The Way It Always Starts

Lyrics

It gets so dark before the dawn
That’s when it gets to me
Before the city symphony of taxi horns

That’s the way it always starts
Sitting here and waiting on the beating of my heart

Last night I thought I heard my name
Well it was too dark to see, but it had to be
The voice was just the same

That’s the way it always starts
Sitting here and waiting on the beating of my heart

So tell me why should it have to be this way
Why can’t it be all right
Why can’t I sleep at night?
Why should it have to be this way?
Why must there be this price to pay?

Now all the streets are dark and bare
Oh, if you can live in this town
And stick around, you can live anywhere

That’s the way it always starts
Sitting here and waiting on the beating of my heart
