Lyrics

I'm Still Thinking
© JimBustamante 2006

Spent my time, had some fun
Was it supposed to come undone
And leave me nothing left to show
Maybe I just try too hard
I push too soon to play my card
Maybe I think, but I don?t know

Mmmmmmm
I stand my ground, but I keep sinking
I wonder how far down
I'm still thinking

And the sun comes up as if to say
Come on get up another day
Things are better, look and see
So I try to wake up from my dreams
Where things are right, but it never seems
My dreams come true, oh no, not for me

Mmmmmmm
I stand my ground, but I keep sinking
I wonder how far down
I'm still thinking

From my shoes up to my knees
Slowly sinking by degrees
Like a stake into the ground
I guess I'm going down

Well there?s a chance that I might not be right
Like the chance I fall in love tonight
But I ain?t one to hold my breath
And people say it?s attitude
The things achieved are the things pursued
But after that well, ain?t much left

Mmmmmmm
I stand my ground, but I keep sinking
I wonder how far down
I'm still thinking
Mmmmmmm
Throw me a line, cuz I keep sinking
Can't be that far down
I ?m still thinking
