JAMES OTTO lyrics - Shake What God Gave Ya

Good Thing's Gone Bad

Original and similar lyrics
Someone's been steppin' in While you've been steppin' out You thought you were slick, my friend You thought you had it figured out Honey But she was tired of bein' used Heard your last bad excuse Never thought she'd cut you loose Don't look so surprised You know you had it comin' If you hadn't have stayed out all night long (You wouldn't be sittin' here wonderin' why) (Waitin' by the phone with a tear in your eye) Runnin' all over town doin' her wrong (Actin' like you ain't got a thing to lose) (Thinkin' you're a player but you're playin' a fool) Maybe you could've held on to what you had (Should've treated her better when you had the chance) Good thing's gone bad, yeah, it has I know when you come and go And I know how long you'll be But don't look across the street For sympathy 'Cause you're not gonna get it Well, you're such a busy man She don't seem to fit your plans I'll take her off your hands Don't worry 'bout it, brother You know I got you covered If you hadn't have stayed out all night long (You wouldn't be sittin' here wonderin' why) (Waitin' by the phone with a tear in your eye) Runnin' all over town doin' her wrong (Actin' like you ain't got a thing to lose) (Thinkin' you're a player but you're playin' a fool) Maybe you could've held on to what you had (Should've treated her better when you had the chance) Good thing's gone bad, yeah, it has If you hadn't have stayed out all night long (You wouldn't be sittin' here wonderin' why) Runnin' all over town doin' her wrong (Waitin' by your phone with a tear in your eye) Maybe you could've held on to what you had If you hadn't have stayed out all night long (You wouldn't be sittin' here wonderin' why) Runnin' all over town doin' her wrong (Waitin' by your phone with a tear in your eye) Maybe you could've held on to what you had (Should've treated her better when you had the chance) Good thing's gone bad Good thing's gone bad

Mississippi

SHERYL CROW "Globe Sessions"
Every step of the way We walk the line Your days are numbered So are mine Time is piling up We struggle and we scrape All boxed in Nowhere to escape The city's just a jungle More games to play I'm trapped in the heart of it Trying to get away I was raised in the country Been working in the town I been in trouble since I Set my suitcase down I ain't got nothing for you I had nothing before Don't even have anything For myself anymore Sky's full of fire And the rain is pouring down There's nothing you can sell me So I'll see you around All my powers of expression And thoughts so sublime Could never do you justice Reason or rhyme There's only one thing that I did wrong I stayed in Mississippi a day too long The devil's in the alley The mule kickin' in the stall Say anything you wanna I've heard it all I was thinking about the things that she said I was dreaming I was sleeping in you bed Walking through the leaves Falling from the trees Feel like a stranger nobody sees So many things we never will undo I know you're sorry, well I'm sorry too Some people will offer you their hand and some won't Last night I knew you, tonight I don't I need something strong to distract my mind I'm gonna look at you till my eyes go blind Well I got here, following the southern star I crossed that river just to be where you are There's only one thing that I did wrong I stayed in Mississippi a day too long Well my ship's been split to splinters I's sinking fast I'm drowning in the poison Got no future Got no past But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free I've got nothing but affection for those who've sailed with me Everybody's moving if they ain't already there Everybody's got to move somewhere Well stick with me baby anyhow Things should start to get interesting right about now My clothes are wet Tight on my skin Not as tight as the corner that I painted myself in I know that fortune is waiting to be kind So give me your hand and say you'll be mine The emptiness is endless Cold as clay You can always come back But you can't come back all the way Well there's only one thing that I did wrong I stayed in Mississippi a day too long Yeah the only thing that I did wrong Was stayed in Mississippi a day too long The only thing that I did wrong Was stayed in Mississippi a day too long

Groove W Me Baby

Lari White "Green Eyed Soul"
I woke up this morning and I started thinkin' about you The way you smile the way you laugh the way you smell The way you do that thing you do And I...I... I got to thinkin' maybe we could get together you know Hang out spend a little time You know maybe we might hit it off We might like cook We might find out we were made for each other We might end up walkin' down the aisle Settin' up a little house You know havin' little children runnin' around Gettin' old with each other I can see the whole thing Groove w/ me baby All night long Groove w/ me baby The groove is so strong Groove w/ me baby We're doin' no wrong Tell me can't you see all that we could be Oh hey Sometimes I can't help myself my mind just starts to wander My imagination just goes crazy I start thinkin' about Man we could have so much love that it would just kind of Overflow run down the street all over the whole world before too long Everybody would be in love and they'd be groovin' on each other and diggin' each other There wouldn't be no more fightin' everybody would get along can't you see it Can't you just ...come on ... Ah Groove w/ me baby All night long Groove w/ me baby The groove is so strong Groove w/ me baby We're doin' no wrong Tell me can't you see all that we could be Oh hey Let your imagination go boy you never know Oh hey

Waiting For You

Allister "Last Stop Surburbia"
If I could tell you one thing Then I'd tell you everything I'd probably say that you've been on my mind Since we held hands out in the rain Smoking cigarettes to play Off all the butterflies I had inside And now I think that you should know That you've got everything That I've wanted for so damn long And that I wouldn't hesitate to trade away everything If you tell me that I'm not wrong So now I think that you should know That I've been waiting for you Whoa.. Yea I've been waiting for you (x4) If I could tell you one thing Then I'd tell you everything I'd probably say that you've been on my mind Since we sat underneath the stars as I held you in my arms Killing just another summer night And now I think that you should know That you've got everything That I've wanted for so damn long And that I wouldn't hesitate to trade away everything If you tell me that I'm not wrong So now I think that you should know That I've been waiting for you Whoa.. Yea I've been waiting for you (x4) It's funny how the best things happen sometimes And how I'll always remember those endless nights But don't forget I regret the fact that I have to leave you Right as the best part starts So I thought I'd take the time to say That I've been waiting for you Woah..Yeah I've been waiting for you(x8) yeah i've been waiting for you(x2)

Some Fun Now

JOHN HIATT "All Of A Sudden"
Now your private life Is in the public domain And your one true love is just a lipstick stain And your point of view Is just a figure of speech Well I rest my case, you're out of reach CHORUS: Havin' some fun Havin' some fun now Havin' some fun Havin' some fun now Well the tough get goin', and the good die young Maybe you're the only good your mama ever done But you wouldn't know a good thing if you saw One, two, three I'm down on my knees Four, five, six Gotta lot to fix Seven, eight, nine Goin' outta my mind And it's a fast free fall From a long hard climb CHORUS And you wonder how You ever got it so far From a Mel Bay book Into a long black car And all along the way They never made you cry But they never got the joke And you don't know why CHORUS The party's over and the war is won And you know what you're doin' 'Cause you know what you've done But you wouldn't know a good thing if you saw CHORUS

Just Once

Ingram James "Power Of Great Music"
I did my best But I guess my best wasn't good enough Cause here we are Back where we were before Seems nothin' ever changes We're back to being strangers Wondering if we ought to stay Or head on out the door Just once... Can't we figure out what we keep doin' wrong Why we never last for very long What are we doin' wrong Just once... Can't we find a way to finally make it right To make the magic last for more than just one night If we could just get to it I know we could break through it (Hmm hmmmm) I gave my all But I think my all may have been too much Cause Lord knows we're not gettin' anywhere Seems we're always blowin' Whatever we've got goin' And it seems at times with all we've got We haven't got a prayer Just once... Can't we figure out what we keep doin' wrong Why the good times never last for long Where are we goin' wrong Just once... Can't we find a way to finally make it right To make the magic last for more than just one night I know we could break through it If we could just get to it (Bridge) Just once I want to understand..... Why it always comes back to goodbye Why Can't we get ourselves in hand And admit to one another We're no good without each other Take the best and make it better Find a way to stay together Just once..... Can't we find a way to finally make it right (Whoa) Make the magic last for more than just one night I know we could break through it If we could just get to it Just Once..... Whoa oh, we can get to it Just Once..... Arranged by Quincy Jones.
