about

Until the pandemic, it’s just what we all did.
A drinking song for sure, this is also about busy people everywhere, the life of adventure and hectic deadlines and schedules we were all living, but that kept us moving, and happy, and so gloriously exhausted!
Our extensive research shows it’s best to listen to this track at an elevated volume, physically distanced...
...until it’s safe to dance right next to others, seeing this in person or hearing it play on the radio!

lyrics

THE NEXT BEST THING
by Graham Lindsey & Jordan Coaker

(Intro)
Always running to the next best thing

Never know what tomorrow brings

Let the chorus and choir sing

Always running to the next best thing


(Chorus)

Always running to the next best thing

Never know what tomorrow may bring

Let the chorus and choir sing

Always running to the next best thing


Pile deadlines on my plate

Another Meeting and a coffee date

Keep it coming, I feel great

(No time for slowing down)



Stuck in Ireland at the Gate

One more round of “The Weight”

Our Flight roulette ends in Stalemate
But our feet won’t hit the ground


(Chorus)


Meet for supper after eight

It’s been so long, I can’t be late

My heart is pounding, sure you can relate

For when we hit the town (Buddy just bought a round)


(Instrumental tune: “Paused”)

(Chorus)
