Lyrics

Everday

Written By: Cas Haley / Seth Morley

Me aint got no money,
and I'm all alone,
live in a one room shack,
and I'm always stoned...
said I''ll try tommorrow,
like I did today,
and if it don't work out,
I will be ok...

Chorus:
Everyday...I sit around and play...
a little bit...a little bit...
evryday I sit around and play a little
bit...

Bill collectors calling,
five times a day,
they got me runnin' and hidin',
cause I can't pay,
I''ll try tommorrow,
like I did today,
and if it don't work out,
I will be ok...

Chorus.

I Loved You All Along

Written By: Cas Haley / Seth Morley

Baby...baby please believe me,
I know you don't really need me,
Baby...you don't have to tell me,
I know you do not need me,

Chorus:
You told me you loved me,
And it was I that was wrong,
you told me you loved me,
and it was I...I that was wrong,

You know I loved you all along,
you know I loved you all along,
you know I loved you all along...

Maybe baby I misunderstand you,
I don't want to keep and to have you,
Maybe baby you misunderstand me,
I wanna love you and you to love me...

Chorus:

Movin' On

Written By: Cas Haley / Seth Morley

Maybe the words you say aren't good enough,
why do the days slip away without a trace,
the things you do are driving me insane,
I look in your eyes and see an empty space...an empty space,

Chorus:
I feel like somethings going on,
I feel like somethings wrong,
I feel like somethings going on,
I feel like movin' on...

The truths coming out,
what's this about,
how I feel,
what can I do to make you refuse your love for me,
I'm losing my mind, I'm outta time,
I gotta get away,
see you, so long, bye-bye, come back another day,

Chorus:
