The Ball

Original and similar lyrics
If I hadn't dropped the ball, I would've took it all the way Homecoming '89 with ten seconds left to play We were drivin' toward the goal line, they were screamin' in the stands I had the chance to be a hero, but it slipped right through my hands There would've been a big pep rally, the would've hung my jersey on the wall If I hadn't dropped the ball Me and Cindy Miller were supposed to meet after the game I waited by the bleachers, but she never came I found a note on my windshield underneath the wiper blade With goodbye bleedin' through it in the cold October rain We probably would've gotten married And those recruiters in from 'Bama would've called If I hadn't dropped the ball [CHORUS:] MY LIFE WOULD'VE BEEN SO DIFFERENT IF IN THAT INSTANT THINGS HAD GONE THE WAY I PLANNED BUT THE FACT IS THAT THEY DIDN'T, AND THE HAND I WOUND UP GETTING IS SOMETHING THAT I'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND I ran away that summer, took a job out on the coast And that's where I met your mama, and the rest I guess you know If I had the chance to go back and score that last touchdown Well, son, I wouldn't do it, 'cause you wouldn't be here now And I wouldn't be your hero, I wouldn't be around to catch you when you fall If I hadn't dropped the ball [CHORUS:] MY LIFE WOULD'VE BEEN SO DIFFERENT IF IN THAT INSTANT THINGS HAD GONE THE WAY I PLANNED BUT THE FACT IS THAT THEY DIDN'T AND THE HAND I WOUND UP GETTING IS THE ONE THAT GOD INTENDED ME TO HAVE No, I wouldn't be the man I am at all If I hadn't dropped the ball

Drag

Impulse Manslaughter
Remembering back on your life At a time things were different then wasn't sure what time would bring But you knew it couldn't be the same The feelings you had, the power they held Knew deep down inside no matter how you tried. It just wouldn't last, the magic would die You hoped it wouldn't happen, didn't want it to go away Prayed it wouldn't happen, didn't want it to go away Like everything else their memory begins to fade So much time has gone away so many things had to change Now what are you gonna do Sit around and mope or get off your ass Stop feeling sorry for yourself you know you want it back but theres nothing you can do You've got to stop living in the past And go on with the rest of your life It's just fact of life You've gotta accept the fact That things aren't going to have to stay the same And you're not the only one in hoping they would stay Why can't you put as much power of your feelings Into something useful to make an effort To overcome and make a new life for yourself Just because things aren't the same Doesn't mean they can't be as good or even better Rise above the change don't let it keep holding you back forever Once you see you can fully control your fate Then you'll know that you should just do the best you can And you'll find out that that it's not so bad At least you'll know that you gave it your best shot

Look On

JOHN FRUSCIANTE "Inside Of Emptiness"
I can't get through Knots in my mind I resent The self i can't find I can't get through A paper and a pencil Are the best friends i've got I went to downtown LA. Got picked up by the cops I didn't get what i wanted But i didn't care a lot I saw that life was kidding Look on I'm warning you I skipped a life To be here i've got no right I'm bad luck I used to feel a lot Things used to be alright so much was going on I'm empty now inside When i thought life was terrible Things were going fine Vincent called as a set up Look on It's not right I lost my fame It's a cheap trick I wanna do it again I've got no life I am a seperate entity From the guy i was before Here nobody wants me I hoped for something more I flip through empty pages That i thought i wrote on I can't tell what is dreaming Look on

For Sale

KASEY CHAMBERS "Wayward Angel"
Wouldn't you think that I'd have it all figured out by now that I'd know exactly what I'm dong wouldn't you think that I'd have a key to open every melody and sing like it is all here at my feet wouldn't you think that I'd have a life hanging on my wall so I could prove that I'm alive but these are just things I've been given for a plastic way of living and I'm not sure if that really is my style the second hand it rolls on by it never looks back to wait for mine and if I fall any harder this time if I dig any deeper Lord what will I find well you can buy my life on radio and order me by mail but not everything about me is for sale no not everything about me is for sale wouldn't you think that I'd have the strength to carry anything and I could buy myself a brand new set of hands but sometimes like the others I just ran away take cover and I swear that no one really understands the second hand that rolls on by it never looks back to wait for mine

The Same Old Song And Dance

FRANK SINATRA "Come Dance With Me"
It's just the same old song and dance, the same old song and dance, Turns out you never cared at all, turns out you bound me like a ball, Whoever thought I'd fall for the same old song and dance, It's just the same old smooth routine, the same old moonlit scene, Turns out you only used those eyes simply to tell me all those lies, I really went king-size for the same old song and dance. Me with a built-in radar, me with a cushion hard, Winding up number one on the all-time loser's card. I should forget you but I won't, should hate you but I don't, It didn't turn out like I planned but if you smile and wave your hand, I'd go out and hire a band, and wait for one more chance, At the same old song and dance. (instrumental) It didn't turn out just like I planned, But if you smile and wave your lily white hand, I'd go out and hire a band, then wait for one more chance, At the same old, same old song and dance.

Sometimes A Man Takes A Drink

TRACE ADKINS "X"
Last night he fell down but he got right back up Had one too many I guess Tomorrow he won't remember tonight he just want's to forget The pressure he's under the hell he's been in The knife twisted up in his gut When this is all over he's gonn get sober Right now he's just down on his luck Sometimes a man takes a drink So he can just throw his head back and laugh At things he can't change Like the bills he can't pay and all of those ghosts from the past It's the crutch he leans on when things have gone wrong Life didn't turn out like he planned Sometimes a man takes a drink Sometimes a drink takes the man Not that long ago he could take it or leave it Now he wonders when it all changed When did he stop being happy go lucky and become a prisoner in chains Trapped behind bars no longer in charge Where did the good times all go He knows it's got him cause he's on the bottom Real close to out of control Sometimes a man takes a drink So he can just throw his head back and laugh At things he can't change Like the bills he can't pay and all of those ghosts from the past It's the crutch he leans on when things have gone wrong Life didn't turn out like he planned Sometimes a man takes a drink Sometimes a drink takes the man Sometimes a man takes a drink Sometimes a drink takes the man
