The Holdup – Motion lyrics

I am more then just a guy with a short attention span
Who can write your favorite love song just as good as Marvin can
But I don't claim to sing it with the talent of that man
I should know how good he is because I am his biggest fan
There's more to me then jokes and witty lines that I deliver
It's obsessive behavior that you people do not consider
The lights go out at night it's not the cold that makes me shiver
It's the stress of trying to sleep when I got issues that are bigger
Cause lately I've been thinking about the girl that I am losing
And I'm concerned about the number of albums that we've been moving
Excuse me that when I'm not taking pills I switch to boozing
Cause this Vicodin is weak no matter how much I'm consuming
My cell phone bill is due but I don't got the cash to pay it
Wanna tell my girl I love her but don't got the time to say it
I can't believe in god so I don't got the right to praying
Just another night alone in this bed I've got to lay in

So important that we get this in motion
I don't think you understand all the pain and emotion we go through
It's so true
Just ambitious don't mean to insult you
I got big dreams for big things
So Ima stay right here in the big leagues
I still wonder when you'll understand

This life in music business got a hold on me
But the lack of friends I have is growing old on me
Ever since they all went cold on me.
I am losing everyone and my old homies,
Kinda getting lonely with the life I'm leading
I am now realizin that there's just no pleasing,
Everyone you love and they all got reasons
Say that they're upset cause your gone all season.
I miss those days, sit and get wasted with your best friend, drinking wine
I know it tasted like 2 dollar piss
But you don't care it's all good cause your friends all there
But you gotta grow up and move on some day
Find a good job and make money some way
But the one night show seems so far away,
I guess I'll still see you 'round the shows I play

So important that we get this in motion
I don't think you understand all the pain and emotion we go through
It's so true
Just ambitious don't mean to insult you
I got big dreams for big things
So Ima stay right here in the big leagues
I still wonder when you'll understand

I put it on my life that one day I'll be good
I'll be driving in the Lexus cruising threw my old hood
On my way to pick you up I'ma fly you out to shows
You can bring all the girls Ima bring all the bros
It's every boys dream to buy their mom a home
I'm sure that she'll be shocked at the money I have blown
So go and tell your friends about the places you have gone
All the new clothes you own eah I swear I put that on
I haven't been around but I swear it gets better
When we make it to the top Ima get us all together
We can party, dance on the beach wind blowing
Sip on your drinks 'til your smiles are showing
Swear to you I haven't been this happy in a while
And It feels good just to say it yeah it's good to see you smile
Be patient baby all of our dreams are coming true
And I promise when we make it that I'm coming back for you

So important that we get this in motion
I don't think you understand all the pain and emotion we go through
It's so true
Just ambitious don't mean to insult you
I got big dreams for big things
So Ima stay right here in the big leagues
I still wonder when you'll understand

So important that we get this in motion
I don't think you understand all the pain and emotion we go through
It's so true
Just ambitious don't mean to insult you
I got big dreams for big things
So Ima stay right here in the big leagues
I still wonder when you'll understand
