straight ahead lyrics – david cook

i’ve got questions for you
you’ve got answers, untrue
i can walk these circles all night long
take a pill to sleep off
everything you can think of
walking all these circles to a song
could you play me something new?

so take a minute just to breathe
and think of everything you wanted
and what you got instead
is it a labor just to see?
around the left, the right, over my head
just straight ahead

find a new way to feel right
between this and a fist fight
i can read the circles around your eyes
this is life, this is no rhyme
find a beat, find the right time
to organize these circles to a song
could you play me something new?

so take a minute just to breathe
and think of everything you wanted
and what you got instead
is it a labor just to see?
around the left, the right, over my head
just straight ahead, yeah

so take a minute just to breathe
and think of everything you wanted
and what you got instead

so take a minute just to breathe
and think of everything you wanted
and what you got instead(what you got instead)
is it a labor just to see?
around the left, the right, over my head
just straight ahead, yeah
