On & on & on - Streetlight Manifesto

I still remember that night
it was the fourth of July
It's still engraved in my mind
and I'm not surprised.
Gang wars no guns hand to hand.
You're black I'm white he's purple
but I still don't understand.
I'm going to be alright
I'm going to be okay
everything is going to be fine
back off cause I want to be alone
I want to think it out
and I'm thinking that I want to go home.

[Chorus:]
Look who's laughing now.
I'll pull it off somehow.
As I passed her by I could see her cry
and I'll never forget the look that was in her eye
and the music you know it played on & and on & on
so won't somebody tap her on the shoulder
tell her life goes on.

3 years 2 months 1 week 4 days
I'm always counting down
because there ain't no easier way
trust me you know that I tried
and if I said it was easy
then you know that I told a lie.
I'm going to be alright
I'm going to be just fine.
One down five billion to go.
Am I the next in line and
do I really want to know?

[Chorus]
