LYRICS: Al Green

“I Can’t Get Next To You”

Occasionally a song will completely take hold of me and I literally listen to it again and again and again and…again. Does that happen to you too? That’s what happened with this song while I was checking out Al Green’s Greatest Hits album. There’s so much sexiness (of course), soul and emotion in the music and in these words:

“I…my my my my
Ohhh I…can turn a grey sky blue
I…You see I can make it rain when I want to
Oh I…can build a castle from a single grain of sand
I…You see I can make a ship sail on dry land

Unhappy am I with all the powers that I possess
cause girl you’re the key to my happiness
and I can’t get next to you babe
can’t get next to you
I’ve been tryin a long time
can’t get next to you
I don’t know what to do…”
