The Doppler Effect – The Shakedown lyrics

I've come too far to let this go
I'm taking the words right out of notes you wrote
And if I keep the best you're sure to find
That you could never really make it alone

All aboard
I think it's safe to say lets celebrate
I just can't wait until the curtain call
I've given it all just to make the grade
Over and over

It's lust for what we do
Yes it's our own obsession
And we have every intention of sticking around

This is the shakedown
The first step
This is the spotlight you never knew you left
This is me trying to set the stage
But you're never gonna get it
No you're never gonna get it right

This is the shakedown
The first step
This is the spotlight you never knew you left
This is me trying to set the stage
But you're never gonna get it
No you're never gonna get it right

Since when is it cool to have fun?
To have a smile on your face
When you do what you love

I thought this was a serious business
Don't be so serious!

It's lust for what we do
Yes it's our own obsession
And we have every intention of sticking around

This is the shakedown
The first step
This is the spotlight you never knew you left
This is me trying to set the stage
But you're never gonna get it
No you're never gonna get it right

This is the shakedown
The first step
This is the spotlight you never knew you left
This is me trying to set the stage
But you're never gonna get it
No you're never gonna get it right

Oh, let's go!
Was it your plan for me to give you away?
No it's not what you wanted
No that's not what you wanted
You've got nerve thinking I wouldn't say
Anything to your face
Just when you thought you were safe

There goes another night
The memories pile high
We'll fight our last fight
To grab your attention
And satisfy

The lust for what we do
Yes it's our own obsession
And we have every intention of sticking around

This is the shakedown
The first step
This is the spotlight you never knew you left
This is you trying to set the stage
But you're never gonna get it
No you're never gonna get it right

This is the shakedown
The first step
This is the spotlight you never knew you left
This is you trying to set the stage
But you're never gonna get it
No you're never gonna get it right

We've come too far to let this go
Were taking the words right out of words you wrote
And if we keep the best you're sure to find
That you could never really make it alone
We'll make it alone.
