Make It Right

(performed by Stacy Donahue)
written by Stacy Donahue & Tom Sparks
I woke up late, I'm going to miss the bus,
Another day I'll have to fight the rush.
My paycheck comes but the money's gone,
Why do I feel I'm doing things all wrong?

Spilled coffee on my clean white shirt,
While I'm sittin here thinkin' why he left me for her.
No more point in cryin' any tears,
I need to get out of here.

I wanna have a life, where I don't feel everything passin' by.
Take time out to gaze at stars, and watch the sunrise.
I'm gonna take this crazy life that I call mine,
And I'm gonna make it right.

Car's packed now, I got my keys turned in,
The radio's up, I can feel the wind.
My only compass is in the sky,
There's not a care in my mind.

I wanna have a life, where I don't feel everything is passin' by.
Take time out to gaze at stars, and watch the sunrise.
I'm gonna take this crazy life that I call mine,
And I'm gonna make it right.

No more sounds of busy streets, I want to hear the church bells ring.
Take long walks, say "Hello", stop and talk,
See what the good life can bring, what the good life can bring.

I wanna have a life, where I don't feel everything passin' by.
Take time out to gaze at stars, and watch the sunrise.
I wanna have a life, where I don't feel everything passin' by.
Take time out to gaze at stars, and watch the sunrise.
I'm gonna take this crazy life that I call mine,
I'm gonna take this crazy life that I call mine,
And I'm gonna make it right.
