Lyrics

Why We Said Goodbye

Written By: Ian Turner

Can’t remember why we said goodbye
can’t remember why we said goodbye
believe me girl you know I’d never lie
just can’t remember why we said goodbye

Was it for the thoughtless way I live
was it for the love I didn’t give
was it for the anger in your eyes
was it for the truth we can’t disguise

Can’t recall what happened to my life
can’t recall what happened to my life
believe me when I say she was my wife
just can’t recall what happened to my life

Did it float away with all my tears
did it pass on by like all the years
did it move into the distant past
did it have to go away so fast

Can’t remember why we said goodbye
can’t remember why we said goodbye
believe me girl you know I’d never lie
just can’t remember why we said goodbye

Was it for the thoughtless way I live
was it for the love I didn’t give
was it for the anger in your eyes
was it for the truth we can’t disguise

Paralyzed

Written By: Cody Coe

Gettin some good love tonight
Comin’ on so hard and strong it’s frightening
Electricity in the air, there’s nothing like that lightning stare
You know so well, you know so good

I feel her coming on
Love so thick and strong it clouds the air
Shining on me she blinds me
Come on come on come on now

I’m paralyzed
Paralyzed
She paralyzed me

Silky lips that taste of fire
The whispering winds’ told me of her desire
Do you wanna copulate make the world gyrate
Celebrate all the love we make yeah
Synchronicity is such a lovely thing

I feel her coming on
Love so thick and strong it clouds the air
Shining on me she blinds me
Come on come on come on now

I’m paralyzed
Paralyzed

Solo

Paralyzed
Paralyzed
She paralyzed me, yeah

Anesthetized I’m feeling high
The colors clash yeah girl you rule my mind
Another crazy trip my mind drip by drip
The more you fight yeah the tighter the grip
And when I kiss your lips yeah girl you know you’re mine, all mine

You feel me coming on
Love so thick and strong it clouds the air
Shining on you I’ll blind you
Come on come on come on now

You’re paralyzed
Paralyzed
I paralyzed you yeah yeah
You’re paralyzed

Get It Right

Written By: Cody Coe

I can’t take much more of this Lord
Something’s got to give
I’ve got to find a way to make things right
You hear them tell me time and again boy
Don’t get your hopes so high
But that’s the way I live

I’d rather be making love to my sweetheart so fine
But she’s got her plans and I’ve got mine
They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, right?
I’ve laid a brick or two myself

Sometimes the road you choose won’t be the easy one
Some people fight you just to fight
In their innocent eyes a child he only sees right
And some day I pray that I
Get it Right

I can’t take much more of this Lord
Somethings got to give
I’ve got to find a way to make things right
You hear them tell me time and again boy
Don’ t get your hopes so high
But that’s the way we live

Sometimes the road you choose won’t be the easy one
Some people fight you just to fight
In their innocent eyes a child he only sees right
And some day we’ll pray that we
Get it Right
