Idea Man (live)

from songs from Wheelhouse by GrooveLily



Video for this song: youtu.be/X8x0PsnS-bk
Getting the RV was Brendan's idea, and now that the RV is no longer functional, Brendan is...out of ideas.


Idea man
plays in your band
keeps you on track.
When you're in doubt
he helps you out,
he's got the knack,
yes, indeed.

Idea man,
he's got a plan
to light up the night.
When something's wrong
he won't take long,
he'll make it right,
yes, indeed.

But if his way
leads you astray
what can he say to make amends?
Then his mistake
keeps him awake
it makes him think he's betrayed his dearest friends.
No ideas,
just dead ends.

Idea man
lately began
living in doubt.
Stuck standing still,
he never will
find his way out.
No, no, no.

Idea man
can't understand
why he can't see
used to belong
used to be strong
used to be me,
yes, indeed.

And now this clown
has let you down
I can't depend on anything I know
I take the blame
I am so ashamed.
I can't believe I brought the ones I love so low.
No idea
where to go.
