Lyrics

Unfinished Business

Written By: John Connolly

I got unfinished business, got things I have to say.
I need a witness - I’m finally doing it my own way.

People out there I know you realize
I’ve got things I have to do with my life.
When I lay my head down on the pillow at night,
I keep thinking of the rest of my life with

Unfinished business, got things I have to say.
I need a witness – I’m finally doing it my own way.

I was a man, nervous and scared
‘bout what everyone thought, yeah you out there.
Now I don’t care much and I don’t compromise.
I stick with the truth and a few white lies.

I’ve got unfinished business, got things I have to say
I need a witness – I’m finally doing it my own way.

I don’t know about you, but I went through a change.
Got tired of living for everyone else and weary with the game.
Phone calls and accusations made me want to change my name.
I still got unfinished business just the same.

Now I know, I’ve seen the light,
I can’t go back into the night.
I’m living my life honest and square,
doing what I can to help you out there.

I’ve got unfinished business, got things I have to say.
I need a witness – I’m finally doing it my own way.

I’ve got unfinished business, got things I have to say.
I need a witness – I’m finally doing it my own way.
I’m finally doing it my own way.
I’m finally doing it my own way.
