Lucky Boys Confusion - Fred Astaire Lyrics




You can call it anything you want the fact remains the same
I never got to be your Fred Astaire
You can lie to yourself and all your friends and pretend that you don't care
But circumstance gets in the way
You have so many opportunities I never had
Don't push so hard, nothing is ever easy
And this talent that you take for granted, it's a gift from god
Don't pass it up, nothing is ever easy

Are you ready to work real hard
Are you tired it's just the start
Listen to me son, I'll take you far
You can call it anything you want the fact remains the same
I never got to be your Fred Astaire
You can lie to yourself and all your friends and pretend that you don't care
But circumstance gets in the way

Heel, toe, heel, toe, side to side AGAIN, gonna get it right
Don't push so hard, nothing is ever easy
Don't forget your please and thank you's, don't forget to smile
Don't pass this up, nothing is ever easy

Are you ready to work real hard
Are you tired it's just the start
Listen to me son, I'll take you far
You can call it anything you want the fact remains the same
I never got to be your Fred Astaire
You can lie to yourself and all your friends and pretend that you don't care
But circumstance gets in the way

Their pushing these children for all the wrong reasons
So far, man you're crushing down their spirits
You're pushing these children for all the wrong reasons
So far, man you're crushing down their spirits
Suffocate, emancipate, turn their backs and walk away eventually, eventually
They suffocate, emancipate, turn their backs and walk away eventually, eventually

Seeking, seeking, one of these one of these seeking, seeking one of these one of these paths (suffocate, emancipate, turn their backs walk away eventually)

You're wasting time, I call it living
To the world what are you giving
You're wasting time, I call it living
To the world what are you giving
You're wasting time, I call it living
To the world what are you giving
You're wasting time...

You can call it anything you want the fact remains the same
I never got to be your Fred Astaire
You can lie to yourself and all your friends and pretend that you don't care
But circumstance gets in the way
'Cause I never got to be your Fred Astaire no I never got to be your Fred Astair

You can call it anything you want the fact remains the same
I never got to be your Fred Astaire
You can lie to yourself and all your friends and pretend that you don't care
But circumstance gets in the way

    Might want to take your own advice before posting. Fred Astaire was #34 in June 2001.

  16. Matthew Spittle

    sure it's been said here and on many other LBC videos but easily one of the most underrated bands

  17. Defstones

    From the late 80's? Get some facts correct. They were in middle school in the late 80's. I grew up in chicago in the 90's and they were barely out of high school a couple years when this album came out.

  18. Jason Hickerson

    Yeah because radio plays all the awesome songs, I LOVE NICKELBACK!!!!11111!!!!!L/sarcasm

    Yeah, I used to hear those songs on the radio *all* the time. /sarcasm

    As much as I enjoy this band, the fact remains....they never got to be anything more than this song.

    Michael M

    RyanAntiHero I can't even comprehend how wrong you are.

  23. scottcol23

    reminds me of my senior year in high school 1999.

  24. Str8Blast

    @PartyinginMotion dude seriously. pretty much every song on throwing the game was a straight up banger.
