Just A Phase

  • I am bottled fizzy water
    And you were shaking me up
    You are a fingernail running
    Down the chalkboard I thought I left in third grade
    Now my only consolation
    Is that this could not last forever
    Even though you're singing and thinking how well you've got it made

    Who are you?
    And will you be through
    Yeah, it's just a phase
    It will be over soon
    Yeah, it's just a phase
    Yeah, it's just a...phase

    Call it women's intuition
    But I think I'm on to something here
    Temporary-ism has been the bad thing
    And the Jesus of our age
    I know that I sound opinionated
    Maybe biased and quite possibly jaded
    But sooner than later they'll be throwing quarters at you on the stage

    Who are you?
    And will you be through
    Yeah, it's just a phase
    It will be over soon
    Yeah, it's just a phase
    Yeah, it's just a...phase

    And I am waiting for it to be over too Writer/s: ALEX KATUNICH, BRANDON BOYD, BRANDON CHARLES BOYD, CHRISTOPHER KILMORE, JOSE ANTHONY II PASILLAS, JOSE PASILLAS II, MICHAEL AARON EINZIGER, MICHAEL EINZIGER

  • Ashley from Moncton, CanadaThis has gotta be my favourite song off Morning View. I used to have it as the CD my clock radio played in the morning, and it always got me in a good mood for the day.
  • Bruce Whitehill from Ny, NyThe Fleetwoods' 1959 "Come Softly to Me" has been my number 1 song for 45 years!
