Marshall Crenshaw – Somebody Crying lyrics

(m. Crenshaw)

Right, no warning. None at all
Just the word, "goodbye," written backwards
On the wall
Now my anger is in overdrive
So down the road I'm bound 'til I track you down
Dead or alive
I heard somebody crying and the sky turned black and grey
Say, miss lady, where are you today?
Call me daddy rolling stone
As I make my way down the back roads all alone
Why did you do it? I don't care!
I won't end this ride 'till you're by my side,
This I swear
I heard somebody crying and the sun's dropping out of sight
Say, miss lady, where are you tonight?
