Couldn't Get It Right
Time is driftin', this rock has got to roll
So I hit the road and made my getaway
Restless feeling, I really gotta hold
I started searching for a better way

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn't see the light, no I couldn't see the light
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night
But I couldn't get it right, I couldn't get it right

LA fever, made me feel alright
But I must admit it got the best of me
Gettin' down, so deep I nearly drowned
I can't get back to where I used to be

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn't see the light, no I couldn't see the light
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night
But I couldn't get it right, no I couldn't get it right

New York City, took me with the tide
I nearly died from hospitality
Left me stranded, and took away my pride
Just another know it all fatality

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn't see the light, no I couldn't see the light
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night
But I couldn't get it right, no I couldn't get it right

Yeah I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn't see the light, no I couldn't see the light
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night
But I couldn't get it right, no I couldn't get it right

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn't see the light, no I couldn't see the light
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night
But I couldn't see the light, 'cause I couldn't get it right

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn't see the light, no I couldn't see the light
I kept on lookin' for a way to take me through the night
