SOME OF THE THINGS
words & music by MAINTAIN

This is the time I'd like to feel
Where did the time go my friends?
It would nice to unmess me here
Why did the days pass so fast?
They say relax and go with the flow
But they don't seem to move very
It's such a drag when truth is told
It leads everybody astray

Some Of The Things
left behind hurt in the worst way
nothin' could be done, nothin' could be done
Those were the days
when everything was movin' the right way
movin' the right way

Take that doo-rag baby
and drop it where you stand
Is this a relationship of girl meets man
I got no time
for this competing with the pros
Is this the consequence
of depleting what is slow
They say relax and go with the flow
But my mind slows down to a creeping roll
Is this out of control? I ask myself

Some Of The Things
left behind hurt in the worst way
nothin' could be done, nothin' could be done
Those were the days
when everything was movin' the right way
Movin' the right way hey

Some Of The Things, Some Of The Things
Some Of The Things, Some Of The Things
Some Of The Things, Some Of The Things, Some Of The Things
Some Of The Things, Some Of The Things

Some Of The Things
left behind hurt in the worst way
Nothin' could be done, nothin' could be done
Those were the days
when everything was movin' the right way
Movin' the right way hey

Some Of The Things
left behind hurt in the worst way
Nothin' could be done, nothin' could be done
Those were the days
when everything was movin' the right way
Movin' the right way hey

yeah
Great tune, and pretty sexy sounding groove.

I could visualize a cool soulful B3 organ coming in at some places. Do you use that sometimes? Think it would add a sassy edge to your smooth sound;)

The bridge was funky and cool with the rhodes peaking out there.

Good job!
