Jim Lauderdale - Don't Let Yourself Get in the Way

Yeah you're looking kind of lonely
We all get that way, don't we?
Everybody goes through that kind of thing
Where nothing seems like it's working
And there's an extra kind of hurting
Looking for the answers that we may

It goes around, and around, and around again
This being down, staying down
There's more to life my friend
When you're wanting to change
'Cause today's a different day
Don't let yourself get in the way

If there was the right invention
That could make a right intention
More than honourable mentions awake
Give yourself a little credit
And grab it when you get it
And try to give more than you take

It goes around, and around, and around again
This being down, staying down
There's more to life my friend
When you're wanting to change
'Cause today's a different day
Don't let yourself get in the way

When you're arguing with that enemy inside
Sometimes it's hard to say goodbye

Yeah to watch somebody blossom
Well that's nothing short of awesome
When they hear the mirror say

It goes around, and around, and around again
This being down, staying down
There's more to life my friend
When you're wanting to change
'Cause today's a different day
Don't let yourself get in the way
Don't let yourself get in the way
