Hey Now

Album: (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995)
  • I hitched a ride with my soul
    By the side of the road
    Just as the sky turned black
    I took a walk with my fame
    Down memory lane
    I never did find my way back
    You know that I gotta say time's slipping away
    And what will it hold for me
    What am I gonna do while I'm looking at you
    You're standing ignoring me
    I thought that I heard someone say now
    There's no time for running away now
    Hey now! Hey now!
    Feel no shame - 'cause time's no chain
    Feel no shame
    The first thing I saw
    As I walked through the door
    Was a sign on the wall that read
    It said you might never know
    That I want you to know
    What is written inside of your head
    And time as it stands
    Won't be held in my hands
    Or living inside of my skin
    And as it fell from the sky
    I asked myself why
    Can I never let anyone in ?
    I thought that I heard someone say now
    There's no time for running away now
    Hey now! Hey now!
    Feel no shame - 'cause time's no chain
    Feel no shame
    I hitched a ride with my soul
    By the side of the road
    Just as the sky turned black
    I took a walk with my fame
    Down memory lane
    I never did find my way back
    You know that I gotta say time's slipping away
    And what will it hold for me
    What am I gonna do while I'm looking at you
    You're standing ignoring me
    I thought that I heard someone say now
    There's no time for running away now
    Hey now! Hey now!
    Feel no shame - 'cause time's no chain
    Feel no shame
