lyrics

Hey!

I get scared
That I might never be lonely again.
I get scared ‘cause
If that’s true I could lose my friend.

Hey, my friend.
Yeah, my friends, they play in the dirt.
They look down.
They can look down at their shirts.
And they might see their blood, but they know they’re not hurt.

Got to be running,
And we’ve been running.
Now, I’m not.
What you say?
(Hey, hey, hey!)
And I’ve been running.
I’ve been thinking that,
(Hey, yeah)
Well, it’s all that I got.

I get tired
Of the kids making noise in the street.
I get tired.
I get so tired standing here on my feet.

Well, when they see you,
Yeah, they got to see you stand tall.
So you got to be sure
You can get alone if you fall.
I got to go now. I got to save y’all.

Got to be running,
And I’ve been running.
Now, I’m not.
What you say?
(Hey, hey, hey!)
And I’ve been running,
And I’ve been thinking that,
(Hey, yeah)
Yeah, that’s all that I got.

Ah, what you got?
(Hey, hey, hey!)
Come on, come on. Help me out.

Wait, I got one more.

Hey! I’ve been running,
And I’ve been running.
It’s alright!
It’s OK!
(Hey, hey, hey!)
And I’ve been running.
Well, that’s all that I got.
(Hey, yeah)
That’s all I got.

I’m not scared.
I say, I just can’t lose. (I’ve been running!)
I’m not a-scared to walk around here
Without-a no socks and no shoes.

But I still get scared.
Yeah, I get scared just standing on the ground.
And I get tired.
See, I get tired from sitting down.
That’s all I got for now. See you around.

Got to be running,
And I’ve been running.
Now, I’m not.
Huh? Do it.
(Hey, hey, hey!)
And I’ve been running.
I’ve been thinking that,
(Hey, yeah)
Yeah, that’s all that I got.

Hey, I’ve been running.
It’s alright! It’s OK!
What you say!?!?
What you say!?!?
(Hey, hey, hey!)
And I’ve been running…

(Hey, yeah)
And that’s all I got now.

Oh, run it.
(Hey, yeah)
Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey.
(Hey, yeah)
It’s all I got now.
(Hey, yeah)
Huh, what you got now?
(Hey, yeah)
Ah, get out now!

(Hey!!! Hey, hey, hey.)

(Hey!)
(Hey.)

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
