lyrics

You don't know who I am if I don't make it known
[...and let's assume that you believe me]
And if I want you to know me I think I better tell you so
[I gotta show you what I'm all about]
Or if I wanna grow in my business
Don't wanna be someone's side-kick forever
And I know how to do it
[I need to use what I got...]
Whatever's in me... I need to use it

Time is tickin'... meter's runnin'...
Sands in the hourglass just keep on comin'
World is turnin'... dynamite stick is burnin'...
Whatcha waitin' on?... I think I'm ready for my solo

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah... comin' out the box
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah... out the box
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah... I'm comin' out the box
[I'm comin' outta, gettin' outta, thinkin' outta]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I believe that's all it takes to get anywhere
[Gotta believe in myself]
I spent years defining myself based on how much I make [in] a year
I shoulda, I woulda, I coulda... if I only knew how to
get out of my own way
But if you know what I know right now... it's never to late

Time's a tickin'... meter's runnin'...
Sands in the hourglass just keep on comin'
[You know I'm ready for my solo now]
World is turnin'... dynamite stick is burnin'...
[You know I'm ready for my close-up now]
What's the hold-up?... It's time for my close-up

I have so much in me that I can share with the world [with everybody]
[Yeah, you know I have so much to give inside... I got so much to give]
But I locked it up and threw away the key
I've got too much love for one heart... I got too much heart for one soul
[I've got] too much soul for one man... Do you hear what I'm sayin'?
