Schwa Lyrics


Lyricist: Dave Katz
Vocalist: Dave Katz

Life was feeling like a high speed chase
Sweet temptation looked me right in the face 
No matter how fast, I could stop on a dime
Buy myself just a little more time

Fast lane seemed to be the place for me
Didn’t take long to get the best of me
Couldn’t find a way to shake that curse
Something wasn’t right in my universe

Rollin’ down that road
Carryin’ that load

Got stopped cold ‘cause I didn’t see the sign
85 miles from the Colorado line
Got no time for a big backlash
Called my lawyer when they found my stash

I showed up and I paid my fine
85 miles from the Colorado line
Luck with me, could’ve been much worse
Something was right in my universe

(Motivate) help me find a way
(To elevation) each and every day
Keep that dream alive, vital inner drive
I’ll drive along as far as I can go

Workin’ hard, and I should rest my bones
Sometimes hard for me to fight that jones
Out all night, and I feel a little sore
Come tomorrow, I’ll be wantin’ some more

Try so hard to keep it all tight
Turn it over, that’ll make it all right
You know that cream gonna rise to the top
Keep on pushin’, never gonna stop


Every day I get a brand new chance
Every day I get to dance that dance
All I know, is when I lay my head
Wanna feel good about the life I’ve lead

Ain’t gotta lotta money, but I gotta lotta hope
Gotta keep pushin’ the envelope
End game, keep it in sight
Look inside to see the guiding light
