lyrics

She was a friend of mine’s friend
Who I met one night
She said she thought too much
I said that’s alright

It was a different kind of conversation
But an honest one, at that
But what struck me most
Is when she put her hand on my shoulder
And said:

You’ve gotta keep on singing
You have the voice I don’t have
So I guess I will
For that girl

You’ve gotta keep on singing
You have the voice I don’t have
So I will sing higher

You’ve gotta keep on
You’ve gotta keep on

I knew I’d never see her again
That’s not unusual
The way peoples’ lives pass
Through your life so quickly

But what will stick with me
From the person she is
In the person I am
Is what she said

You’ve gotta keep on singing
You have the voice I don’t have
So I guess I will
For the girl I’ll never see again

You’ve gotta keep on singing
You have the voice I don’t have
So I will sing higher
As high as I can

You’ve gotta keep on
You’ve gotta keep on

Mr. Michalski has been recording and performing music since his high school days in 1993. CRANKY is his first non-single release since 2013. ... more
