Howie Day – Be There

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 12:39 am by LynxLee


I’m sure everyone remembers Howie Day’s Collide.
This song sounds about the same with a little more beat.
If you’re gonna be there, be there.
If you’re gonna stay, stay tonight.
Start living. Out with the old.
I’m all lit up, must be the good life.

When the morning came, I was up before first light.
And your bed was made, must have cut out sometime last night.
And my heartbeat started pounding out a rhythm in my brain.
A voice from deep inside said, “You’ve got to be insane.”
Everyone knows how this old story goes,
So I got in that taxi and drank my conscience away.

If you’re gonna be there, be there.
If you’re gonna stay, stay tonight.
Start living. Out with the old.
I’m all lit up, must be the good life.

I went to your friend’s house and begged you to open the door.
With your hands on your hips, you spoke while I sat down on that floor.
Two dishes in the kitchen sink, the way you treat me when you drink,
You don’t look so superior when you give your opinion.
Don’t think I don’t know how you act on your own.
And just who are those names on your cell phone, anyway?

If you’re gonna be there, be there.
If you’re gonna stay, stay tonight.
Start living. Out with the old.
I’m all lit up, must be the good life.

You’re a cool breeze and the setting sun;
New Years, the 4th, wrapped into one.
You make me want to be someone that you could look up to.

If you’re gonna be there, be there.
If you’re gonna stay, stay tonight.
Start living. Out with the old.
I’m all lit up, must be the good life.

Come on get love.
Come on and try.
Come on now, what are you waiting for?

(repeat 4x)

When the morning came I was up before first light.
