I’m not the best you could imagine, but I’m the best you’ll ever have

And I know you can’t stand it—and I know you can’t take it

 

But you will, because you must…because I’m giving you everything

 

Could you maybe put away your pride for a while?

Could you maybe lower your guard against humanity?

 

Could you maybe take a break from knowing it all?

Could you maybe give me more than a shot in the dark?

 

I know I’m not what you expected; I know I’m not what you wanted

 

I know I’m nothing like what you imagined, and I know you just can’t stand it—and I know you’ll refuse to take it

 

But you will, because you must…because I’m giving you everything, and you know it

 

Would you throw down the world if I hand it to you?

Would you spit on your dreams if I found a way in them?

 

Would you let yourself stay cold if I offered to hold you?

Would you keep on believing, would you keep on deserving a perfection that doesn’t exist?

 

I may not be the best you could imagine; I may not be the one you were expecting

 

But I never lied or claimed to be, so you can’t blame me for that

 

And I know you can hardly stand it—and I know you can hardly accept it

 

But you will, because you’ve got not other choices, because you’ve got no other chances

 

Because I’m all you have…and I’m giving you everything

 

Because I’m giving you everything…and you’re all I want to have
