Maybe You

Maybe You

My pockets are empty, and my mind is so full 
Of too many memories from days gone by. 
But heaven knows, I don’t seek silver or gold, 
That would surely vanish, at the blink of an eye. 
I never ask for much 
More than I can hold or touch. 

They say that you can’t always get what you want, 
So what else am I supposed to do? 
Just live out my days with only a few simple pleasures 
And maybe you... and maybe you. 

In another place and time, maybe I wouldn’t mind  
Having it all, and then some more.  
What is it worth, to live free every day? 
Well I’d pay a king’s ransom, and that’s for sure. 

Nothing ventured.  Nothing gained. 
Nothing up my sleeve. Nothing restrained. 

My pockets are empty, and my mind is so full 
Of too many memories from days gone by. 
But heaven knows, I don’t seek silver or gold, 
That would surely vanish, at the blink of an eye. 
Nothing in life is free 
If you pay eventually. 

They say that you can’t always get what you want, 
So what else am I supposed to do? 
Just live out my days with only a few simple pleasures 
And maybe you... and maybe you. 
And maybe you... and maybe you.

Songwriter's Notes: This one rocks! It's about a person feeling stuck in a busy and complicated life, but craving only the bare necessities. He desires to keep things simple, and avoid most materialistic temptations. However, he finds it necessary to include his loved one... well, maybe. This is a melodic, guitar-oriented rock song.
