MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

WORDS AND MUSIC BY HENRY GROSS ©2002 ACHTUNES, ASCAP

 

I MIGHT BE A LOVER OR SOMEONE NOBODY LOVES
A DEVIL FROM BELOW OR AN ANGEL FROM ABOVE
I MIGHT BE A TRUE BELIEVER OR HAVE NO FAITH AT ALL
MIGHT BE FLYING LIKE AN EAGLE OR HEADING FOR A FALL
MAYBE I’M JUST GOING WITH THE FLOW
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

I MIGHT BE A PLAGIRIST OR I MIGHT WRITE THE BOOK
MIGHT BE COMPLETELY HONEST OR A VERY CLEVER CROOK
I MIGHT BE A HERO OR A COWARD IN DISGUISE
A SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTER OR A STAR ON THE RISE
MAYBE I WILL REAP JUST WHAT I SOW
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

MAYBE I DON’T KNOW CAUSE I DON’T WANT TO
MAYBE I JUST CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND
MAYBE I’M A COMPLICATED PERSON
SOMEONE WHO’S NOT EASILY DEFINED

I MIGHT BE A GENIUS OR THE BOTTOM OF MY CLASS
I MIGHT BE LION HEARTED OR A SNAKE IN THE GRASS
I MIGHT BE A SAVIOR OR A SOUL WHO CAN’T BE SAVED
ON MY WAY TO IMMORTALITY OR JUST AN EARLY GRAVE
MAYBE ALL I WANT’S THIS SONG ON RADIO
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

MAYBE I DON’T KNOW CAUSE I KNOW NOTHING
MAYBE I CAN’T READ BETWEEN THE LINES
MAYBE I CAN SEE WHAT’S ALL AROUND ME
BUT TO MY OWN REFLECTION I AM BLIND

I MIGHT BE INNOCENT OR GUILTY AS SIN
MIGHT BE FAIR AND BALANCED OR A MASTER OF SPIN
I MIGHT BE WHAT I SEEM OR A JEYKLL AND HYDE
COMMITTED TO A CAUSE OR FOREVER CHANGING SIDES
MAYBE I’M JUST PUTTING ON A SHOW
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

I MIGHT BE A FACIST OR I MIGHT BE A FREAK
I MIGHT BE A SUPERMAN OR FRAGILE AND WEAK
MIGHT HAVE HOLES IN MY SOCKS OR POCKETS FULL OF GOLD
MIGHT FEEL YOUNGER THAN MY YEARS OR MAYBE TWICE AS OLD
MAYBE I’M SO HIGH I’M FEELING LOW
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

I MIGHT BE A BEAUTY OR I MIGHT BE A BEAST
I MIGHT BE A PRISONER OR I MIGHT BE RELEASED
I MIGHT BE A NASTY OVER EDUCATED SNOB
OR I MIGHT BE A SWEET UNSOPHISTICATED SLOB
MAYBE I’M A LITTLE BIT OF BOTH
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

MAYBE I DON’T KNOW  ‘CAUSE I’M TOO CERTAIN
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW  ‘CAUSE I’M IN DOUBT
MAYBE I THINK I’VE GOT ALL THE ANSWERS
MAYBE THEY’RE TOO TOUGH TO FIGURE OUT

I MIGHT BE AN ARAB OR I MIGHT BE A JEW
I MIGHT DREAM OF T BONE STEAK OR BAR B QUE’D TOFU
I MIGHT BE SINCERE OR TOTALLY JIVE
I MIGHT GO THE DISTANCE OR I MIGHT TAKE A DIVE
MAYBE SOMEDAY I’LL BE TURNING PRO
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

I MIGHT BE A LEADER OR BE EASILY LED
MIGHT HAVE AN OPEN MIND OR A HOLE IN THE HEAD
I MIGHT BE A KILLJOY, MIGHT BE A BON VIVANT
MIGHT BE A WASTED TALENT OR AN IDIOT SAVANT
MAYBE I’M ALL RIGHT AS HUMANS GO
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW

MIGHT BE A BENEFACTOR, MIGHT BE A FRIEND IN NEED
A MAN OF GENEROSITY OR INSATIABLE GREED
I MIGHT BE A GENTLE GIANT OR THE MOUSE THAT ROARED
MIGHT BE WORKING BY THE HOUR OR BE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
MAYBE I’M TOO FAST OR WAY TOO SLOW
MAYBE COLOMBUS CAME FROM OHIO
MAYBE I HAD BETTER LET YOU GO
MAYBE I DON’T KNOW
