“Formula” (Last One Standing 2007 EP)
This song was written over the course of a couple years from 2005-2006. I remember it took me a little while to complete. I wrote it with the idea in mind, that I was tired and frustrated, as a song-writer, with all of the same crap that was being played on mainstream radio. I actually had started to speculate what the “formula” was for creating a song that might end up on major radio stations. This song is also me questioning the major labels as to what they could even possibly be looking when they sign their artists, as I had been rejected a couple times by the labels, so again, this was my frustration talking.

Verse 1:
Whattya go by
With no formula to abide by
Judging your right and wrong?
Whattya thinking
When I open my mouth and start singing,
Are you liking my sooooooo-ooooong?

There’s gotta be
Another way
Cuz once I put my foot upon thin ice
It just might be too late…

Chorus:
Cuz I’ve been passed up once before
They turned my pages to the floor
Makes me wonder if they’ve ever been read
Around the block and back again
Will this sob story ever end
Makes me wonder what’s going on in their head
yea, yea , yea

Verse 2:
I guess it’s not the end of the world
But I’d like to think so
When I hear those DJs over playing the
Same songs on the radio
And I’m stuck here in this deep deep hole
I need to constantly dig myself out of

Chorus:
Cuz I’ve been passed up once before
They turned my pages to the floor
Makes me wonder if they’ve ever been read
Around the block and back again
Will this sob story ever end
Makes me wonder what’s going on in their head
yea, yea , yea yea, yea

Bridge
Oh whoa, oh woah , woo- oo-o- ah, woo-oo-o-ah
Woo-oo-o-ah, wooooooah
Oh whoa, oh woah , woo- oo-o- ah, woo-oo-o-ah
Woo-oo-o-ah, wooooooah

Chorus:
Cuz I’ve been passed up once before
They turned my pages to the floor
Makes me wonder if they’ve ever been read
Around the block and back again
Will this sob story ever end
Makes me wonder what’s going on in their head

Cuz I’ve been passed up once before
They turned my pages to the floor
Makes me wonder if they’ve ever been read
Around the block and back again
Will this sob story ever end
Makes me wonder what’s going on in their head
yea, yea , yea yea, yea
