Kicks - Lyrics by Monkees

Well you thought you found your answer     on that magic carpet ride last night  When you wake up in the morning     the world still gets you uptight  There's nothing that you ain't tried     to fill the emptiness inside  But when you come back down girl,     you still ain't feeling right  You think you're going to find yourself     a little bit of paradise  Well it ain't happened yet     so girl you better think twice  Can't you see no matter what you do,     you'll never run away from you  And if you keep on running,     you'll still have the pay the price  Don't you know that     kicks just keep getting harder to find  And all your kicks     ain't bringing you peace of mind  Before you find out it's too late girl,     you better get straight  Nobody told me (kicks)  No, you don't need to help  You face the world each day  That road goes nowhere  I going to help you find yourself another way
