Wrong Words

from by burnt.



i been trying for days on end
to get this message off to you my friend
but each and every time
i think i got that line
the words don't come out right

i been laying awake in bed
steady stream of verbage running through my head
o each and every time
i try try try
the words don't come out right

i thought i might have had it right there
but i guess it slipped my mind
o wait a minute here it comes
shucks my pen wen't dry
what i wouldn't give to catch the cat that's got my tongue
instead i watch her as she runs

what i really wanna know right now
do you think it's possible someway, somehow
for you to forgive me and just dance tonight
even if the words don't come out right
