Lyrics

blues song

Written By: Justin McNatt (original)

Ain't no way,
you can beat me at this game.
The beast we pray,
will stay inside its cage.
(chorus)
How you doing today
and he replies.
Oh man i'm feeling great,
everything is fine.
Such an unusual thought,
that peace of mind.
but oh man i'm feeling great,
everything is fine.
Ain't no way,
you can run around all day.
But if the fool must have his way,
if your going for the record boy you better slow your pace.
(chorus)
You ain't no friend.
You ain't no friend of mine. x2
(chorus)

Soulmate

Written By: Justin McNatt

When darkness falls,
my hand is searching.
What has it found,
not anothers touch.
Unfinished things,
they keep me turning.
Run through it again,
oh how it all piles up.
Hand in the open air,
and if i could,
what would i wish it to be?
All i can see in the world,
but do i know,
what i really need?
Chorus:
Where is she today?
In a passing thought,
in a picture frame.
Where is she?

As daylight comes,
set my unwilling eyes to the prize.
Earn the one thing that means something to everyone,
but maybe not I.
I've been looking around,
but hey, there's little to find.
Stuck in this rut,
that has become my life.

Chorus, x2
Bridge:
I'm struggling,
struggling to meet the line.
In this long run we're in,
our footsteps keep the ticking time.
Oh why, i ask why?

Chorus, x2
