Giving You The Best That I Got. This song is by Anita Baker and appears on the album Giving You The Best That I Got (1988). Ain't there something I can give youIn exchange for everything you give to meRead my mind and make me feel just fineWhen I think my peace of mind is outOf reach. The scales are sometimes unbalancedAnd you bear the weight of all that has to beI hope you see that you can lean on meAnd together we can calm a stormy sea.
