Hey Kid - Matt Willis

Lyin' here, arm around my girl,
Turn on the radio.
Shame we had to bail,
You know we put on quite a show.
What am I gonna do?
I left on my answer phone,
Tell them what I told you
Right now I just don't know.
And I said,

Hey! Kid!
Don't think you gotta try and be somebody, yeah!
It happens on its own.
I said it's all right.
Hey! (Hey!) Kid! (Kid!)
You don't get along trying to be nobody else,
It's god-damned right, you know!

Every day will break,
But another comes along.
Won't have long to wait,
And you've always got that song.
It's funny when you're drunk (funny when you're drunk!)
How everything is clear.
"Come check out my bunk!"
And get the rock right out of here.
And I said,

Hey! Kid!
Don't think you gotta try and be somebody, yeah!
It happens on its own.
I said it's all right.
Hey! (Hey!) Kid! (Kid!)
You don't get along tryin' to be nobody else,
It's god-damned right, you know!

Feelin' so much better in this frame of mind,
'Cause I've been sick of taking over all the good guitars
And I know (and you know) I'm a capable guy.
I got so many things I wanted to do
And I got the chance to prove it to you!
Hey - I'm lyin' (I'm lyin'!) 'cause I waited my life
And I am ready to blow,
But when I do something about the wind and rain,
They start all over again,
And I need some pieces from you!

Hey! (Hey!) Kid! (Kid!)
Don't think you gotta try and be somebody, yeah!
It happens on its own.
I said it's all right.
Hey! (Hey!) Kid! (Kid!)
You don't get along tryin' to be nobody else,
It's god-damned right, you know!

Hey! (Hey!) Kid! (Kid!)
Don't think you gotta try and be somebody, yeah!
It happens on its own.
I said it's all right.
Hey! (Hey!) Kid! (Kid!)
You don't get along tryin' to be nobody else,
It's god-damned right, you know!
