Hi!

 

I've looked at the lyrics for Procastination that are online and most available, and there are certain passages that don't sound right to me. So here is my version! There are still certain words I just can't figure out, so please help me!

 

I don't catch your drift and I don't catch your plan
Need to get my thoughts down but it's getting late
Need to get up now, get my feet on the ground
But the show ain't simple paramount (?)

 

My place so messed up, I try on some shoes
Should think clear and focus better things to do
Glancing at my CD rack, eyes linger on Frank
And I must put the check in the bank

 

Try to put me in a room, distraction less
(Everything and everything)
Spare me from worse
In the studio I will find a bird
(All the time is all you got)
Tempted to work

 

Always got something to do, someone to be seeing/somewhere to be seen(?)
Somewhere to be dancing, I'm a wake human being
Miss an opportunity, shout till you go blue
Unless I wanna do it, your words go through

 

Need to buy some cigarettes, can't put it off any longer

Work don't appeal, depression I feel is growing stronger

Maybe when I'm all grown up, I will get it through
But right now I got stuff to do

 

Try to put me in a room, distraction less
(Everything is everything)
Spare me from worse
In the studio I will find a bird
(All the time is all you got)
Tempted to work

 

Put me in a room, distraction less
(Everything is everything)
Spare me from worse
In the studio I will find a bird
(All the time is all you got)
Tempted to work

 

Gotta get this song down before I leave tonight
But my hair just does it's own thing and I gotta look alright
And I gotta write a chorus but words allude me now
I have to get this down before I leave somehow

 

And anyway I be thinkin' to meet you at the station
Guilty 'cause I should be home, damn procrastination
So when they ask me later, I won't tell them how it's going
But now my head is empty and the work load keeps on growing

 

Try to put me in a room, distraction less

(Everything is everything)
Spare me from worse
In the studio, I will find a bird
(All the time is all you got)
Tempted to work

 

Put me in a room, distraction less
Spare me from worse
In the studio I will find a bird
Tempted to work

Distraction less
Spare me from worse
I will find a bird
Tempted to work

I think it's "I will find a bird", "I would finally burn" doesn't sound like Amy's writing for some reason.

Yeah I thought that as well. I will find a bird sounds more like her.

I could definitely be wrong, but the beginning sounds to me like "I don't catch your drift and I don't catch your bait" (about blew my eardrums out trying to hear the word "bait" but I'm like 90% sure now, so worth it I guess?)

 

and the chorus sounds more like 

 

"Try to put me in a room, distractionless

Anything and everything

Spare me from work

In the studio, I will find a book

All the time, all you got

Tempts me to look"

 

And then I think it is "Somewhere to be dancing, I'm a weak human being" and "Work don't appeal, depression I feel is growing stronger"

 

Some of that is just based on Tyler James's version of the song, which I know does not have exactly the same lyrics.

"Work don't appeal, depression I feel is growing stronger"

 

This sounds a lot more like it! Good job hearing that one
