Song Lyric Sunday – Left Right Left by Charlie Puth

I’ve been sick for most of this week and haven’t put much thought into this week’s post.  However, I know I need to lighten things up a bit, so I decided to go with another singer I’ve been following recently.  I really like his debut album, Nine Track Mind, and have listened to it a few times.  The lyrics to most of the songs aren’t deep, which is usually my thing, but the music is catchy and has some blues in there.  I almost posted his song, Marvin Gaye, because the music video made me laugh, but I didn’t want to step too far away from what I normally do here.  I did attach the link in case you wanted to check it out though…

I’m probably over-thinking this one anyway.  I tend to do that in general, but almost to a fault when I’m sick.

The reason I picked this particular song is, of course, the lyrics.  I try to always live my life in the present moment.  Bad things happen, but things will not be the same in a week, or a month or a year.  Sometimes, though, all you can do is just take one step and then another until you are finally back on your feet.

I hope you enjoy this week’s Song Lyric Sunday choice.  Feel free to read the “rules” below and post one of your own.  Thanks to everyone currently participating.  I enjoy this so much every week, sharing music with my amazing WordPress family!

Left Right Left by Charlie Puth
Written by Charlie Puth and others
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Oh I been hurting lately
I’m down on all my luck
Sometimes there’s no one there by your side
I don’t deserve this baby
But I know that I can’t give up
Tough times I just take them in stride

I’m almost there, only one more step
Left, right, left, right, left
I’m moving on, I got no regrets
Left, right, left, right, left

I said times are changing, tell me how can I keep up
Every time that I turn around there’s a wall
But I’m climbing daily, until I see the top
And I get up right after every fall
When you’re brokenhearted
And you’re lost without me
Yeah you gotta walk alone, yeah it’s true
Flash every smile cause I’ve been lost for miles
I know you’ve felt this way before too

We’re almost there baby one more step
Left, right, left, right, left
We’re moving on, we got no regrets
Left, right, left, right, left
Left, right, left, right, left
Left, right, left, right, left
We’re almost there only one more step
Left, right, left, right, left

I know it looks like it’s too far
But it’s nothing compared to how far we’ve come
Walking down this boulevard
When the darkest times come right before the sun

We’re almost there baby one more step
Left, right, left, right, left
We’re moving forward and there’s no regrets
Left, right, left, right, left
Left, right, left, right, left
Left, right, left, right, left
We’re almost there only one more step
Left, right, left, right, left
Left, right, left, right, left
Left, right, left, right, left
Left, right, left, right, left
We’re almost there only one more step
Left, right, left, right, left
