Might Be Great

from by David Allen Slater

about

It's great when you finally find your purpose in life and then there comes the understanding of the work you still have to do to realize that purpose in it's full potential. Along the way, everyone you meet has advice for you and think you should do things the way they think you should do it.

Might Be Great was written after having so many people tell me what they thought I should do when it came to my music. In the end only you can walk your own path and do things in their own time as you learn along the way. The song explores the coming of age of myself as a songwriter and fledgling performer and keeps the message of having to do things at my own pace. While others may not like to wait on the results of all your hard work, they also do not have to walk in your shoes and do it themselves.

Basically I was saying, "Get off my back and have a little patience and one day the results might be great when i get to where I am headed with my music." After all, things always come in their own time and you just cannot rush art and music.

Verse 1
SOMETHING INSIDE JUST EXPLODED NOW
AND I'M NOT ASLEEP NO MORE
THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS
WHEN YOU'RE LIVIN' THE LIFE YOU WERE MEANT FOR

THERE AIN'T NOTHIN' HOLDING YOU BACK BOY
ALL OF THE LIGHTS TURNED TO GREEN
WHAT THE HELL ARE YA WAITING FOR
YOU FINALLY LANDED A PART IN THE SCENE

CHORUS:
JUST DON'T RUSH ME TO GET IT ALL DONE
I LIKE TO DO THINGS AT MY OWN PACE
IF YOU'D JUST TAKE A STEP OR TWO BACK
IT MIGHT BE GREAT ONE DAY
MIGHT BE SO DAMN GREAT YEAH

Verse 2
YOU SAY THAT YOU'RE TIRED OF WAITING NOW
BUT I'M STILL HEADED FOR THE SUN
SOME THINGS TAKE A LITTLE LONGER NOW
IT'S SO HARD TO JUDGE WHEN YOUR OUT ON THE RUN

AND MAYBE FOR YOU IT'S SO EASY YEAH YEAH
BUT YOU'VE NEVER WALKED IN MY SHOES
TRUST ME THERE AIN'T NO COMPARISON
CUZ SOMETIMES TO WIN YOU JUST GOTTA LOSE

CHORUS:
JUST DON'T RUSH ME TO GET IT ALL DONE
I LIKE TO DO THINGS AT MY OWN PACE
IF YOU'D JUST TAKE A STEP OR TWO BACK
IT MIGHT BE GREAT ONE DAY
MIGHT BE SO DAMN GREAT YEAH

BRIDGE:
BUT I CAN'T SLEEP TONIGHT
WHY DO WE ALWAYS FUSS AND FIGHT
ABOUT THE SAME THINGS EVERYDAY?

CHORUS:
JUST DON'T RUSH ME TO GET IT ALL DONE
I LIKE TO DO THINGS AT MY OWN PACE
IF YOU'D JUST TAKE A STEP OR TWO BACK
IT MIGHT BE GREAT ONE DAY
MIGHT BE SO DAMN GREAT YEAH
