Drive-by Truckers – (Something's Got To) Give Pretty Soon lyrics

Way you look at me like that, something抯 got to give pretty soon
Throw it on a camel抯 back, something抯 got to give pretty soon
Living hard to chase the dream, way beyond our ways and means
Yours don抰 mean a goddamn thing.
That抯 what you said, but, don抰 believe it.

That shattered look upon your face, something抯 got to give pretty soon.
Swallow, but can抰 stand the taste, bark at the wind, chase the moon
Living fast and drinking lots. List of things we haven抰 got.
Tired of life with the have-nots
That抯 what you said and I believe it.

Maybe what you need抯 for someone to send you flowers
Someone strong and mean who can prove he has the power to
Show you more than charm and take you on your way
To where you want to be at the end of the day
And it breaks my heart in two to know it ain抰 meant to be
But, it ain抰 me. It ain抰 me.

And you say it抯 these things I do, about me that抯 attracted you
So if I started doing something else, what would we have left.
And you say you just want compromise, then act so different all the time.
These reasons why you said goodbye, just another way of telling lies.

Something抯 got to give, got to give pretty soon
Or else we抮e gonna lose the very things that made it bloom
Sitting in silence in a cold and lonely room
While the world goes on around us

Something抯 got to give, got to give pretty soon
Or else we抮e gonna hate each other
And that would be the saddest thing I ever seen.
