Lyrics - Next Time Around


All These Years

by Sean Wiggins © 2001

I've been driving
Down this highway
No where particular to go
I've been riding
With a vengeance
I Got to get somewhere somewhere's all I know

I say:
Help me Help me help me get back
Place I call home
& I say:
Help me Help me Help me get back
Place I belong

I was walking
Down a tree-lined street
Smell of winter in the air
Peeking through the windows
Listening at the doors
Hoping there's an answer they might share I say:
Help me Help me help me get back
Place I call home
& I say:
Help me Help me Help me get back
Place I belong Stranger in a stranger world
Like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole I've been looking
On the outside
Trying to find a little bit of strength within But don't you know
The grass is always greener
And to covet is the most deadliest of sins So I sat myself down
In an old wooden chair
For a very serious conversation Told myself that home, home is where the heart is
And as far as I know it's always been in exactly the same location
All these years Chorus out

What If

by Sean Wiggins © 2001

Thinking 'bout the yesterdays
Like I'm chasing my tail
If I'd chosen different ways
Would I have another tale to tell Maybe I could turn back time
Maybe I could change
I'm saying What if… repeat Thinking how I had behaved
How I was such a bore
I was distant and controlling
When I could have given so much more If I said I'm sorry
Would I still be here now
Just saying What if I'm thinking bout you
Wondering what if there was something I could do
This broken Romance
What if we could find a second chance But What if doesn't count
In horse-shoes or checkers
Especially in this game called life
Oh mostly especially in this game called life Thought about the one word
It was a word we couldn't say
Forever is a hard one
And often winds up in the way Oh it doesn't seem so scary
And here I 'm left again with
Just saying What if….I'm saying what if My life is unpredictable
I don't really have a plan
maybe I should be alone
And that's right where I am I'm talking to myself Saying the same ol, same ol things I'm saying What if……..oh I'm saying what if I'm thinking bout you
Wondering what if there was something I could do
This broken Romance
What if we could find a second chance But What if doesn't count
In horse-shoes or checkers
Especially in this game called life
Most Especially in this game called life Hind sight may be 20 20
But it don't do you no good
Maybe next time around I'll remember
I haven't yet, I'm hoping someday I could Chorus out

Next Time Around

by Sean Wiggins © 2001

Shot down
Broken and bruised
Kicked around
And even lied to Told to go
I've been begged stay
Spun upside down
And left to hang that way But I gotta believe, gotta believe
I'll get it right
Right next time around
Right next time
Right next time I've always been
Quite naïve
Trust every word
Wearing my heart on my sleeve Well I'd wind up
In a puddle of tears
You'd think I woulda learned
After so many years But I gotta believe, gotta believe
I'll get it right
Right next time around
I'll get it right next time
Right next time I think you're lookin so fine
I don't want to cross that line
Ooooh you might just run away
I say Baby don't go - it's alright
It won't hurt ya to stay So we'll Talk a while
We'll take it slow
Go to the movies
And see how it goes I'll say a prayer
And I'll try my best
Make it all work out
I want to pass this test 'Cause I gotta believe, gotta believe
I'll get it right
Right next time around
Don't want to make a wrong turn now
I'll get it right this time Gotta learn
How to keep my cool
After so many burns
I start to feel like a fool Clear my mind
And Open my heart
Not give a damn
If it all falls apart No, I've gotta believe, gotta believe
I'll get it right
Right next time around
Right next time
Get it right next time
There's a light it's up ahead, it's shining bright
Oh baby - it's gunna be alright
I'll get it right next time - vamp out

No Difference

by Sean Wiggins © 2001

Verse:
Would it make a difference
If I told you I was sorry
Would it make a difference
If I changed the words of my story Chorus:
Oh it would be no use
I'd still be misunderstood
Wouldn't make a difference
It'd do you no damn good Verse:
Would it make a difference
If I sang you a very sad song
Would it make a difference
If I told you how I'd done you so wrong Oh it would be no use
I'd still be misunderstood
Wouldn't make a difference
It'd do you no damn good Wish there was some way I could ease your pain
Tell ya I might as well go & try and stop the rain
But I can't change yesterday
Angry words get in the way
Wouldn't make a difference
Wish there was something I could say Tell me it might make a difference
If I shouted out to the whole world
How I'd been such a fool
How I'd been such a very very bad girl Oh it would be no use
I'd still be misunderstood
Wouldn't make a difference
It'd do you no damn good

My Best Friend

by Sean Wiggins © 2001

I'd like to introduce you
To a good friend of mine
You're gunna have to get along
If you wanna spend some time
It's not that I'm callous
And I don't like to fight
But if you mess around with my friend
I've sure been known to bite
Because: Boop bob boop bop I'd like to be your best friend too
If I can't perform the duties
I've got something for you
If you're feeling out of sorts
Or maybe under the weather
I've got just the thing that's gunna make you feel better Cause my best friend
I keep it locked in the cabinet
It helps me up when I'm feeling low
My best friend
I keep it in my back pocket
It makes it better when I'm feeling…….Feeling oh I'm feeling low low low low
Don't want to know know know know
I gotta go go go go go
Come on best friend, let's get… Doop bob doop…. If you catch me tweaking darling
Don't take a fright
You know, with the proper dosage
I'll be ok by tonight
Maybe you would like to take a little trip with me
We'll get all the way there with a capital C Well, don't think I'm lying
Don't you misconstrue
'Cause baby I think maybe
I might be in love with you
Please don't try to get too close
You might bump into my best friend, the one I love the most Cause my best friend
I keep it locked in the cabinet
It helps me up when I'm feeling low
My best friend
I keep it in my back pocket
It makes it better when I'm feeling…….Feeling oh wow Doop bop doop bob This story that I tell
Is from my point of view
It's a social commentary
On my prospects with you
I couldn't play second
To your best friend
So now I sing this song
And that's how it's gotta end Cause your best friend
You keep it locked in the cabinet
It helps you up when you're feeling low
Your best friend
You keep it in my back pocket
It makes it better when you're feeling…….Feeling oh no

Before I Fall

by Sean Wiggins © 1999

Something your eyes
Gave me butterflies
Now my heart's beating like a child again Something in your voice
It's leaving me absolutely no choice
I haven't had this feeling since I can't remember when So I've got to find the door
Catch a plane
I've been in love before
And I don't want to get on the wrong train 'Cause I aye aye aye aye
I've got to get away
I've got to leave today, yea
Before I fall back
Before I fall back in love again
(Repeat entire chorus) Is there something in the air
I'm trying so hard not to care
I'm thinking about you and that's absolutely the only thing I'm wishing on all of the stars
That I didn't have to fall so far
Here I sit waiting for that telephone to ring So I've got to find the door
Catch a plane
I've been in love before
And I don't want to get on the wrong train 'Cause I aye aye aye aye
I've got to get away
I've got to leave today, yea
Before I fall back
Before I fall back in love again
(Repeat entire chorus) Keep my eyes down to the ground
So I can't see what I have found
I don't think I can hold on much longer
Seems my heart's growing stronger & stronger Chorus out

Hopeful

by Sean Wiggins & Billy Cioffi © 2001 BMI

( Verse 1)
I'm not rich
I'm not well known
Sometimes that hurts
Down to the bone But even in my darkest night
I reach my hands out toward the light
Hopeful Verse 2)
I don't need
The world at my feet
Knowing I've been loved
Makes me complete Though the gray clouds block the sun
I wish blue skies for everyone
Hopeful Bridge:
There are days in my worried mind
I want to walk away, leave all this behind
But something deep within holds me here
It's your sweet love shining bright and clear Verse 3)
My soul gets heavy
My heart grows weak
I want to say something
But I don't speak Years go by, they ebb and flow
Please know it's your love that keeps me so
Hopeful

Enjoy The Ride

by Sean Wiggins © 2001

Through the highways and the byways
From coast to coast, cross the great divide
On a road with no clear destination
Wanna to pull over and say you tried Out of gas and out of light
Feels like you're losing time
Locked up in your mind so tight
The view is just a traffic sign Saying stop or go
You should take it slow
Careful 'cause the rocks are falling
Curves ahead there's danger calling
Warning lights are flashing in your eyes
Oh you can't turn back you might as well enjoy the ride Staring straight ahead for so long
You can't see from side to side
A figure rising in the mist
Say it's just the heat, it's all a lie Don't swerve, don't speed, don't pass
Don't cross the double lines
Don't lose your trusty map
You just might miss those traffic signs Saying stop or go
You should take it slow
Careful 'cause the rocks are falling
Curves ahead there's danger calling
Warning lights are flashing in your eyes
Oh you can't turn back you might as well enjoy the ride Roll down your window
Wave to the garbage man
Try to gain a little wisdom,
Anyway you can Dare to make mistakes
Try to speak your mind
And if you disagree
Don't be afraid to paint your own signs Saying stop or go
You should take it slow
Careful 'cause the rocks are falling
Curves ahead there's danger calling
Warning lights are flashing in your eyes
Oh you can't turn back you might as well enjoy the ride

Unrequited

by Sean Wiggins © 2001

Of all my wishes, why can't one come true
A little wish that might just happen to be you I don't need the moon
I'm not looking for a star
I can't see beyond my feet
No, I can't look that far But from the darkness of my lonely heart
I heard your voice, I felt the spark Of all my dreams why can't this one be real
I can almost taste it, I know just how it could feel Maybe I'm just crazy
Going quite insane
I'm certain that I'm mixed up
With this churning in my brain But from the four walls, Of my empty heart
I heard your voice, I felt the spark But for now you're just my fantasy
I'm quite aware you'll never notice me
Really that's ok
It's easier that way
Fantasy won't hurt me in the end Of all my choices, why can't this one be
The one that worked out right for once, that turned out perfectly I know it's just no use
It's only in my mind
Still I think you'd feel the same
If we could spend some time But thru the pieces of my broken heart I heard your voice, I felt the spark But for now you're just my fantasy
I'm quite aware you'll never notice me
Really that's ok
It's easier that way
Fantasy won't hurt me in the end Bridge:
Driving down the coast
We smell a cool ocean breeze
Standing at the water's edge
Sand beneath our feet Pictures in my head
Closest I've found yet
To the real thing
Till I forget But for now you're just my fantasy
I'm quite aware you'll never notice me
Really that's ok
It's easier that way
Fantasy won't hurt me in the end
Fantasy makes quite the perfect friend Of all my wishes, why can't one come true

Don't Worry, Why Bother

by Sean Wiggins © 2001

Standing in the shadows
Of broken dreams and fears
Questioning your choices
Have you wasted all these years Fantasizing fortune
A little chance at fame
Staying up late late nights
The players in this game A game that's like the lottery
Where no one's meant to win
If you play it long enough
You'll find the strength within To hide your disappointments
You take your luck in stride
Sure that all your expectations
Aren't too much for the ride So - Don't worry Why bother
It's absolutely clear
That the future of tomorrow
Is not something you can fear Be mellow, try harder
Cuzz you've cried too many tears
You've got to take a break and shed the weight
You've carried all these years A pillar of society
Is something you are not
At times you think conformity
Might get you what they've got Take a look inside your heart
It's there the answer lies
You are just a dreamer
Not a master of disguise So - Don't worry Why bother
It's absolutely clear
That the future of tomorrow
Is not something you can fear Be mellow, try harder
Cuzz you've cried too many tears
You've got to take a break and shed the weight
You've carried all these years Bridge:
Feel the wind in your hair
The sun on your skin
Open up your mind
Let a little nothing wander in Wake up with the sunrise
A new day has begun
Time to forget yesterday
Imagine the battle's won Put on your favorite shoes
Go find your lucky hat
If your attitude is positive
You can't have more than that So - Don't worry Why bother
It's absolutely clear
That the future of tomorrow
Is not something you can fear Be mellow, try harder
Cuzz you've cried too many tears
You've got to take a break and shed the weight
You've carried all these years
