​Gonna Take a Lot to Stay

This song is by The Churchills and appears on the album You Are Here (2000).

(Ron Haney)

I'm stuck in one gear
Caught spinning wheels where're we going
It's not been all you said it's gonna be

Black coffee mornings
Blues station sings "I must be going"
I'm stuck in one gear drifting out to sea

But I still have my clothes there
I still have my 8 tracks
And it's gonna take a lot to stay
(Something's got to give)
It's gonna take a lot to stay ('cause I just can't live)
With you

My brothers tell me
You can't stay with one girl forever
I know they're out there laughing at me

'Cause I still have my skates there
I still want my cat back
And it's gonna take a lot to stay
(Something's got to give)

It's gonna take a lot to stay ('cause I just can't live)
With you

I'm stuck in the ring without my gloves
Punch drunk and hit below the belt

You still have my Beach Boys
I still want my half stack

And it's gonna take a lot to stay
(Something's got to give)
