Way you look at me like that
Something's got to give pretty soon
Throw it on a camel's back
Something's got to give pretty soon

Living hard to chase the dream
Way beyond our ways and means
Yours don't mean a goddamn thing
That's what you said but don't believe it

Shattered look upon your face
Something's got to give pretty soon
Swallow but can't stand the taste
Bark at the wind, chase the moon

Living fast and drinking lots
List of things we haven't got
Tired of life with the have-nots
That's what you said and I believe it

Maybe what you need's
For someone to send you flowers
Someone strong and mean
Who can prove he has the power

To show you more than charm
And take you on your way
To where you want to be
At the end of the day

It breaks my heart in two
To know it ain't meant to be
But it ain't me, it ain't me

You say it's these things I do
About me that's attracted you
So if I started doing something else
What would we have left

And you say you just want compromise
Then act so different all the time
These reasons why you said goodbye
Just another way of telling lies

Something's got to give, got to give pretty soon
Or else we're gonna lose the very things that made it bloom
Sitting in silence in a cold and lonely room
While the world goes on around us

Something's got to give, got to give pretty soon
Or else we're gonna hate each other
And that would be the saddest thing I ever seen

PATTERSON HOOD, EARL HICKS, BRAD MORGAN, JASON ISBELL, JOHN COOLEY
