great lyrics

This has been a very busy week, so not a lot of posts…. Also, this has been a week of The John Butler Trio, and I love the guys more and more everyday. I now have every album they have every produced! Smoking awesome.

Here is one of my favorite songs, with amazing lyrics!

Artist: The John Butler Trio
Song: Good Excuse

All around I see raining
Things don’t seem to go my way
Got a dark cloud that’s hanging
And it seems to follow me

Oh boy won’t you just wake up
feel the humming
This good world is giving you
better start running
to catch up with your life, catch on up
Before the whole thing is through

Have you once? Have you twice?
Have you even conceived how
Really good boy you do got it
Go take another better look around

You are just another white boy
Thinking you’re so hard
Go take step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world

But you don’t know
how my heart laments
I really got a good excuse
to complain
My parents got divorced
Can’t heal the pain

And now there is only cheap regrets
I guess thats just the way it be
Is it the world or how I see me

Boy now you are really, really bugging
Yes you are bugging me,
can you just shut right up
Your cup is overflowing, overflowing
And you think it is empty

You don’t even know what side
you are fighting for
Boy won’t you turn your game boy off
Stop pretending
it’s you against the world
I am sick and I am tried of hearing
you always say

I really got a good excuse to complain
My parents got divorced
Can’t heal the pain

Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world

  1. Cool song. I’m listening to it right now in the Zune Marketplace. Yes, I’m one of *those* guys. Anyway, good music, thanks for the tip.

  2. Terry, do you remember how you heard about the group? I listened to the songs you posted, searched for more on YouTube, and then bought the live album off of iTunes. Great stuff. I’ve never heard of them before you put up the post earlier in the week.

  3. I have learned finally quitting is actually almost impossible. I introduced myself to smoking while I was a kid. It absolutely was the biggest mistake I’ve made. Today 20 years later and I have lung cancer. I tested out all of the stop smoking tricks but not a thing helped me stop. My last hope will be the e-cigarettes in the end.
