lyrics

Gimme One Shot:

It’s getting harder each day
To look you in the eye
You sons and daughters
Just coasting through time
Will you ever understand?
Or will your sun run out?
Gimme One Shot:

I wanna go back to the days
Where they lasted longer yet
You could grab the hand of your pal
And just hang out in the heat
It didn’t matter what you did
It didn’t matter who you are

Gimme one shot
To show you who I am
What I’ve found out
How it’s floating in the air
Can’t you hear it?
Because it’s calling your name
But you won’t see it
Because you’re not going to change
You’ll forever be the same

I used to be lucky in life
Oh I thought I had it all
But then the hands of time fell upon me
Spent seven years in the dark
The drugs and the whiskey
It brought the world on strong

Then love took my hand
Now it don’t matter what I do
It don’t matter who I am
Because I will go out
Picking up cans for nickels and change

Gimme one shot
To show you who I am
What I’ve found out
How it’s floating in the air
Can’t you hear it?
Because it’s calling your name
But you won’t see it
Because you’re not going to change
You’ll forever be the same

I’ve been knocked down
And I’ve lost it all
Been pushed so hard
I couldn’t breathe at all
And the world is the strongest war you’ll face
It will leave you breathless
Make you loose your faith

Gimme one shot
To show you who I am
What I’ve found out
How it’s floating in the air
Can’t you hear it?
Because it’s calling you name
But you won’t see it
Because you’re not going to change
You’re not going to change
