Eventually Never Comes

Copyright © 2003 Kelli Caldwell


Texte alternatif

All he really wanted was to be a local player
To meet up with his guitar at a favorite jammin' spot
All he really needed was to get up on a stage
But he kept on saying, "Eventually"


Eventually never comes
Don't say it
Eventually never comes
Don’t play it
Eventually never comes, you'll see
Eventually loves to/gonna bleed your dreams
Eventually never comes
Eventually never comes


All she really wanted was to be decision-maker
To serve the local flavor at her own coffee shop
All she really needed was to take a little risk/quit and take the risk
But she kept on saying, "Eventually"


Eventually never comes
Don't buy it/
Eventually never comes
Go try it
Eventually's gonna swim/on a trip up stream
Eventually loves to bleed your dreams
Eventually never comes
Eventually never comes


All they really wanted was to exercise their dreams
But they couldn't seem to get beyond the stage of possibility
Then one day they bonded, as they were wearing black
A mutual acquaintance died of a heart attack—at 43
And in each other eyes, they could/came to recognize
A similar confusion, a similar anxiety
We've got to try—
Before we die—
We've got to try


All he really wanted was to see her cut the ribbon
To welcome in the locals to her Jammin' Java Spot
And as she started pouring, he set up on the stage
Then she introduced him, and he started to play—


Eventually never comes
Get to it
Eventually never comes
Can do it


Eventually never comes
Eventually never comes
