Broadjam Member Reviews

Loved the vocals!

    - Abe Bram

As a song i thought this was excellent i really enjoyed listening to it the words meant something and said with emotion like the singer was feeling it
vocally wonderful and I was thinking wow if that was recorded better he would sound fantastic and if judging by the claps a the end you recorded live i am even more impressed loved to hear what a producer would do with it particularly the arrangement
If you were playing in a bar near me I would pay to hear you

Lyrics

I've been too long
looking at a photograph
through an unchanging window-pane
with a Saturday and Sunday aff
I've been too long
staring at the world outside
sitting in a office on the fourteenth floor
dying in a shirt and tie

and if a place get a hold
on a man too long
He sit right there looking
til the choice is gone
this life you got is yer only one
so you better get a move on

and you better do something
or you will never do nothing
you got a hold on a good thing
it's gonna get away
you better do something
or you will never do nothing
you got a hold on a good thing
it's gonna get away

I've been too long
headed for a heart-attack
I tried to do what I used to do
but I woke with a broken back

I've been too long
in this Saturday and Sunday life
staring at a woman in the opposite chair
wondering, is this my wife
if a face get a hold
on a man too long
He sit right there looking
til the curtain's drawn
this life you got is yer only one
so you better get yer shoes on

and you better do something
or you will never do nothing
you got a hold on a good thing
it's gonna get away
you better do something
or you will never do nothing
you got a hold on a good thing
it's gonna get away

Is there a reason for this
was there a pssionate kiss
or just a grope in a room
was there a wedding and flowers
and hours and hours
of sweet honeymoon
were they playing our tune

and if a face get a hold
on a man too long
He sit right there looking
til the curtain's drawn
this life you got is yer only one
so you better get yer shoes on

and you better do something
or you will never do nothing
you got a hold on a good thing
it's gonna get away
you better do something
or you will never do nothing
you got a hold on a good thing
it's gonna get away
