“Kicks” Lyrics

You thought you found the answer on that magic carpet ride last night
But when you wake up in the morning, the world still gets you uptight
Well, there’s nothing that you ain’t tried
To fill the emptiness inside
But when you come back down
You still ain’t feelin’ right

And it seems like kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late
You better get straight
But not with kicks
You just need help now

You think you’re gonna find yourself a little piece of paradise
But it ain’t happened yet, so now you better think twice
Don’t you see no matter what you do
You’ll never run away from you
If you keep on running
You’ll have to pay the price

Don’t it seem like kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late
You better get straight
But not with kicks

To help you face the world each day
That road goes nowhere
I’m gonna help you find yourself another way

Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find (You don’t need kicks, now)
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind (You just need help now)
Before you find out it’s too late
You better get straight (You better, you better, you better)

Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find (You don’t need kicks, now)
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind (You just need help now)
Before you find out it’s too late
You better get straight (You better, you better, you better)

Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late
You better get straight
