Song Description

I keep putting off things that I know I must do including writing more songs. This song represents that frustration.

Story Behind the Song

I met with a couple of songwriters and all I heard was reasons why we couldn't write another song. We all decided to go home and write a song called No Excuse. To the best of my knowledge, I am the only one that finished the song.

Lyrics

No Excuse - For dishes in the sink
No Excuse - To let the cat box stink
No Excuse - I'm acting like a child
Why don't I do all my chores it's so juvenile

No Excuse - avoiding all these bills
No Excuse - not taking all my pills
No Excuse - see all those dirty clothes
Why don't I take care of this well God only knows

When I know that - I keep wasting time
& I know that - Life don't always rhyme
& I know that - I still use the same excuse
Again & again & again & again

When I know that - I should write a song
& I know that - You should sing along
& I know that - I still use the same excuse
Again & again & again just wait and see

No Excuse - it's like I hibernate
No Excuse - I keep ignoring fate
No Excuse - I put things off for a while
Why I always drag my feet it's just not my style

No Excuse - When I just sit and wait
No Excuse - Why do I procrastinate?
No Excuse - I always reconcile
Why don't I attack my life and run the last mile

When I know that - I keep wasting time
& I know that - Life don't always rhyme
& I know that - I still use the same excuse
Again & again & again & again

When I know that - I should write a song
& I know that - You should sing along
& I know that - I still use the same excuse
Again & again & again just wait and see

What am I waiting for? Life offers so much more. I'm just a bad domino
Why do I procrastinate well nobody knows (3x)
