Whichever Whenever

Whichever Whenever
Micah Sommersmith

Life is series of branching paths
Decision theory taught me that
And you get weary, I understand
From choice after choice now

With every turn there’s something to choose
Something to win and something to lose
And sometimes you yearn to wear some other shoes
As the choices press down

But darling please believe that hope is not forsaken
You are not alone in the choices that you’re making

‘Cause whichever you choose, and whenever you do
I’m right beside you
I’m yours all right
Wherever you go, I’ll follow you
I’ll follow through
‘Cause I’m yours all right

Darling please believe that hope is not forsaken
You are not alone in the choices that you’re making

‘Cause whichever you choose, and whenever you do
I’m right beside you
I’m yours all right
Wherever you go, I’ll follow you
I’ll follow through
‘Cause I’m yours all right

Whenever you pull the lever in whichever direction
I’m there for you, I care for you, did I mention
I don’t need a contract with seventy subsections
Stipulating nothing, my support is unquestioned
The best thing about being me is being with you
The rest of the world can see, they know it’s true
If we got a problem, if we got an issue
Stick with me, you’ll see, we’ll see this through

Whichever you choose, and whenever you do
I’m right beside you
I’m yours all right
Wherever you go, I’ll follow you
I’ll follow through
‘Cause I’m yours all right

"Whichever Whenever" - Third Cat

we can take whichever whenever we want (x3)

you and me
can't they see?
we will be
what we believe

I want you
let it all out
it's a sound you can feel
my desire spins around the wheel

I want you
let it all out
it's a sound you can feel
my desire spins around the wheel

we can take whichever whenever we want (x3)

Whichever whenever
Whichever whenever
So the unicorn vomited a rainbow
And it landed in your lap
Now your brand new clothes are day-glo
And your friends say you look like crap
In truth you feel a bit intimidated
Though fashion ain’t black or white
This time you hesitated
‘cause your friends might just be right

Whichever whenever
Whichever whenever

So they take you to the local disco
Though they think you are a clown
With your top and pants all day-glo
But you decide to get down

Whichever whenever
Whichever whenever

First the girlies stand and giggle
They’re amused that you are there
But then they start to bump and wiggle
When you dance like you just don’t care
Whichever whenever
Whichever whenever

Now you’re dancing with an heiress
Because she likes your stuff
And your friends seem a bit embarrassed
‘cause your clothes aren’t colorful enough
Woah,
Drop the Mic , Drop the Beat, Drop Everything

Whichever Whenever
by Lichen Throat

You say you hate the gatekeepers,
So you kick them out of your community.
You say the flu shot makes you sick,
So you never obtain immunity.
Someone’s got to be violent if he owns a knife,
But you’re proud of your new sword.
You tease us with hints about your new life,
Then you say you want to be ignored.
Whichever you choose, it’s the wrong choice.
Whenever you speak, it’s the wrong voice.

You say you grew up so poor
That you’d never tasted a strawberry.
You say your employer can’t fire you
Because you’ve got adult ADHD.
When your candidate loses, you say it’s our fault
And call your friends destructive.
You can’t stop your mouth from spitting out salt,
Don’t you realize you’re counterproductive?
Whichever you choose, it’s the wrong choice.
Whenever you speak, it’s the wrong voice.

Whichever Whenever by Vowl Sounds

you said, let's move to the country
we'll buy some horses and learn to ride
i know we'll feel happy with the sweet earth beneath us
and a hound at our feet by the fireside

I knew I would be with you
forever, forever
so I'd follow any dream with you,
whichever, whenever

you said, let's move to the city
drink the glitter and restlessness down like champagne
let's slip in among the beautiful people
loose-limbed and free to move and to shake

(chorus)

you said i was lacking ambition
just a follower and a dilettante
you said just look at the things i've accomplished
when you don't even know what you want

I thought I would be with you
forever, forever
gave up all my dreams for you,
for nothing, for never

Whichever Whenever
Evil Grin

Verse One:
The sky is full of dark confusion
All around us spins the wind
Should we leave this place tonight?
We can’t end and we can’t begin

Chorus one:
Whichever way you choose to go
Whenever you decide to leave
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
Whichever way you choose
Whenever you decide to leave

Verse two:
It’s getting late and we’re wastin’ time
Gotta get outta this maze
A leap of faith is our only option
To bring us light and lift our haze

Chorus two:
Whichever way you choose to go
Whenever you decide to leave
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you

Bridge:
In the dark of the night
I’m ready
In the bright of the day
I’m ready
In my bed all alone
I’m ready
In the hell where I stay
I’m ready

Chorus Three:
Whichever way you choose to go
Whenever you decide to leave
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
Whichever way you choose
Whenever you decide to leave
Whichever, whenever

Whichever Whenever
Geech Sorensen

God I give up
I can’t fight this anymore
There’s no way I can wage this kind of war
Can we arrive at a shared belief
A struggle like this to end in some relief

Whichever whenever you want
I need some kind of detente
Just think of the damage we brought
Whichever whenever you want

Here we are resentful and demeaned
Is there a way that we can end this clean
But it won’t matter
It’s what has come before
The stories they’ll tell filling up the books of lore

Whichever whenever you want
I need some kind of detente
Just think of the damage we brought
Whichever whenever you want

However whatever you want
I need some kind of detente
A grinding stalemate we fought
Whichever whenever you want

let's get undone
and chase forever
through the forests
of bricks and stones
and metal bones
stay in the zone
I know you've won
there is no trophy
no ribbons
or pot of gold
that shit gets old

whichever comes first
the swelling or the hurt
you pack a punch whenever
treading upon my turf
on my turf
you're treading too damned heavily
so very casually
don't tread on me
just the turf

if you had wings
I'm sure that
you'd still climb
the steps to heaven
instead of fly
you'll be fine
and so will I
or so you'd think
the way we run
we just can't die

we run, and run and run and run and run
we run, and run and run and run and run
we've run, and run and run

a fever dream
under the stream
making good time
over clouds
chasing eternity
and you've found me
you found me

whichever comes first
the swelling or the hurt
you pack a punch whenever
treading the turf
that's my turf
and you're still treading too damned heavily
so very casually
but don't tread on me
just the turf

Whichever Whenever
by Berkeley Social Scene

You don’t have to choose
This or that, you can’t lose
There ain't no good or bad
Don’t let the haters make you mad

Whichever Whenever
Let me see you clap your hands
Whichever Whenever
All across the land

It’s not a spectrum, it’s a grid
Don’t worry, just live and let live
Don’t waste your time being cruel
Let it go and let love rule

Whichever Whenever
Let me see you clap your hands
Whichever Whenever
All across the land

Let me see you clap your hands
Let me see you clap your hands, come on!
Let me see you clap your hands
Let me see you clap your hands, come on!

Everyone is beautiful
Every sound is musical
A million colors in the rainbow
It’s time to let go

Whichever Whenever
Let me see you clap your hands
Whichever Whenever
All across the land

Let me see you clap your hands
Let me see you clap your hands, come on!
Let me see you clap your hands
Let me see you clap your hands, come on!
