It's All I Can Do Lyrics - The Cars

Review The Song (3)

one too many times
i fell over you
once in a shadow
i finally grew
and once in a night
i dreamed you were there
i cancelled my flight
from going nowhere
it's all i can do
to keep waiting for you
it's all i can do
one too many times
i twisted the gate
when i was crazy
i thought you were great
i kept my renditions
sponsored links
of you on the wall
where holiday romance
is nothing at all
you wait in the wing
like a saturday flirt
protecting the judge
you don't want to get hurt
once in a moment
it all comes to you
as soon as you get it
you want something new

THE Best Cars Song, in my ope, (fellow) schmopes. | Reviewer: Alex | 9/14/11

Not only the great musical song-structure of perhaps any of their song (the way they drop the tone and intensity of the synths down just a bit after the understated guitar solo break, the expected cool fade out, the whole shebang), it also has these other qualities: (1) an express mood of loss, displaying a certain level of yearning and maturity to the music, bringing it an emotional depth not as obvious on any of their earlier songs released only 12 months earlier; and 2) that it centers perhaps the band's best vinyl album side. Rock Music of the seventies, in general, was concerned with the album aspect of the creative art and, in my opinion, "Candy O" is every bit of an incredible body of work as the first album.
I also like the way the song's first millisecond seems to start like it's "coming from somewhere" like from the middle of another song or something.
As AMG Rock Music guide says, this song deserved to be a hit record and should have been on their original Greatest Hits album.

You said it all Greg, one of my favs is when "moving in stereo" transitions into "all mixed up". The Cars were one of the bands to usher in the techno age, while maintaining a rock image. Whatever instrument they played was precision, crisp and clear. A real good canidate for 420 happy hour,LOL

One of the best Cars songs | Reviewer: Greg W. | 3/16/09

Just had to say, I think this is one of the greatest Cars songs. The instrumentation - keyboards, guitars, drums all just fit. Also, Ric Ocasek shows he's better than your average rock lyricist in this one. The Cars really were best in their earliest period. Just beautiful.
