[All words & music by David Halliday]

Somethin' ain't right gone bad to the bone
We're at someplace where it's all just dry as dust
There's a look in your eye when you say you're goin' alone
And my nerves are screamin' boom and bust
But I drain my glass dry meet the gaze in your eye
And say babe well that's just fine
It's in the way that you walk the way that you talk
Hell knows somethin' ain't right

Y'know I take these little strolls in the gloom of the night
Down some dead end street off memory lane
And I recollect a time when you were all shy
All innocence and sweetness and light
Smilin' came easy and the good times rolled in
I'd run red lights to get home to you
Now I can't get you on the phone number unknown
Hell knows somethin' ain't right

Now there won't be no saints in heaven prayin' for me
A sinner I am from time to time
So when my vices come a-callin' and you catch my morals fallin'
Remember I am just a man

Now somethin' ain't right got snapped at once more
Got all chewed up and spat out on the floor
Evenin' time's a killin' time the couch a no-man's-land
Just starin' out the god-damn TV
I scrape around for pleasantries sweet nothin's in your ear
But the air then turns a mighty shade of blue
There's no use denyin' that the joker's in town
Hell knows somethin' ain't right
