lyrics

We’ve had a lot going on in the background
I think we thought we had a fix and found a new sound
Turn some heads, strike the chords and burn the new valve
(The wait is over and the wait is over)
You know it’s hard getting all of the parts right
We spent a lot of time crushing the nuts tight
Red-eye itch and awkward aches from going all night
(The wait is over and the wait is over)
Our valves and reeds bleed, tearing up the new wave
Knew they could take it, smash it, torch it in their own way
All we ever heard was not to do things our way
(The wait is over and the wait is over)
So load the van high, head out over midnight
Go find those kids we knew when this was still a highlight
Turn some heads, strike the chords and cover Streetlight
(The wait is over and the wait is over and…)

Hey you, you know we’re getting older
Yeah, and I’m sorry I told ya
But we’ve got, gotta start finding ways to
Chase this down before it fades away
And hey you, you know we won’t surrender
Yeah, ‘cause there’s no getting younger
We’ve got, gotta start finding ways to
Chase this down before it fades away

Did you ever think that this could be a safe bet? (Oh no!)
Lesser numbers with a simple change of our frets
No going backwards to start over with a new set
(The wait is over and the wait is over)
So load the van high, head out over midnight
I think those kids we found have never lost their ska rights
Turn some heads, strike the chords and cover Streetlight
(The wait is over and the wait is over and…)

Hey you, you know we’re getting older
Yeah, and I’m sorry I told ya
But we’ve got, gotta start finding ways to
Chase this down before it fades away
And hey you, you know we won’t surrender
Yeah, ‘cause there’s no getting younger
We’ve got, gotta start finding ways to
Chase this down before it fades away

Chase this down!
Chase this down!

Hey you, get up and get over
Come in just a few steps closer
A few more bars until disclosure
(The wait is over and the wait is over)
Don’t ask, just know what I’ve told ya
My truth stands as strong as a boulder
Come on and sign your name as our soldier
(The wait is over and the wait is over, yeah!)

Hey, and I’m sorry I told ya
But we’ve got, gotta start finding ways to
Chase this down before it fades away
And hey you, you know we won’t surrender
Yeah, ‘cause there’s no getting younger
We’ve got, gotta start finding ways to
Chase this down before it fades away

Hey you, you know we’re getting older
Yeah, and I’m sorry I told ya
But we’ve got, gotta start finding ways to
Chase this down before it fades away
Hey you, you know we won’t surrender
Yeah, ‘cause there’s no getting younger
We’ve got, gotta start finding ways to
Chase this down before it fades away

Before it fades away
Before it fades away
Hey you!
