Kid Rock – Best Of Me lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can't sing like Marvin Gaye, no
I can't play that grand piano
I neva was at the top of my class
I neva threw no touchdown pass
All I got is cut glass to stand on
Cos' I neva planned on gettin' my hands on
No kind of cash or a woman like you
That could last the whole life through
But now that you're here, it seems so clear
Now I ain't got no southern mansion
And I ain't much good at slow dancin'
I neva swam the English Channel
And people they say I'm hard to handle
Cos'i'm like a candle in the wind
But where you end is where I begin
And I neva win cos' I'm good at losin'
And thank the Lord I'm good at choosin'
Cos'now that you're here, it seems so clear

When the lights go down & the music plays
I feel like a king that could sing for days
I know sometimes that we don't always agree
They scream for more & the more I give
It takes a toll on the way we live
Please forgive me baby & try & see
Yeah, try & see, please try & see
That you get the best of me

[Verse 2]
Now I didn't make no reservations
And I didn't plan no great vacation
Cos' I've been chasin' rain drops fallin'
Runnin' from love when it keeps callin'
And I know you think I'm just playin' the field
But let me show you girl what's real
Cos'i'm all in like a crazy gambler
And though I don't have all the answers
Now that you're here, it seems so clear

[Chorus X2]
