about

Wrong Side of Dawn Highland Park, New Jersey

New Jersey-based songwriting duo Nelson Pavlosky and Brian Rose carefully craft complex songs in the classic rock tradition with an alternative vibe. If you smashed The Who into The Goo Goo Dolls, you might get Wrong Side of Dawn. Or you might get a fistfight between Johnny Rzeznik and Roger Daltrey. Either way you can't lose! ... more

Track Name: Baseball
Level swing, don't aim for the wall.
Keep your eye upon the ball.
Some days the world is small
And in control.

Someday mom and dad
Might let you play an extra hour.
Someday a girl might kiss you.
You might grow up strong to hit for power.

But the fence is pretty far today.
Baseball can be cruel that way.

Some days your skill is no avail
When seven times in ten, we are just learning how to fail.
American dreams never come but they don't go to waste.
Some dreams ain't meant to come true; they're just out there to be chased.

Close up shop and head for home,
My sunken-eyed and handsome man.
Anyone can understand
The way you feel.

So, don't try to pretend
That you never took that fall.
There's some things I believe
Are common to us all.

When every man is just a boy
Who never made it in baseball.

Some days your skill is no avail.
When seven times in ten, we are just learning how to fail.
American dreams never come but they don't go to waste.
Some dreams ain't meant to come true; they're just out there to be chased.

Keep your eye upon the ball,
Make your heroes and watch them fall.
At the end of it all,
Some things don't change.

Smell of grass, feel of sun.
Cracking sound of ash wood.
Sometimes I think life...
Sometimes life is pretty good.

But there's not much time to play today.
Sometimes life is cruel that way.

Some days your skill is no avail.
And seven times in ten, we are just learning how to fail.
Put your helmet, and come back to the plate.
American dreams do not die. There's places where they still wait.
Track Name: If I Ever Loved
I just can't talk to you anymore because
Between some words I can still hear that pause
A space left for questions that you don't know how to say
I can't answer, but I can still hear that space anyway

I don't know if I've ever loved something
Yeah, I'm just not sure
Once things get behind you, well, it's hard to tell
How close you ever really were

An old man tells how years ago he took some young girl out
Kissed her for the first time and they never had a doubt
He still likes to tell how it feels to look into her eye
But me... I am not like this guy

See, I don't know if I've ever loved something.
Yeah, I'm just not sure.
Once things get behind you, well, it's hard to tell
How close you ever really were.

But I say, if I ever loved something,
I could not have suffered for not loving it enough.
And if I've ever loved something, I ain't stopped.
I just had to spend time on other stuff.

Do you think that you've ever loved something?
Or are you not sure?
Just thought, well, you could tell me, now,
How close we ever really were.

'Cause I know it's off. I just don't know how to turn it on.
I know I had a chance. I know it's gone.
I'm in no position to tell you what to do.
Don't know if I ever loved anything. If I did, it was you.

And if I ever loved something,
I could not have suffered for not loving it enough.
If I have ever loved you, I ain't stopped.
I just spent some time on other stuff.

And I say... Well, I say if I ever loved something,
I could not have suffered for not loving it enough.
And if I've ever loved something, I ain't stopped.
I just spent some time on other stuff.

And with all the risks that I never take
I could go my whole life with no mistakes

And if I ever loved something,
I guess I've spent my time on other stuff.
