Wrong Words

from Brains Keep Cookin' 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


from Brains Keep Cookin', released April 19, 2009
