I'LL GET THERE
whatever happened to all my plans all the fun i was supposed to have where did i go wrong it passed me by i let it slip away by working all the time burning out my mind wasting precious life it's still summer somewhere and i think i better go there (anywhere but here) this could be my last chance for me to change my life it's still summer somewhere and i really need to go there it's still summer somewhere and i'll get there i let love walk out the door cause i don't know how to have any fun i pushed love out the door cause i'm never at ease with anyone no screen no phone no fax work will wait till i get back i'm gone so long i'm never coming back never going back it's still summer somewhere and i think i better go there (anywhere but here) this could be my last chance for me to change my life it's still summer somewhere and i really need to go there it's still summer somewhere and i'll get there it's gone for good not only until next year there will be no next year if i don't get out of here it's still summer somewhere and i think i better go there (anywhere but here) this could be my last chance for me to change my life it's still summer somewhere and i really need to go there it's still summer somewhere (anywhere but here) still summer somewhere (anywhere but here) it's still summer somewhere (any way) and i'll get there

    General CommentYeah, All's not my favorite but this is a great song, about being determined to make a better life for yourself. Totally idealistic, I love it.

    General Comment"I let love walk out the door
    cause I don't know how to have any fun
    I pushed love out the door cause I'm never at ease with anyone"

    The first time I listened to this song and heard these lines I did a double take. It pretty much sums up how my relationships and social life have been a real disappointment to me and a source of depression and anxiety. But, I try to stay focused and I'm still determined to "get there."

    Lyric CorrectionNo line breaks, no punctuation? WTF? Here's a readable version...

    whatever happened to all my plans, all the fun i was supposed to have?
    where did i go wrong?
    it passed me by. i let it slip away
    by working all the time
    burning out my mind, wasting precious life

    (chorus)
    it's just summer somewhere
    and i think i better go there
    (anywhere but here)
    this could be my last chance for me to change my life
    it's just summer somewhere and i really need to go there
    it's just summer somewhere and i'll get there

    i let love walk out the door, cause i don't know how to have any fun
    i pushed love out the door cause i'm never at ease with anyone
    no screen no phone no fax
    work will wait till i get back
    i'm gone so long, i'm never coming back
    never going back

    (chorus)

    it's gone for good, not only 'til next year
    there'll be no next year if i don't get out of here

    (chorus)
