lyrics

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.

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
