Nelson Brothers – (You got me) All shook up

Posted in Nelson Brothers with tags on November 16, 2008 by kJouL

Little by little, you put me in the middle

And I can’t stop the rain falling down

Falling down like my world around me, to drown me

I’m just shakin’ my head, lookin’ for an answer

As I watch all my heartstrings unwind

No, I can’t hide from my worst suspicions,

I’ve listened

To every little tale she tells

Bought every little lie she sells

{Chorus}And now I’m all shook up

‘Cause I’ve been finding out a lot about you, girl

Just running ’round in circles over you, it’s true

Yes, I’m all shook up

You’ve got me all shook up
Minute by minute, got tired of stepping in it

And I can’t ride this train anymore

So what’s in store for a fool and dreamer? I believed her

And now I’m speaking in tongues, lying to the mirror

I’m afraid that I still haven’t learned

Don’t be concerned if you see me crying, it’s only me dyin’

‘Cause everything I had is gone

Everything that’s right’s gone wrong
{Repeat Chorus}
{Bridge}I don’t wanna play, I don’t wanna hear it

Nothing’s gonna change my mind

I say, “Hey, while you’re leavin’, tell me:

What’s so good about good-bye?

Good-bye, well good-bye!”
{Out Chorus}And now I’m all shook up

Finding out a lot about you, girl

Just running ’round in circles, so confused over you

That I’m all shook up

Because I’ve gotta learn to live without you, girl

The promise of tomorrow fades to blue, thanks to you

Yes, I’m all shook up

Because I finally know the truth about you, girl

I’ll get through the darkness

And find the light, but tonight

I’m just all shook up

You’ve got me all shook up
