Friday Song Of The Day – Can’t Get It Right Today

I just can’t seem to get this song out of my head for the past couple of days so it will be today’s Friday Song Of The Day. It’s Can’t Get It Right Today by Joe Purdy from his album, You Can Tell Georgia (2006). Most people will know the song from the Kia Spectra commercial, which you can see after the lyrics (no it’s not a paid advertisement). If you read the lyrics it’s a bit of a depressing song… oh well.

I just can’t seem to get it right today (today)
I just can’t seem to get it right today (today)
I just can’t seem to get it right today
I guess I’m gonna give up
oh, I guess I’m gonna give up

It’s nearly been a year since he’s been gone
we still sing his goodbye songs
and she knows she should move on
but she just can’t let him go
no, she just can’t let him go

I’m sorry if I made you wanna cry
I’m sorry if I made you wanna cry
You should know I never meant to hide
I just hate bringin you down
oh, I just hate bringin you down

I just can’t seem to get it right today
I just can’t seem to get it right today
I just can’t seem to get it right today
I guess I’m gonna give up
oh, I guess I’m gonna give up

And I dropped my paintbrush in the dirt
I’m still numb by just how much I hurt
I cut my hand, wait for it to work
but I just couldn’t bring him back
no, I just couldn’t bring him back

I just can’t seem to get it right today
Oh, I just can’t seem to get it right today
I just can’t seem to get it right today
I guess I’m gonna give up
oh, I guess I’m gonna give up
oh, I guess I’m gonna give up
oh, I guess I’m gonna give up
oh, I guess I’m gonna give up
oh, I guess I’m gonna give up
Oh lord I said I guess I’m gonna give up
Oh lord I said I guess I’m gonna give up
