Fumbled keys and dirty words Wipe the dew off the car and in the parking lot Mocking daybreak songs of some punk who’ve got the nerve Or maybe the worm But it’s easier to get things done Yeah it’s easier when you didn’t have last night I only lost it for a night ‘Cause thinking turned to knowing there must’ve been something going on Everyone tries for far to long Everyone leaves And when it’s raining and you’re drinking it’s still raining Don’t you know? It’s such a shame, such a shame that you went away I’m only drinking, only drinking when it’s raining From now on It’s such a shame, such a shame that you went away And as for last night I only lost it for a night ‘Cause thinking turned to knowing there must’ve been something going on Everyone tries for far to long Everyone leaves When it’s raining and you’re drinking it’s still raining Don’t you know? It’s such a shame, such a shame that you went away I’m only drinking, only drinking when it’s raining From now on It’s such a shame, such a shame that you went away

So tell me now What’s the point of all of this? If you got something, a better option, I’m all ears Cause I can’t help I can’t help but thinking it’s been a long time Since I’ve held high any thoughts that don’t disappear There ain’t no time for second guessing Here we go again Life’s too short so we’ll be up until the morning Wondering what to do and where to begin And I’ll sleep when I’m clever Looks like I’ll be awake forever If this van keeps rolling as much as your eyes we’ll get home fine Cause we can’t wait long We’re gonna die in this place And I bet if we tried I still couldn’t hide the sadness on my face There just ain’t time for second guessing Here we go again Life’s too short so we’ll be up until the morning Wondering what to do and where to begin Closing down your bars Staring at the stars Giving new names to constellations And there’s always more Than we bargained for We are mostly still standing We’re still here We are still here And until then Here we go again

Well it’s a great time to feel so alive Sitting on a bench just waiting to die Those last words are never enough And then something went wrong with us Well it’s imagining a direct flight back out east And the way your boots slip on ice-covered streets Spending all day waiting for a bus Then something went wrong with us Seems to me if you just keep on riding you won’t have to get off To be so fatally directional and still feel so lost Oh if I don’t care and you don’t care aren’t we just carrying on? And when it’s cold as hell it’s how you lend me your coat And it’s tired of this town, tired of growing old And I’ll be the car if you’ll be the rust And then something went wrong with us Seems to me if you just keep on riding you won’t have to get off To be so fatally directional and still feel so lost Oh if I don’t care and you don’t care aren’t we just carrying on? Well it’s counting on your fingers and moving to your toes The times you felt tired, the times you felt alone And every rest stop in all of Iowa Well something went wrong with us Well it’s a drawn out pause with nothing to say And then feeling like you might do better in L.A. Somehow those last words are never enough And then something went wrong with us

about

The Right Here turns a new page with their latest release, ‘Northern Town.’ Their fourth record is an anthem dedicated to the late nights we’ve all experienced. From reminiscing about the ones that got away (or for being better-off), feeling trapped, spending time with the best of souls at your favorite local haunt, and asking yourself, “what if?” ‘Northern Town’ explores a narrative to which we can all relate. The grit and wisdom gained since their previous release comes through in the melodies and lyrics from start to finish. Buy ‘em a round at their next tour stop, and they’ll return the favor.
