Something You Like

from by Mark Beasley



Fortune takes forever to get right, and I've never had the patience to be the fortunate type. I still try my hand from time to time, but this world revolves for those with all the biggest dollar signs, and anyone who tells you different lies – but that's alright.

Cause I just want to be something you like; forget about the easy way around it. Tell me what you need and I'll provide, and I won't ever stop until I've found it. It's a long ride.

Fame is held up lofty as a king, and most of us can only watch in wonder what it brings. I don't claim to have the world upon a string, but I feel almost famous when I know you're listening. I'm happy just to have you next to me – it's all I need.

I may never be out living life like royalty, but I've got friends I know would never leave my side. And you may never see me looking out through your TV, but you still know my face, so everything's alright; that suits me fine.
