"My Uptight Life" as written by and Raymond Mcginley....
The morning sun opens up my eyes
What I see is the same world I know you're seeing
My dreams are real until I realize
Realizing's a slow fade from thought to being
The waking world is full of cynics' sighs
Cynicism's a box I don't want to be in
I'll stay in bed until I stabilize

I try to write this song
To move my life along
I know what I dream of
I'll save my life for love

Hidden meanings don't need to hide
When I hide from the world you're the one who'll find me
They don't need screening from the world outside
If the truth's overdue I know you'll remind me
If the truth police are sniffing out a lie
I've done nothing in life I can't put behind me
I'll use my life as an alibi

Meaning is something I got from you
Whenever I lost the plot you knew
What is it I haven't got
When I've got you

All my life I felt so uptight
Now it's all right.
