Potential

from the album "Outdoor Elvis"

Words and Music by Camarillo Eddy
1989 Broken Songs

here's a speck on the canvas
of future projections
a drop in the bucket of
tomorrow's successes
if i have the faith and know-how
i might watch our ship come in
my full potential

successful man can tell at a glance
if a man were born to lose
but no one here is givin' me a chance
except You, Lord, except You

here's a speck on the canvas
of future projections
a drop in the bucket of
tomorrow's successes
if i have the faith and know-how
i might watch our ship come in
my full potential

fed on the air of my fantasies
they say i'm wasting away
a star-struck lover doomed for tragedy
not true, baby, not true

here's a speck on the canvas
of future projections
a drop in the bucket of
tomorrow's successes
if i have the faith and know-how
i might watch our ship come in
my full potential

i will arrive, i'll realize
my full potential, baby
everybody watch my full potential
everybody watch my ship come in
