Know What (Stripped Down)

This is a Stripped Down version of an old song of mine from 1994 called “Know What”. Lyrics by Stanley Jakubowitz.

Lyrics:

If you know what you are, so do I
I know what I want, reach for the sky
Coming together as I shake off these blues
Shakily I stand, slowly I reach for you.
And if at times the words are lost in the saying
Know this time ain’t a game that I’m playing
I’ve got one chance left to make it all come true
I’ll take my chances if you’ll be there, too.

Better know what you want, ‘cause I do.
Better take it now before it slips away, too.

Make a choice, say the words, take a stand.
Only comin’ 'round once, not again.
I won’t be held up by your indecision.
I’ve got a life to bring back from nowhere.
I’ll do it if you’ll be there.
Plans I’ve made if I have to be alone.
I’ll change them as long as I know
That you know what you want.

You’re gonna have to tell me what you want
Come on! Show me what it is you need.
You’re gonna have to reach out, too
If this is ever gonna succeed.
You’re gonna have to make up your mind
And then you’re gonna have to make me believe
If I ever thought that asking would make my dreams come true
Then I would’ve asked for someone like you.

But I never thought it. No, I never knew.
Now I’ll ask again if you want me, too.

Make a choice, say the words, take a stand.
Only comin’ 'round once, not again.
I won’t be held up by your indecision.
I’ve got a life to bring back from nowhere.
I’ll do it if you’ll be there.
Plans I’ve made if I have to be alone.
I’ll change them as long as I know
That you know what you want.

And when the music is silent and the sun is gone
No one on the stage except the last song.
The one, for always, the one that’s never wrong
Lifts me up, picks me up, makes me strong.
I’ll hold that, hold on to that for you
Because it’s you I want, yes I do.
But you’re the one who makes this lie or truth
I know where I stand, now I’m asking you.

Make a choice, say the words, take a stand.
Only comin’ 'round once, not again.
I won’t be held up by your indecision.
I’ve got a life to bring back from nowhere.
I’ll do it if you’ll be there.
Plans I’ve made if I have to be alone.
I’ll change them as long as I know
That you know what you want.

That you know what you want.
