but I'm sure going to give you a try
Why They're Inappropriate:
I skipped one line in there to show the relevance of these two lines. She says that she wants him by her side but she's going to give him a try. hmm... Furthermore, 'but' usually is used to contrast two statements. I don't know why she changed it because in Rod Stewart's original version he says 'and'.
