Gonna Tell Everyone To Lighten Up

 

Soak Up The Sun

By Sheryl Crow

 

Here’s a live 2005 acoustic version by Sheryl Crow:

My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can’t afford his gas
So Im stuck here watching TV.

Breathtaking view of Silver Lake

I dont have digital
I dont have diddly squat
It’s not having what you want
It’s wanting what youve got.

I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up

I’m going to tell them that
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna soak up the sun.

I’ve got a crummy job
It don’t pay near enough
To buy the things it takes
To win me some of your love.
Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do.

I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up
I’m going to tell them that

I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
While its still free
I’m gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me.

Don’t have no master suite
I’m still the king of me
You have a fancy ride, but baby
I’m the one who has the key.
Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe I am crazy too.

I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up.

I’m gonna soak up the sun
Got my 45 on
So I can rock on.
