about

Just the truth of it...

lyrics

Nothing's ever perfect, even when it seems to be
my heart holds me together, but my mind's on a different team

And I can’t even find time to shine
I can’t even find time to shine
No, no, no

You captured me completely, damned if I know why
When I should be concentratin’ - concentratin’ on me and mine

If time were money, you know I’d pay any price
Cause things that make me crazy, turn out so damned right

But I can’t even find time to shine
You know I can’t even find time to shine
No, no, no

It’s hard to watch you dance
when I’m not allowed to touch
I’ve never felt a feeling
tear me up so much

Even music don’t rock me like you
Even the blues don’t leave me sh-sh-shakin’ when I’m through
I know the music, it don’t rock me like you
Even music don’t rock me like you do

Don’t you know I’ve got time enough for trouble,
and passion on my mind
We gotta talk, cause I gotta tell you, I’m just a little unrefined

I take you to a restaurant, candlelight and a little wine
But you've got friends lit’rally everywhere, and I can't find time to shine.

You know I can’t even find time to shine
I can’t even find time to shine
No, no, no

It’s hard to watch you dance
when I’m not allowed to touch
I’ve never felt a feeling
tear me up so fuckin’ much

Even music don’t rock me like you
Even the blues don’t leave me sh-sh-shakin’ when I’m through
I know the music, it don’t rock me like you do
Even music don’t rock me like you
I know the music, it don’t rock me like you do
Even music don’t rock me like you

about

Schweitzer Los Angeles, California

My brother started writing songs and that was the spark that started me on my own songwriting course that would last the rest of my life. I chose to use my surname, "Schweitzer," for practical reasons, realizing long ago that pronouncing "Richard Schweitzer" was difficult. "Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
