This ballad is the only track on Clancy's Tavern that Keith wrote on his own. He said: "It's one of my favorite things I have written by myself in the last couple years. I actually said one day in a conversation: 'don't expect too much from me and I won't let you down,' and I thought that it needed to be a song title. I wrote about two lonely rebels, a boy and a girl, finally falling in love. And the guy says: 'I ain't got a pot of gold, I ain't even got a rainbow, but I've heard that love is where treasure can be found, don't expect too much from me and I won't let you down.' Kind of a first take for the two rebels who let their hearts go."
Keith originally penned this for 2010's Bullets in the Gun but held it back as he considered it "was such a good ballad."
Many of Keith's generation will feel the male protagonist is a character familiar to them. He told Reuters: "My father had a lot of similar traits, but it is really about that generation. A lot of people come up to me and say 'That's my dad, that's my old man.' This guy is a kid at heart, probably around 30. He's met some girls in the past who he thought were right and it didn't work out, and he knows it was probably his fault. Now he's found someone who thinks she can change him and he's OK with that. The guy decides to be up-front with the girl, so he tells her 'Look, I love you and you love me, but I might not be capable of a relationship.'"
