lyrics

Thomas Griswold / Gary Burr

Something ain’t right when a kid’s 19
And he can’t sleep at night ‘cause of things
He’s seen that day
Something ain’t right when you wanna leave your bed
And a blast of cocaine and some Walker Red’s
The only way

When chaos is your comfort zone
When you’re in a crowd but you’re all alone
And you always need an exit sign in sight
Something ain’t right
Something ain’t right

Something ain’t right when to feel alive
You need to strap on your gear and take a long fast ride
Down the highway
Something ain’t right when what you’ve been through
Makes simple words like “I love you”
So hard to say

When “I’m Ok” is just a lie
You’re telling friends that are stopping by
And you’re slow to talk but so damn
Quick to fight
Well, something ain’t right
Something ain’t right

Please be patient with me
Kindness is all I need

When a boy comes home
A different man
It’s okay if you don’t understand
Just remember when he’s pacing
The floor at night
Something ain’t right
Something ain’t right

No something ain’t right
