Keep Swingin'

Album: Youth Authority (2016)
  • I had nothing to say
    'Cause I could never fake it
    So I just stood by
    And I watched all them take it
    If we lose our way
    We will learn how to shake it
    All that shit that fucks you up
    We learn to knock it off and just walk away

    'Cause you know we ain't got no soul now
    Even when they said we sold out
    We keep swingin' and we all just go down
    Saying and playing what we think
    'Cause you know we ain't got no soul now
    Even when they said we sold out
    We keep swingin' and we all just go down
    Saying and playing what we think

    You and I will work it out somehow
    Come on, come on
    See the look on your face
    Yeah, I know what you're thinking
    So should I even waste my time?
    Stop the words before they sink in
    You know your love is saying
    That you're never gonna change
    Well, artists sell their soul
    Bottles of pills, and empty spaces

    'Cause you know we ain't got no soul now
    Even when they said we sold out
    We keep swingin' and we all just go down
    Saying and playing what we think
    'Cause you know we ain't got no soul now
    Even when they said we sold out
    We keep swingin' and we all just go down
    Saying and playing what we think

    I'm not gonna spend today
    Thinking about whatever happened yesterday
    I don't wanna let love slip away
    'Cause you've been gone awhile
    She will stay, she's here to stay

    And you know we ain't got no soul now
    Even when they said we sold out
    We keep swingin' and we all just go down
    Saying and playing what we think
    'Cause you know we ain't got no soul now
    Even when they said we sold out
    We keep swingin' and we all just go down
    Saying and playing what we think

    You and I will work it out somehow
    Come on, come on
    You and I will work it out somehow
    Come on, come on Writer/s: JOHN WILLIAM FELDMANN, BENJI MADDEN, JOEL MADDEN, KELLIN QUINN
