, what can I do for you?

Can I lift you up and never let you fall?
Can I stand beside you baby when your back's against the wall?
Your love has taught me how to open wide
Now I'm dedicated, motivated and ready to provide

There's just one thing I want to ask you to do
Be gentle with this heart that now belongs to you
And it will pay you back in kind
Anything that you desire, I don't mind
What can I, what can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do?
