I've Got to Use My Imagination
Gladys Knight & The Pips Lyrics


I've really got to use my imagination
To think of good reasons
To keep on keepin' on (keep on keepin' on)

Got to make the best of (best of, best of) a bad situation (bad situation)
Ever since that day (ever since that day) I woke up and found
That you were gone (gone, gone)

Darkness all around me
Blackin' out the sun
Old friends call me
But I just don't feel like talkin' to anyone

Emptiness has found me
And it just won't let me go
Go right on livin'
But why, I just don't know
(You're too strong not to keep on keeping on) Yes, I am

(You're too strong not to keep on keeping on) staring down reality
Don't do me no good
'Cause our misunderstanding
Is too well understood (too well understood)

Such a sad, sad season (sad, sad season)
When a good love dies (when a good love dies)
Not a day goes by (not a day goes by)
When I don't realize (realize)

I've really got to use my imagination (I've got to use)
To think of good reasons (I've got to use)
To keep on keepin' on (I've got to use)

I've got to make the best of (best of, best of) a bad situation (bad situation)
Ever since that day (ever since that day) I woke up and found that you were gone

(You're too strong not to keep on keeping on)
(I've got to use my imagination) my imagination
(I've got to use my imagination) to think of good reasons
(I've got to use my imagination) to keep on pushin' on
I said I've got to make the best of (best of, best of)
Of a bad situation (bad situation)
Ever since that day (ever since that day) I woke up and found that you were gone
(You're too strong not to keep on keeping on) I really got to use
(I've got to use) that imagination, gotta think of good reasons

We would hug-and-squeeze the dear Ramon LeBlanc Harts ... if it were not deemed 'socially questionable'.

Robert Trepagnier

Perfect example of why Gladys Knight is the Empress of Soul.

Gladys Knight is a awesome soul singer....but the Pips ain't no joke either. Those brothers had some of the best harmony in the business.
