Get It Right

Should've been a big wheel
Could've been a big deal
Everybody knows me but that don't mean nothin'
Could've been long gone
Should've left a light on
Maybe I'm all wrong and that's got me thinkin'

Wasn't I a great clown
So what if I break down
What are these questions and what does it matter
Skippin' through a mind field
Trippin' over lips sealed
Hide behind a big shield and wait 'til the smoke clears

Hey I've been wrong but it's alright
Hey I've been down but not uptight
And who knows there's a chance I just might
Get it right, get it right, get it right

Slippin' down a slick slope
Reachin' for a real rope
Tryin' to reinvent hope and walkin' a tightwire
Think I need a stand in
What have I got my hands in
Recklessly abandoned and hopelessly tired

Hey I've been wrong but it's alright
Hey I've been down but not uptight
And who knows there's a chance I just might
Get it right, get it right, get it right

Everybody seems to have it all worked out
Me, I'm just wondering what it's all about
But I've still got some time left to figure it out

Dancin' in a downpour
Waitin' for a big score
Wonderin' what the hell for, and where is life's thunder
Someone better wake me
Rattle and shake me
Drain this dead sea I'm slipping down under

Hey I've been wrong but it's alright
Hey I've been down but not uptight
And who knows there's a chance I just might
Get it right, get it right, get it right
